Japanese Tilda

Week 98 favourite colour combo


I have been inspired to make this card following the terrible events in Japan. As I was making the card my thoughts were with all the survivors of the quake and tsunami, who now face starting there lives over with the further complications of a possible nuclear meltdown. It make you realise how lucky we are.




I have used Magnolia's Japenese tilda and coloured her with promakers and added glamour dust to give a little sparkle. The papers are V&A Hanoverian linen pack which are beautiful to work with. I distressed with Tim Holtz antique linen. The sketch i used was from the magnolia challenge for last week but I didnt manage to get my card completed in time to enter. But I have entered for this weeks as it is my favourite colour to craft with.


  For the doily which is a sakura flower and the circle i used my silhouette sd machine, i then distressed again in antique linen. I stamped around the circle a small leaf in distress ink just to add a little extra definition.


I punched the little flowers from a tiny docraft punch and added a little rhinestone to each one.
