Anything goes / DT call at Simply Magnolia

Good day,

I have a tag to share with you today for our Midweek reminder for Anything goes challenge at Simply Magnolia
we also have a DT call if you would like to join our team.  
You still have a week to enter our challenge and DT call.


Papers I used are from Prima Botanical Collection called Romance, distressed the edges,
inked with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain and stitched with the sewing machine.


This little cutie is called Hello I'm Tilda and she is colored with copics
For the clock, I used Tim Holtz die on Grunge paper, added Weathered wood paint, 
then applied Picket Fence Crackle paint over it all.

Hair: E49, E59, E57, E53, E50

For the butterflies I used Magnolia Butterfly Kit stamps 
on coffee filters with black archival ink.  
The great part of it is that the inks soaks through the papers so the image 
is visible from both sides.


I also misted some perfect pearls over it all (Except the image) to add a little shimmer
