A Distressed Vintage Chocolate Tilda!

Here she is!
(I seem to work in phases and I am using Tilda's quite a bit at the mo!) She is coloured with PMs and I have decoupaged her a little and added pearls to her dress.

She is set in a sketch by Karen on the 'Craft Mad and Lovin' It' group for challenge #2 who also wanted lace and pearls. Things I don't normally use. I decided to really experiment with the whole distressed/vintage look once I got started. Some elements I like and some I'm not sure about.

I liked putting Tilda on to a piece of lacey material and I think this works well with the Victorian themed paper. I used the Craft Stamper flower and the MS punch flower with distress stickles and added some more lace and pins. I finished it with Gold glimmer mist and a few pearls here and there. The card was misted and stamped with the flower stamp in DI. The sentiment is an Inkadinkadooooooo! All the edges were distressed (a bit like me doing it) -LOL.

Challenges that are very inspiring with gorgeous DT work:

1. Totally Tilda Challenge #1 Chocolate (hosted by the fantabulous Susie Sugar)

2. Passion for PMs Challenge #61 Distressing

Thanks for the fun and inspiration (although I don't think this is my style really).

Have a wonderful Sunday.
