Tilda with Wrapped heart

Good Afternnon.

Hope you are all well and hopefully getting in some crafty time.
I had a reminder yesterday about Google Reader finishing and would love it if those who haven't joined me already would do so. I would hate to lose contact with any of my crafty friends.

About 6 months ago I bought the full set of Tim Holtz markers and have not had any success with them. I didn't know whether it was the paper I was using, the brushes or just me. Well I have been determined to get to grips with them and have been watching video tutorials and bloggers tips and I new I just had to  practice, practice, practice. Well I took the bull by the horns yesterday and the results of my colouring are below.
I know my colouring can still be improved upon but I feel so chuffed that I have had some success with them



I have used Tilda with Wrapped Heart. The die she has been stamped onto is the Spellbinders Opulent Opels. The papers are Pion Fairytale of Spring.


The butterfly on the bottom right is a punch all over the page punch and the heart dies are by Memory Box
The border die is Tim Holtz Butterflight.  The tag underneath the hearts are from the LOTV 


The large flower which has been Frantaged (actually I think just about everything has been Frantaged)!!! is the result of some followers candy. The ribbon and heart pin are from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop (which is unfortunately closing). The white cluster flowers are from Live and Love Crafts and the pink and cream flower and tulip bud are from WOC. The sentiment is from LOTV.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
