Tildas' Town Challenge Fairwell

Hello Friends
Well, I have been home from holiday for a week now and as soon as the mountain of laundry was washed, ironed and stored away, I spent a little time in my craft room. Sir Stampalot  sent me the some new Magnolia stamps so I had fun making some "Hippy" cards. The new "Boho" collection is perfect for painting in distress colours. It gives them a real  vintage feel.
 As you probably know, I am part of the long running "Tildas' Town Challenge" design team.
Unfortunately this challenge is closing as the store owner is no longer going to sell Magnolia stamps. So sad.
So, I would like to say a BIG thank you to Pam and all my talented teamies....I will miss you....and I am sure to bump into you all in Blog Land as we continue our journey.
This is FREE SPIRIT TILDA, coloured using distress re-inkers, a 00 brush and Langton watercolour card. The card shape was cut with GoKreate dies and the paper is SUMMER CRUSH by MAJA. I have inked and stitched all the edges with a deeper thread than usual and I quite like the contrast.

The star crescent die is new from JOYCRAFTS. I cut it in card and paper, gluing and doubling for strength, then adding a good sprinkle of Glamour Dust and pink pearls. The border was cut with the "Tilda's Lace" Doo Hickey die and two more Doo Hickey dies made the leaves for the flowers.

I used some Liquid Pearls and Glamour Dust on Tilda and around the image, before sewing it to a paper doily.

I do hope you have a good week.
 There is a nip in the air this morning and I am watching the children going off to school with their parents, all wrapped up in their coats. I do hope we haven't yet said goodbye to summer.
I will be back in the week with a second "Boho" card.
Till then, take care.
