Tilda With Wrapped Heart in Pastels

When the topic of Pastels was announced at Sweet Stampin' for this week's challenge, I was happy. This is Tilda With Wrapped Heart. She has been colored With Copics and then mounted on two ovals. I then mounted her on this beautiful die from Cheery Lynn. The paper on the left side of the pictures is my own personally made designer paper. I couldn't find a paper to match the green and white paper on the right so I made it. I took a very small Stampin' Up stamp that had a heart flower and some leaves/grass, and a Stamp By Judith of 3 little dots. I stamped them on cream colored paper with light green ink and then colored in the heads of the flowers with pink markers.

The bottom embellishment is a piece of fabric embroidery, with a pleated ribbon on top of it and then a string of pearls attached on top of that.  I also used a QuiKutz corner and a Stampin'-up sentiment.

Tilda is colored in Copics and mounted on two ovals and a Cheery Lynn Die. The flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid Flowers and Prima and the leaves die is by Martha Stewart.
