Magical Worlds

Hello,
Apologies for delay between posts, I really must do some smaller projects and pick up the pace! The card I have just finished is a double twisted easel(I think!) and took longer than I'd hoped because I completely changed the background papers from what I originally had ready. I guess my mood changed halfway through and I didn't like the way it was turning out so did an about turn and started from scratch. I'm a lot happier with this version so it was worth it!

(Click on image to enlarge:)


The idea behind the images I chose is that the Fairy Godmother waves her wand and transforms Tilda into a princess - a story my daughter would approve of!

I love my newest Tilda- Hello Little Butterfly, but I ended up paper piecing her because I wasn't happy with how I'd coloured her in! Even the butterfly got paper pieced lol!
The other two Tilda's and the doily die behind them were borrowed from my friend Fleur(thanx soooo much!).


I admire everyone who is able to use their sewing machines and finish their work beautifully with some gorgeous stitching. I, however, STILL haven't managed to do this (very frustrating) so I've had to settle for second best and do faux stitching!


Other materials used:
Go Kreate card die
papers: Kaisercraft 'Le Chateau' and Magnolia Lace Flower
Magnolia Doo Hickey Antique Lace
Magnolia Tulips-other flowers from stash
SU- inks, hodgepodge buttons, leaf punch, scallop punch, little butterfly die
Sentiments- LOTV
Tim Holtz Distress inks
ribbons, pearls, embroidery thread, coloured buttons- from stash

Some wonderful challenges that inspired me:
Sir Stamp-a-lot - Magical Worlds
Magnolialicious Highlights - Sketch
Flutterby Wednesdays - Open challenge(add a butterfly, fairy or angel)
Just Magnolia - Anything goes (with real or faux stitching)
Paper Sundaes - Magical/Mythical Creations

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look, you make my day with your comments.
Love Nicola xxx

This is absolutely beautiful Nicola! It would have never ocurred to me to make a double twisted easel card. No wonder it took you longer than usual! The result is outstanding and I'm happy to have found you through Just Magnolia thumbnails.
Love your coloring and the design of your card/s is fantastic!
Hugs, Iulia- new follower:)
