Vintage Tilda

The very last thing I should be doing is a card for "fun" but sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do ; )
I've had this Tilda for awhile and can you believe I've never inked her once?? What??
Oh my Lord!! This card has sooo many of my favorite things!! I love  that Melissa Frances frame and have been hording it for way too long!!
Look at it!! It's gorgeous, isn't it??
I think you could just plunk that down on a piece of scrap paper and have a fab card!! I love them!!! 
Here's a close up of just Tilda:
And here's those flowers:
You can see how I make those here.  My desk is still covered with just about every Copic I own!! So sorry, no list!

You've got the perfect layout and the embellishments are fantastic.. including that rose you made! (I've checked out the tutorial twice now!)
Another masterpiece Dana!

Hi Dana, My name is Dana too. I am from St.Louis, Mo and I think we're in the same age group. I found you on YouTube. Great tuts, btw. I hardly ever leave comments cause I hate typing. Yet, your work compelled me to leave a few comments. I had to find your blog. Love it too. So much talent. I was just wondering if we Knew one another as children. I think we may have met once at a Catholic school sister school swap-type thingy. I was paired up with a girl named Dana that had long Blond hair. But, ended up with another (darker blonde haired) Dana. I was in the fourth Grade. Could this be you? My e-mail is dmcgrue3@aol,com
Thank you
OK I'm tired of typing,

Anniebee said...

Oh, Dana! This is absolutely fabulous! I love the rich coloring and the little details are wonderful. I just watched 2 or your 3 flower tutorials on You Tube (they're so much fun!) and I'm going to buy a crimper and some rolls of tulle today so I can start making my own. Those little dudes get expensive when you use a lot of them. Thanks so much for inspiring me once again!
