Another card for a teacher!

I decided to treat myself to a few new goodies yesterday so I will eagerly be awaiting Mr Postie this week. Well after all I need to pat myself on the back for getting my new job and also having survived the sicky lurgy that has struck the family since Wednesday night (better not speak too soon though!) I have had 4 very sleepless nights and I needed a boost...is that a good enough excuse?

Anyway, one of my most recent purchases was a reduced Magnolia stamp - Tilda with Easter Egg...not one to miss a bargain ! Don't know about you, but I have to try out all my new stamps, even if I don't actually make a card with them...and after stamping her I wondered if she could somehow be adapted rather than just use her at Easter...such a waste!

Here is what I ended up with;



I used this weeks Tilda & Co Challenge which was to ..."Make her Distressed looking, a little rough around the edges, a bit of grungy! So stay clear of these cute pastel colours if you can help it and get down and dirty with tilda!"

Not sure that it has really worked, but either way I have my second Teachers card complete!

this is just stunning, I love the colouring on Tilda (she looks almost regal), lovely effect with the embossing too.

Such a lovely card, sure the teacher will love it...what a great idea to put a flower in tilda hands to camouflage the easter egg.
Congratulations on your new job..
