Indian Tilda at Divas By Design

This weeks challenge over at Divas is to be inspired by a movie & is sponsored by Live & Love Crafts
As it seems ages since I made a card with Tilda, I decided to use Indian Tilda, I have never used her before, so thought it was time to get her out of the packet!! I figured she would go well with The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movie which has been in the cinemas not that long ago & is set in India.
I coloured Tilda with my Prisma pencils & mounted onto black card, which I have dabbed with orange acrylic paint. The papers (chosen for their orange colour) are from my drawer, so no idea who or what they are. All the edges are heat embossed & distressed. If you have seen the film you will know that the hotel is really shabby, so I wanted to try & create that on the card. Added a postcard stamp from Papermania & added letters which are from my stash drawer. The peg, I heat embossed using black sparkle embossing powder.. Added ribbon & jewels from stash, together with a flower that sort of resembles a marigold lol.
So theres my card inspired by a movie, my fellow teamies have made some gorgeous cards, so dont forget to pop over & see what they have made too.
Entering into the following challenges
Marvelous Magnolias Bling It On
Pink Gem Distress It
Totally Tilda Heat Embossing

Hi Dawn - what a great card. Love the colour scheme which is perfect for an Indian image as the colours you've used remind of a range of spices! Thanks for joining us at Lexi's Creations this time.
