Mothers Day Tilda

I took the original inspiration for this card from one of last years Magnolia Ink magazines & adapted to my own interpretation. I had been to a Sir Stamp A Lot Tilda class on last Tuesday so had wanted to make a scene on my card.
I started by making my own BP for the bottom of the wall by stamping up a Dimension Fourth stamp with Walnut Stain Distess Ink, so it looks like a brocade wallpaper. Added a fake dado rail by colouring in with Promarkers a small piece of card. The shelf is made the same way. On the shelf I used a Molly Blooms stamp & used shrink plastic to make them small enough to sit on the shelf & added a cutlery charm. The tablecloth effect, I made by using a MS punch Large Daisy & wrapping it around the shelf to give a lacy effect.

Kitchen Sideboard & Baking Tilda with wooden spoon are coloured with Promarkers. The picture I made by cutting up Funky Foam (do you remember that...lol) & mounting the little flowers onto acetate with Glossy Accents & sandwiching the acetate between the funky foam. As it is an easel card, I needed to make something to stop the card falling forward, so I made a rug out of card & pierced the edges & threaded raffia through it to make the fringe.
Added a few flowers to the front edge, along with dewdrops. The sentiment is a Magnolia Doohickey tag die which you can see popping out of the side where I have mounted a housing so the tag can be pulled out & the sentiement read. Unfortunately I did not take a photo of this in full, but as this card is for my sons girlfriend to give to her mum, it is a Mothers Day card for sure.
