Tilda In Woods ~ Tilda & Co Challenge

I am happy I was able to get this card done! We are in the midst of soccer finals for two of our boys and it is a little hectic. Games every night of the week and 4 games on Saturday and 4 on Sunday if we make it through! My dear patient husband coaches both teams! We try to always go "en famille" to cheer each little guy on!
The challenge this week over at Tilda & Co was "cold as ice". I knew that I'd use this paper because it already has the frosted look. I was given this stamped image by Tanja and it was the inspiration for the card. I'm not sure what this little Tilda's name is but to me she looks like she is walking in the woods. I wanted to use her with this beautiful quote of Robert Frost's. The first time I ever heard it, I was in high school and it left a big impression on me. When I saw it came as a stamp, I just knew this was one I had to have. It is part of a set by Cornish Heritage called Motivational Centers. I stamped the sentiment with encore ink and then heat embossed it with pearl powder. I wanted to get the same feel as the DP. I cut it out with my long oval nesties. Then I cut out the same shape of oval on the card front but using a smaller oval. I then cut out a scallopped shape to frame it. Tilda is colored with Copic markers and I added stickles to the fringe on her hood and her wings. For the lantern, I added Glossy Accents to the glass to give it a smooth reflective finish. I think you can see it better in the close-up shot! I didn't add too much else to the card. Tilda's woods are quiet! Hope you like. Thanks for stopping by!

Just gorgeous Jeanette! Love how you embossed the sentiment and how you framed the sentiment by using the nestabilities. The image is of course so cute and appropriate for the upcoming winter season. Can you believe we're at the end of August. The summer has flown by. Hugs, Maria
