The Rubber Buggy 'Princess Tilda with Ballet Shoes'

  Morning all, hope your having a good weekend! Today I'm posting for The Rubber Buggy inspiration blog. If you haven't allready made your self familiar with The Rubber Buggy store, it is an exciting new craft shop stocking all the latest Magnolia stamps as well as past collections. Other great names include Graphic 45, Prima, Tim Holtz, Saturated Canary and much, much more. Be sure to click on the store link above & have a nosey around - there's some great items & Kelly aims to make it into your one stop craft shop.
Anyway on to my Saturday spot card, I used this great sketch from the Magnolia Down Under Challenge as a starting point...
I used my new 'Princess Tilda with Ballet shoes' from the new 'Once Upon a Time '13 collection. It's the first time I've coloured her & she is defo now one of my all time fave Tildas!

Below shows 2 removable tags (Doo Hickey Vintage Tags) with shabby seam binding bows & twine bows with silver heart charms, other tag is Doo Hickey So Wrapped Lovely. Decorated with Crackle Paint in Picket Fence & mini-alphas to spell 'dancer'.

Lovely papers are by Maja Design, edges have been inked with Antique Linen & Walnut Stain Distress Inks using blending tool and sewn on the machine. I've added a few layers of blue & white Frantage around the image with Versa Mark ink pad & sert with heat tool.

Distress Inks:
Skin - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut stain shading
Cheeks - Tattered Rose & Aged Mahogony
Tu-tu & Ballet shoes - Whethered Wood, Black Soot shading
Crown & frill netting - Pumice Stone & Black Soot
I then added some white Sakure pen highlights.

Above shows Martha Stewart clay frame I made with LOTV sentiment. Below I cut the bottom strip of the Maja papers into a banner shape, then attached in a curved fashion with 2 square pewter metal brads. Flowers are a mixture of Kort & Godt & Prima. Foliage is Doo Hickey swirl & leaf cut from Core'dinations Whitewash cardstock.
