Chocolate & Cream, Vintage Style Tilda Card

I've been waiting to get time to have a play with these lovely printable papers from Stamping All Day's download site for a while now, and I finally had time to use some of them, and I love them!

First of all I cut and punched all of the various layers I would need, I then used Brilliance Pearlescent Ink in Galaxy Gold and Cosmic Copper to lightly sponge the very edge of all of the layers. I sponged the fancy circle more heavily to give a lovely golden finish. I had already coloured Tilda in co-ordinating colours and cut her out in anticipation of using the new papers, so I then got straight on with sticking all the layers together, adding the flowers, lace, ribbon and pearls to finish. I also added the Brilliance Inks to the flowers to glitz them up a bit. You may notice I used one of my new Marianne Creatables butterfly dies too, I punched this out of white card and coloured using promarkers and again edged with Brilliance inks and added some pearls to the body.
