Stop in the Name of Love Tilda

I hope you have shared with me, the beautiful weather here in the south east of England. It has been wonderful, just like Summer and forecasted to continue. I love sunshine so much...
Time for a new challenge over at "Tildas Town"  This week we would like to see "Flowers".  So, add some flowers to a Magnolia card or project and join in with us. You have the  chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to use at Tilda’s Town online Magnolia store.
For today's card, I inked and coloured, "Stop in the Name of Love Tilda" and matched her to some pretty Pion papers.
 As usual I coloured Tilda using distress re-inkers. Then added some Perfect Pearls and stitching.
The papers have had gesso and stitching to the edges. I used the same papers to cut a butterfly top layer using a Joy craft die and added pearls in their centre.  A matching bow holds a pearl and diamanté heart and a Swirl Doo Hickey is holding the sentiment.
The flowers are from my stash, mainly from Hobby Craft, with leaves cut from a Marianne die .
I was pleased with this card. I think I am getting better  using my inks. The shading has become more delicate in colour and Tilda's face has clear definition now. I like to keep a white area in the centre with colour just to the edges and cheeks. I can, and do spend hours colouring this little person. I just love her.
Thank you for all your comments, I love to read them.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
