Tilda in Windy Weather

Happy Wednesday!

Today, I have a card using Tilda in Windy Weather. You can find this stamp at 7 Kids College Fund!




I challenged myself with the distress inks to work on a different style of coloring, leaving a lot of white space. This is the style that I see used in Sweden quite often. I love to challenge myself with new techniques. I used this Spellbinders frame, cutting around the umbrella before die-cutting to give the effect of the umbrella being blown off the image.  

 The pinecones are created using the Tim Holtz  Tattered Pinecone Die-Cut. I added Stickles to the edges for that bit of bling. The background spray is made with the Tim Holtz Autumn Gatherings Die-Cut. I added some acorn buttons to the edges to complete the autumn theme.

I am entering this card in the following challenge:


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I love the vintage look this card has. The pinecones are perfect. I love distress inks and tried out the markers and found those a little more challenging than the inks, not bad and I am used to them now. Your Tilda is colored so pretty you did good with them.
