going back in time with 1920's Tilda!

Good morning everyone! Happy Friday!

So I am here today with a card with a theme that I LOVE- 1920's style. For this I used Tilda as a flapper! how cute is she!

I am entering my card in the following challenges-

Magnolia Mania- Vintage
Midweek Magnolias - Texture
Inky Chicks - From the heart
lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia- Lots of Layers
Magnolia Forever Challenge Blog - Anything goes

So for this card I masked Tilda onto a the piano stamp. I loved the theme of vintage and this to me is the perfect scene... think those smokey jazz bars in the 1920's (yes i like to make little stories up lol!) I coloured both of the images with Copics.

I used DP from the Kaisercraft 'Vintage Timeless' collection. This has the old style papers in that gorgeous yellow/ brown/tea colour which are perfect for any project which you want a vintage twist to.

Now for the texture- I used some cheese cloth, some mesh, two lots of lace, some fran-tage, and some of this gorgeous ruched ribbon trim. I used dies from Magnolia for the sentiment and for the edge of two of the DPs. I had to use the musical notes as Tilda is sitting on a piano! All the texture embellies are layered between the DPs. The sentiment stamp is from La La Land Crafts .

The flowers are a mix of Kaisercraft and WOC. I used a pearl trim, and draped it across the bottom of the image. All edges of the card are coloured with DI 'Vintage Photo'. I used a small natural coloured wood heart and a fan to finish off.

I hope you like my card!
