Hi everyone, Tilda coloured with my usual Derwent Pencils and Noir pens. For a change I decided to NOT use any pattern papers. I used plain cardstock in blue/white/yellow. The beads / cloth and lace were from my stash. Die cut butterfly, flowers and cute tiny tags were used as embellishments. I stamped the sentiment which says " Everything when shared with a friend tastes better". Thanks for stopping by and krafty hugs x

Hi everyone, First I  stamped a rose then coloured with ink. My first time trying this (ink colouring) and it was fun. My background paper was from my stash. I die cut a large heart from card and lightly dusted with glamour dust and white ink. To enhance the rose I used glossy accents then dusted with glamour dust. I die cut some leaf spray from card. Some small butterflies I cut from leftover cardstock (background) The larger butterfly I made from air dry clay . I used lace/cloth on background and finished with small glossy heart and hand tied bow from organza. Thanks for popping by.
