Tilda with heart socks

i have to admit that i wasnt sure how i was gonna use this image, i felt that the hands were at a strange angle as if she is hanging onto something, but then how do you hang with your hands at that angle.  Hsving said that though i do think she's really cute so had to use her.  then i love all Magnolia images, lol
i followed a sketch off the net that i loved since it had so many fab layers, i used some jute for layering, love this stuff
all the other bits and bobs on my card are things i have in my endless stash, look out for a video soon, you will be able to see my craft space and how i store all my stash, and just how much i have.
i hope you enjoy this card

when things dont work the way you planned

I had a vision for this image, but if i tell you when i look at it now, i ask myself "what was i thinking?"
the paper is too busy and my image seemed to get a bit lost.  However i thought i would share with you anyway, since i know that i havent posted much lately.
I was reorganising my studio a few weeks ago and pushed a wall unit that i hadnt unpacked, across the room and managed to tear the ligaments in my back, so i have kinda been man down!  will be a few more weeks before i manage to feel 100 % again, but am pleased to share that i am feeling a lot better.
so for my card i used lots of layers of die cuts and doillies, tons of Gesso on each layer, a pearly flourish and i would have liked to have made the image appear as if she were on a layer of flowers, oh well you win some and lose some.  I haven seemed to recieve any new stamps in months so i went ahead and bought this one as i just had to have her.  Hopefully the postman will bring me some new stamps soon so i can get inspired by all the new stamps out there and start to share some more of my work.
