A little bit of vintage Tilda.....

Hi all, I hope you are all enjoying the long bank holiday weekend and have indulged in plenty of Easter treats! I've enjoyed being off from work and having the time to sit down and do some crafting. Here is one of the cards I made.....
I have had this stamp for quite a while and have been dying to get in it inked up and coloured. I think my inspiration came from the Marianne Umbrella die that I bought at the NEC last weekend.
I coloured her in Sepia style with a mixture of Walnut Stain and Black Soot Distress inks using pens, pads and re-inkers. I added a little bit of Worn Lipstick to her cheeks.

I made the roses using a Tonic punch. I punched out five pieces then stuck them all together using wet glue and an embossing tool. I distressed the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.

I absolutely love this Marianne umbrella. It was a bit fiddly to get out of the die, but partly my own fault, as i didn't use any wax paper.
The ingredients for the card were:
Magnolia Tilda stamp - Drip Drop Tilda
Walnut Stain/Black Soot distress inks
Spellbinders - Opulent Ovals
Marianne Creatables Umbrella - LR0263
Spellbinders - Parisian Accents (Corner)
Tonic punch
Cream Lace
Magnolia Tilda Paper - "Something Old, Something New" - Shoe Ornament
Cosmic Shimmer - Dark bronze - for the pearls
