A Window Tilda card

A reminder to anyone who stops in, right now at Paper Sundaes we are giving away a new hAnglar Stanglar stamp (the one in my blinkie in my right hand sidebar).  There are seven ways to enter, including participating in our weekly challenge.  This week the challenge is to 'Make a Scene', so for my card today, I decided to make another Magnolia scene card.  By entering our current challenge, you will automatically be entered to win a gift certificate for My Creative Classroom too!

Apparently this is my week to try new things.  On Sunday, I made a side-step card for the first time, and today I made a window card for the first time!  I used another 2 of my new stamps from Magnolia US, they are just so adorable!  I used Tilda With Eggs in her Apron on the front, but covered the eggs with flower soft for a more generic spring theme.  Inside the card (and window) I used the Magnolia Spring Background.  Both of these appear to be out of stock right now :(  Ooh, I hope Tilda doesn't spill all of those apple blossoms!

Here is a close-up:

I definitely need to keep playing with the distress inks, I have lots of room for improvement!

Here is the inside:

Materials used:
Stamps:  Magnolia- Tilda with Eggs in her Apron, Spring Background
Ink- Versafine
Medium- Distress Re-inkers
Paper- PTI CS, American Crafts DP
other:  Flower soft, Basic Grey pearls, unknown mini flowers, nestabilities

I am entering this card into a few challenges:
The layout is from the current sketch at Magnolia-licious Highlights by Claudia Rosa.
Magnolia Stamp Lovers- Scene card
Totally Gorjuss- Texture (flowersoft)
Papertake Weekly- Cutie Pie

Thanks for stopping by!

Christine, gorgeous card. You’ve set up the scene beautifully. Love scenic cards—must do more of them. Wonderful colours and fabulous colouring. I’ve never tried using distress inks to colour—something I’d like to try. Terrific job on your window card.
