I recently had a splurge of painting with some mica inks that have admit I'd forgotten I had but fell in love with again after seeing how they sparkle and shine. I had this image given to me a while , well ages ago when I belonged to a image swap and have been saving it as I don't have that many Tildas but decided I'd paint it in my sparkly inks. I just thought he dress would look great as shot taffeta after seeing all the beautiful little girl party dresses in the shops and wishing I was small enough to fit in them, how special they must make any little girl feel. Sorry I digress. Anyway the purple ink I have has a tonal effect with a green that just reminded me of taffeta which when it came to making up a Christmas card with her caused me to think and wonder what papers to use. I will also have this problem with another image I painted in the same colour more on that when I get around to using it.
I searched my scraps and found a small scrap from a scrap-booking set I bought from QVC several years ago so went rooting for the box that it came from and found a bigger piece, to find it had a border of lime green. I always thought it had a bit of an indian feel to it but when I put it with the image I was so happy that it worked. Not sure if it's the mottled pattern that makes it work or not but hey who cares, problem solved.
I fussy cut Tilda and mounted her on a spellbinders die cut oval and let her feet slip off the edge. The card I decided to keep clean and simple , am so loving this style at the moment but have to stop myself adding more as I often think is it too bare and looks unfinished.
I added white ribbon as per the sketch I followed from Tuesday morning sketches and a tag which I wrote a sentiment on in sakura gel pen. Card done.
