Lilac Tilda (Finally!)

You won't believe how many attempts I had at a lilac Tilda haha! Made the mistake of making the card, adding the image to colour whilst its stuck on *but* I was using a tilda I got in a swap and the paper quality was really really poor and the poor love bled profusely. Then I tried again and looked at a couple of sketches but my head wouldnt work right so I ended up taking a deep breath and stepping back and just going at it freestyle with a tilda I know is on whisper white! Oh then I did the cuttlebug technique and fluffed that as well so that took a couple of goes so finally I managed it lol!

Tilda coloured with promarkers, I've scribbled a sakura clear pen on the circle background then quickly rubbed in with my finger, this gets rid of the pen lines leaving just the glitter. I've edged with a versa magic inkpad and stickles round the edge plus a sprinkle of glamour dust just to make sure it was sparkly enough! The very sparkly background is this fab sticky stuff I picked up at The Stampman which is like sticky back plastic but glittery so you can stick things on it without them falling off as they tend to do on glitter card. Added tons of pearls which come on a line so you just snip off how many you want (also from The Stampman) and various flubbers from stash :)

There ya go Corry I DID IT mwhahaha!
