Raining Down Love

Raining Down Love - For today's card I used this sweet little Tilda image. She has been in my stash for over a year, but this is the first time that I have inked her. I colored Tilda with Copics and added Stickles to her bodice and the lace pattern on the umbrella. I also added some Diamond Glaze to her boots.

Our challenge at Craft Your Days Away is stitching. This is faux stitching and not real stitching.I punched holes on the image with a paper piercer and then drew the lines using a fine tip pen and a ruler.

My DP is K & Company Ancestry. I love the depth of the creams and browns and I adore the blue-green in it. I inked everything with Ranger's Tea Dye distress inks.
My flowers are recycled. I wore them in my hair for my daughters wedding. I added a double bow that was tied with my Bow Easy. I love adding ribbon to cards and if you don't have a Bow Easy I highly recommend one. They are available at our sponsor, Pretty Little Ribbon Shoppe.

I thought it would be fun to have it raining hearts from a heart shaped cloud. The scrolled heart was cut using my Cricut and the Straight from the Nest cartridge. The tiny hearts were punched.
