Tilda goes "shabby chic"

Hi fellow Maggie lovers!! I hope you've had a great couple of weeks! I can hardly believe it's the 4th Tuesday of June already! I have no idea where the month has gone! I do know this, tho...it's time for another fabulous challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!! Whoohoooo!! So...our very popular and talented DT sister, Paola, is our hostess again...and she's chosen a photo of this shabby chic-looking bedroom...well, it looks shabby chic to me! (That's my story and I'm stickin' to it! LOL!)

Gorgeous, huh? So...here's what I came up with for this month's Inspiration Challenge...

Cardstock is from Stampin' Up (Very Vanilla) and DCWV; DPs are from the Gossamer Collection (Memory Box); the deeelish flowers are from Wild Orchids Crafts. And of course the Tilda in Rubber Boots stamp is available from Magnolia-licious, my fave online store for all things Magnolia!!

Here are a couple of side views...I paper-pieced Tilda's dress...and used a generous amount of Tim Holtz's Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint to shabby things up a bit! I like the look alot...but I have to admit,  it seems almost illegal to cover up this gorgeous paper with paint! LOL!

The Seam binding came from The Ribbon Girl...and the pearls are from my stash. Ready for a peek at the inside? You'll notice I used another fun Maggie...this one is called Lying Tilda...she's also from Magnolia-licious! Sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Here's a list of the Copics used to color these little darlins'...
Skin: E21, 00, 000, 0000
Cheeks: R20
Hair: E25, 23, 21, 51, 50, YR21
Blue greens: BG72, 10, 000, 0000, B0000
Pinks: RV34, 32, 00, 000

OK...now pop on over to Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and take a peek at the gorgeous creations by my exceptionally talented DT sistahs!! You won't be disappointed, I promise!! Then get your crafting goodies out and start on your own paper project. Remember...Diana Crick, owner of Magnolia-licious, has generously donated a $25.00 gift voucher for one lucky challenge participant (selected at random). Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I've been up to. Now...go...have fun!! Until next time....
