My card today is for Magnolia Down Under Challenges. The challenge at MDUC this week is Paper Tole or 3D. I chose to paper tole my adorable little Tilda in Bunny Slippers. I have only recently acquired this beautiful little stamp and I thought she was a nice simple stamp to attempt to paper tole.
I cut my card using my new Marianne Design die and the beautiful pink checked paper is by Magnolia. I just adore Magnolia papers, the texture and quality is beautiful.
Here is a better picture of the paper tole:
Tilda's little bow, frilly pants and bunny slippers are all covered in stickles to sparkle and all of the edges are distressed and inked in Antique Linen DI. Tilda is coloured with my beloved Copic markers. There is a little bit of cheese cloth added to soften the card and some ric rak as well. For some reason I always think of ric rac when I make a baby card :)
The flowers and seam binding are both from Wild Orchid Crafts (Seam binding ribbon - peach, 25mm baby pink open rose, 15mm Ivory open roses, 5mm baby pink closed rose buds).
I had a great time making this card. I really enjoyed slowing down a little bit and colouring up multiples of my image to create something really special. Now I just have to wait for someone to have a baby girl so I can give it away!
We would love for you to join us at MDUC this week and try some paper tole. There are some links on the blog to some fabby tutorials and blogs to see some amazing examples, not to mention the amazing work of our DT. We also have a DT call on currently if you would like to add yourself to the linky ;)
I would like to enter little miss Bunny Slippers into some challenges:
Thanks for visiting me today! I hope to see you around in blog land again soon,
