Shabby/Anything goes!

Hiya gals!

Hope we are all well. I have been DYING to use this stamp so when I saw the challenges I couldn't resist. I am entering this card into the following blog challenges:

Live and Love Crafts- Anything goes! Live and Love Crafts
Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog-  Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog

For this card I used the awesome 'Charleston Tilda' and the paper collection that I just adore from Kaisercraft 'Elegance'. This collection had everything I like in it, peacock feathers, metallic, and a vintage feel to it. So here it is!

I used Kaisercraft 'Mineral' coloured cardstock for the body of the card. I then used 3 pieces of design paper from the 'Elegance' collection and one is metallic and at the back to light up the card. I then used the stripes and peacock feathers design paper. I distressed it and used Vintage photo ink pad fromTim Holtz collection to make it more shabby. I then used some shabby lace and mint green ribbon and lace to tie in with the vintage/shabby feel and the colour of the paper.  I then used my Spellbinders die and cut one in watercolour paper and the other in the metallic silver to decorate the oval in which the image will be stamped. I used the following colour combos in Distress Ink-

Skin- Tattered rose/Tea dye/ worn lipstick/spun sugar
Hair- Wild honey/vintage photo/ tea dye
Dress- Pine needles/ broken China
Flower- Mustard seed
Wings-  Weathered wood
Surround- broken china

I used the following embellishments- Flowers from Prima, Butterflies from Prima, Cheesecloth, and a ribbon charm.

I used my fave dies from Magnolia -The feathers and die cut these in the same very first metallic paper. I used the corner flourish die from LLLC and this again was in the same metallic paper.

I added Diamond Stickles to Tilda's shoes and to around her to make her twinkle. Finally, I added latte coloured pearls, from Kaisercraft, to give her earrings, and Blue grey Rhinestones to her hair to make bobbles. I then added the same colour rhinestones from Kaisercraft to the bottom left hand side of the card.
