Shabby Chic Tilda

Good evening everyone, hope you have all had a good day wherever you are. Now I know I keep saying I love the Tilda images from Magnolia, well, I have bought some more and also have some of the new release ones on pre order!!!!! It's official I am not only addicted to blogging but Magnolia stamps too!!!!
This cutie is called Shabby Chic Tilda and I have sat her on a frame I won in a candy from Sarah AKA Anime Princess - a very talented young lady.
The sketch I have chosen to use is from a recent challenge find - Magnolia Stamp Lovers (how appropriate!!!) and is shown below. I have twisted it and added a few extras.

I coloured tilda with my inktense watercolour crayons, plus some glitter on her wings and the frilly bit of her top. The background is a cuttlebug folder - Fantasy Floral which I chalked with red to highlight the design.

The flowers and pin were from another candy win from Martine at the Craft Table - she has Simon Says candy at the moment too. The papers were from Funky Fairy's (now closed) and some music sheet paper I have had forever and never used - yeah I am keeping one of my New Years resolutions to use what I already have!!!

The sentiment is from a Fairy Doodles clear stamp set, chalked and distressed. There are also some heart gems because it looked rather bare in that corner!!

Now for the other challenges I am entering:-

Pile It On - Warm Wishes - my colours are warm,

Raise The Bar - The gift that keeps on giving - use anything someone has given you,

Allsorts Challenge - Hearts and flowers,

Saturday Spotlight - Let the sun shine in - use bright colours or mainly yellow,

Crafty Catz - Love,

Daring Cardmakers - What's the point - use something that points or has a point (my pin),

Pixie Dust Studio - Glitter and sparkle,

Flutterby Wednesday - Embossing plus a fairy, butterfly or angel (well Tilda does have wings), and

Magnolia Down Under - Valentine.

I will also enter this card in the Love blog hop at Practical Scrappers.

Please let me know what you think and also can anyone tell me where to find a Tim Holtz Distressing tool in England?
