Tilda in the meadow Easel card

  • The inspiration for this card is from a photo a friend, Linda 
  • Wallace sent me from her ranch in Texas.  The blue bells
  • were in full bloom and I thought it would make a beautiful card
  • for a Tilda.. So I printed the photo on card stock and colored a
  • Tilda using copics, cut her out and put  her on the photo.. I then
  • used MS liquid glue and dotted all over the blue bells and used
  • MS flocking powder and poured it on top.. there we had blue
  • bells...  I used Recollections pearls in each corner and on the
  • bottom and lavender ribbon with blue bells attached to it.
  • Used DCWV sentiment with my nestability to make a frame for
  • it.  I hope you enjoy my very 1st easel card.. it was fun and meant
  • a lot to me using my friends photo,  She will be getting the card.
  • Thank you for viewing my card and hope it will brighten your day..
  • Please leave a comment to let me know what you think of my 1st
  • try at this new venture of mine!!
  • Hugs, Jean
