Just Because Tilda Card


Hi all, thought I would make another Tilda card, I've followed the Magnolia Down Under sketch by Chantelle. My first thoughts were to use mainly white, but as the card progressed it became more gold than white.  Tilda is coloured with Promarkers keeping to golden yellows.  I cannot remember the name of the background paper, I've taken part of this paper for the side panels where I've randomly applied thick gold embossing powder and then applied gold glitter over the top.  The leaves and scrolls were cut from gold card I also made the lattice window from strips of the same card. white roses and butterfly complete the card.
Hope you like and thank you for stopping by

Oh my gosh, your skill with Promarkers is awe-inspiring!! I never became real friendly with them but you are just performing miracles. And I like the lattice idea - so different and very nice.
Thanks for the tip about smooth watercolour paper for pencils, will give it a try once I manage to find it. I only have NOT surface one atm and the craft shop near me does not stock hot-pressed one. :(
