Titian hair Tilda Challenge DT card

Hi gals!

Well we have another awesome challenge happening over at Totally Tilda Challenge Blog so why don't you hop on over and have a look Totally Tilda Challenge Blog

So Titian in case you are not sure means red or auburn hair. Such a gorgeous rich colour! So for this challenge we are sponsored by                  

Prize on offer from The Ribbon Girl will  be 
 £10 voucher for the store.Ribbon Girl
So for this challenge I used one of the new stamps from the awesome new collection 'catch Tilda' she is just adorable! I thought since it was a wedding stamp a shaker card was called for.  So for this I cut a circle in the middle of my card to make the window, I then cut the same size circle in my design papers which are from Kaisercraft 'Sweet Nothings' collection. This paper went lovely with the cardstock in 'Ballet'. I then cut a square of acetate/acrylic sheet and this is the window. I mounted this against the card stock with double sided foam. REMEMBER! to make sure that nothing care escape, that it I sealed nicely so none of you shaker beads/glitter can escape! that's not the kind of surprise that we are going for! lol. For my shaker material I used small beds and some Martha Stewart Glitter.
Now for the image. I stamped Tilda in waterproof ink and then coloured her with Distress Inks. Now as this is a Titian Hair challenge this was the main focus of the card. I like a nice bright and vibrant red so here are the colour combo that I used-
Hair- Fired Brick/Rusty Hinge/Wild honey
As you can see there I used the real bright colours for it and they blend together perfectly.
Here is the colour combo for the rest of the card!
Skin - Tattered rose/Worn lipstick (she is a blushing bride after all!)
Dress- Vintage Lace/Aged mahogany
Flowers- Scattered straw/ Peeled paint
Floor- Brushed corduroy
Background- Tumbled glass
Now in her hair I added some flat-back hearts  in red. In her flowers I then glued some flat-back beads in yellow.
Now for the embellishments! Some gorgeous lace with bling from my own stash, Some Prima flowers (Bretton Vines-Alyssa, and Pixie Vine Fairy Bella) These are just gorgeous and I do have a thing about Prima anything! Added to this some blossom flowers at the bottom. I then used a gorgeous dusty pink velvet ribbon to make it look like a bouquet. Added to this is a die cut of a Tilda's vintage tag and stamped 'The best thing to hold onto in life is each other' from the 'Cozy family' collection. Now again from the new collection I used the ceremony stamps of the rings on the tag and added some stickled in 'Diamond' to glitter like diamonds.
Finally, I added two charms a 'Love' to the tag and 'bow' to the flowers.
Hope you enjoy!
Love D xx
