So big........

Good Morning blog world.............


I had a great deal of difficulty working with this tilda w/open fence.  It was SO very large that it took up so much of the card that there wasn't much room for embellishments. At first I didn't have the flowers and I kept looking at it knowing it needed something else.  So once I added the flowers I liked it a bit more. Then I saw I had NO glitter on the card and what is a card without glitter! So, I added a little bit of stickles to the flowers. At first I glob it just on the edges, I didn't like that. So then I took a paint brush and spread it around...I still didn't like it.  See below! I don't think I would do that again, but it was one of those things that once it was done, it was done! There was no going back. I only had those white roses, so I couldn't replace them!  So they went on the card and another person will probably not think they look strange...so that is the person who will get this card! haha  Moral of the story, sometimes Glitter is not the answer!! Even though my 5 yr old daughter would argue that point!





I didn't add a sentiment on it yet. Sometimes I don't add them right away and I wait until I need it for a certain occasion and add it on then!

I colored tilda with Copic markers.  All the papers are from Close to my Heart. Border punch is MS. Flowers are Wild Orchids. Stay tuned and become a follower....I'm going to have BLOG CANDY in the next 2 days!! I can't wait! Hopefully I will get it up tomorrow.......

Hugs,

Tracy, I don't see a thing wrong with your glittered/painted flowers. Looks like they're "Possed" to be that way! How do you think NEW TRENDS are started, anyhow? I love this card and your coloring. Linda S. in NE
