I'm very excited to share this project with you today. I recycled my Recollections fabric flowers jar to create this little Enchanted Garden for my "Butterfly Tilda". I had a lot of fun with this creation and hope you enjoy it too!
I love recycling and when I bought the flowers I knew I was going to use this beautiful jar in one of my projects.
To create Tilda's Enchanted Garden I wanted to use the beautiful Tilda with 3 flowers but I also wanted her to be a butterfly. Well, I decided to make her own Butterfly Wings! I resized the digital stamp: Butterbies-Vanessablack from Hero Arts to fit Tilda. I colored the wings with my Copics and applied a double coat of Glimmer Mist. Then I covered all the black areas with Black Diamond Stickles. Finally, to give the wings a shiny look, I applied a thick layer of Glossy Accents... and Walla!
I used the following Copic markers to color Tilda: Skin: E11, E00, E000 and R20. Dress and Socks: R89, R85, R83 and R81. Flowers: Y17, Y15, Y11 and Y000. Shoes: E35, E31 and E53. All the little butterflies are colored with Copics too (using the same Reds and Yellows described above).
I decorated the glass with this gorgeous paper from My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found Two collection. The edge punch is from Martha Stewart Crafts and the pearl's strip was actually recycled from an old dress. Tilda's Enchanted Garden flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
This week I'm entering these challenges:
