Tilda's Gift


Good morning to all my lovely blogging friends and visitors! It's a rainy day in Wisconsin, but I'm not complaining...we really need the rain!

Today, I'd like to share another vintage gift idea which I will also be entering in Tilda's Town. I found this tutorial on Marianne's blog. She is an amazing artist I have been following for a couple of years. Her work is truly spectacular and very inspirational.

The inside of this card has a place for a chocolate bar. I was going to place a Tobler bar on the inside, but, alas, it did not fit! Perhaps the smaller Dove bar will be just right....will have to see!!!! I used the lovely Pion Papers for this project and Miss Tilda is colored with copics.

Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. I appreciate it very much. Hugs, Christina

  32. Me again, Christina:-) Thank you for your lovely comments:-) and to answer your question, I have not sprayed anything on my image coloured in pencils, the white texture of the paper shows and is maybe accentuated by the photo, but it is 100% pencils. No fixative either:-) Have a lovely evening! Hugs Delphine xx
