Dreaming of Edwin!!

Evening folks,
Well time to share with you another Tilda project. This card has been a bit of a marathon for me and has been designed and redesigned at least 20 times in the last few days. With all the elements I wanted to include I knew it had to be a big card so it is a 8.5" square which is softened by the MS Punch Around The Page.

I used the gorgeous Dp's from Basic Greys 'Plumeria' collection and faux stitched round all the edges then distressed them with Pumice Stone DI. I coloured the beautiful Tilda with my Distress Markers, then added some stunning lace and flowers from my stash. I added white paint to the edges for a bit of a shabby chic feel.

The whole card was centered around wanting to use this gorgeous metal plaque. I first distressed it a little with white paint. Then I stamped the super cute mini Groom Edwin and coloured him with my Promarkers then coated him with 2 coats of Glossy Accents to give an enamel feel.
Everything was then finished with the beautiful Doo Hickey butterflies and some Memory Box flourishes.

I am entering this into the following fab challenges:
 MDUC - #181 'Wings'
Totally Tilda - #64 'Photo Inspiration'
Inky Chicks - #2 'Becky's Bingo Grid' (HOUSE!!!)
ABC - 'F for Favourite Tilda'
Basic Grey Challenges - #86 'Love Is In The Air'
Ribbon Girls Magnolia Only - #1 'Use Ribbons or Lace'
Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia - #61 'Ribbon or Lace'

That's all from me today
Happy Crafting
Big Hugs
