Pitter Patter of Little Feet

A long-time friend recently announced the impending arrival of little feet & that gave me the excuse to use one of my seldom used (but still a favourite) Magnolia stamp, Mother to be Tilda.

Magnolia Mother To Be Tilda

All papers used are from a Grace Taylor Hopscotch paper pack, edged with Distressed Ink Vintage Photo. The stamped paper & kids playground paper are also distressed. Tilda is coloured with the following Copics: Skin: E000, E00, E21, R20 Hair: E37, E57, E49 Dress: BV000, BV02, BV13 Shoes & Bow: Y00, Y01, YG13. The sentiment stamp was found in the depth of my stash (unknown brand).

I started off with the Friday Sketch Challenge #58. I initially flipped it upside down, however it morphed considerably when I was building it. The ribbon & buttons are from my stash & the twine is from Stampin' Up. Both of the roses are made from a scollop punch, edged with Vintage Photo.

Ive added a light coat of lavender shimmer chalk to the Tilda background. The card is also double machine stiched around the background paper & Tilda. Its finished off with a splash of Kindyglitz.

Thanks for stopping by.
