Once Upon A Time Ballerina

Hello Everyone, I just popped onto to show you my latest card, using the latest release of Magnolia Tilda, Once Upon A Time Collection.

I have coloured her with prisma pencils in Light Cerulean Blue, True Blue & Cloud Blue For Her Dress & Process Red, Magnenta & Rose Pink for her pretty shoes and crown. A little stickles highlights her crown and cuffs to add a little sparkle. As I always do with prisma pencils, I used the low odour solvent method, which is my favourite of all the techniques.

I have wrapped the "once upon a time" sentiment banner around a tiny wooden spool (another favourite of mine!) and distressed them both with DI. The Sentiment is from last years prince and princesses range, so works especially well with alot of this new collection, I used the castle from the same collection in the card below!  I have included a blue pearl and crystal hat pin, which I make myself.I have used four pieces of  Tilda Paper & four distressed colour core card, all distressed via sanding, this is great card and I just love using it to create the distressed effect.

The tiny wooden spool, distressed bark heart and lace are all from Live and Love Crafts, also some of the flowers are from the same store, aswell as from The Hobby House & The Ribbon Girl, all links are in my side bar.

Thanks for dropping by my little blog.
Have a great week.
