Tilda in Inks......OMG!!!!




Good evening everyone! OMG....I just finished my first Tilda card in INKS!!!
Take it easy on me, girls....this is my first attempt and I know I need lots of practice!!!!! Angie would probably give me a D- for my first attempt. Let me tell you, that "Bee" paper is unforgiving!!!!! The Tilda on the front of my card is stamped on thicker watercolor paper sent to me by a dear friend. The inside Tilda was stamped on the super thin "Bee" watercolor paper. The designer paper is from K&Co.
The beautiful lace is from my dear friend, Claudia and the absolutely gorgeous blossom on the front of the card was a gift from my wonderful friend, Jacque. It is so pretty, I just hated using it on this mediocre card!!! I'll probably take it off and put something else in its place.
Not to worry, I will keep practicing!!!!! Thanks for visiting....big hugs, Christina

  14. Your card is cute. You should have seen my first attempts at the DI, they went into the trash. I can't use that Bee Paper, it was very hard for me to blend on. I'm using Fabriano Hot Pressed WC paper. I really like it. Have fun with your classes!
