Fairy Tale Tilda

Hi everyone~~Hope you had a great holiday!!!! I spent the day enjoying my crafts--why not I would of normally been working otherwise so why not spend day in FUNZY kind of way :)

Got out my Magnolia stamps and found this cutie that I got as a gift from Suzanne Dean~~Thanks so much Hun!!!!

Basic Grey Challenge Blog has a DT call Out and I am entering this Paper Piecing Tilda~~Wish me Luck!!!!

Used sketch From Pixie Cottage Challenge #34

I used two techniques on this Cute little fairy princess and her froggie :)
First I colored with Copics and Spicas and then Paper Pieced Her Dress and the Frog.
Next tried the Crackled Glass Technique and WOWWIE I love the Outcome :D
I did rub some TH tea dye ink over image after crackled it but I think the reinkers (something I don't have yet) would probably work better--it seemed to seep into the finer cracks better than larger ones. 

Lots of Pics ~~ Grab a Beverage and Enjoy!! 

Front of Card :)

Colored image with Copics and then Paper Pieced her dress and then paper pieced froggie with crown!!

This pic shows dimensions!!

The Easel Card completed!!

Used SB curved rectangle softened with TH tea dye ink for message area
All the pearls large and small were made with my Viva Violet Pearl Pen--Love It!!!

Next are close ups of Flowers, sentiment and All--was alittle picture Happy ;D

Aren't those pearls beautiful :)
