Fancy Tilda in Black, Red & Pink!



That's the the challenge at Manolia-licious challenge blog, and this is my card. Black & Red is MY colors (lol!), not Tilda's in my mind, and it was hard to choose the image for this colors challenge from a very limited numbers of Maggie's images I own... Well, Tilda is invited to Edwin's Piano concert, and she dressed up & waiting for him to play at the concert hall :-) I stamped music notes randomly in light pink & grey around the white piano. I used my new addition tool; Sakura's clear glaze pen for her pretty black shoes, her rose corsage, her black ribbon & belt, on the black keyboards and the wheel. I found this pen very useful. I would've used Glossy accent for those places but since this pen doesn't give too much dimention, other than GLAZE, I chose this pen for this card. Besides, it's a pen and easy to "glaze" in smaller places too. It's a bit hard to see them on the picture, though. I adhered glitters on her earrings & frills of her dress. I placed red gems on black corner punch which is a bit hard to see on the picture also. I put white stitch lines around the background paper, with Souffle white pen, to match with the white stitched black ribbon. The background paper is Bo Bunny's which Sue Kment sent to me. (luv it, Sue! :-))

Fantastic card, Eve. I always love your "stuff". Great idea, leaving the piano white, very elegant and I'm so glad you found such good use for Noble (I think) Tilda. She's gorgeous. Edwin is going to drool when he sees her!

Hi Eve,
I think you picked the perfect image for your card. I just love Tilda in her gorgeous red evening dress with the black accents and nice ear-rings.
I wonder if she is getting tired of waiting for Edwin?
Your paper is beautiful and those white 'stitches' had me thinking you had used black ribbon with white stitched edges!
Love how you made your background with the music and piano - just delightful :o)
Thanks so much for joining us at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
Hugs, Candy
