Magnolia Tilda Dancing with Stars

Happy Sunday to all in Blogland.  
My project for today features the fabulous image Tilda Dancing with Stars.   
This is my first attempt at watercolour painting and working with Tim Holtz Distress Inks as the main medium and I really enjoyed this.  
I always enjoy working with Tilda images and have coloured another couple of images using this technique and will be showing these soon.

List of materials used to make this project:

Centura Pearl card to make 6" x 6" base and for matting layers.
Wonderful Tilda Dancing with Stars printed onto watercolour paper and coloured with a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks, pens, ink pads and re-inkers.  Lots of fun.  I have also used Stickles and glitter.
Papers and pearls are from my stash 
Die Cuts are from Memory Box, for Swirl. Magnolia Tag hidden behind main image, Memory Box Star,  heart is a Marianne Design Die Cut  and Spellbinder for Tilda.
Flowers and seeds heads are from my stash and are frosted with Stickles and Glitter Snow detail.
Lace, vintage ribbon and weave ribbon are from my stash.
I have made a couple of mini stick pins.

A closer view of this so sweet girl.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my creation.

Sending hugs to you all.

WOW - such a sweet pink and girlie card! I'm not good at combining so many elements, it always seems so messy when I try this style, but you really know how to put everything together!

Hi Laine,
Gorgeous card; so many pretty details to look at! I've always wanted to try colouring with DIs, but I haven't gotten around to it yet, and I presume it'd take a lot of time practicing, so for now I'm sticking to my Copics!
