Asian influence...

I am so happy that my Make the Cut still works with my Cricut and ecstatic about MTC's partnership with Lettering Delights.  I catch sets on sale for pennies and love the way they cut.  The set I used here is Landmarks and it's perfect with all the nationality Tildas.  There's the Sydney Opera House for Aussie Tilda, the Eiffel Tower for Parisian Tilda, the Taj Mahal for Indian Tilda.  I can't wait to use them all.  I cut the arch out twice, once in black and once in purple and offset them for a shadow effect.  Then I rubbed a little metallic old gold on the purple.  I didn't add a lot of embellishments because the Washi paper was so gorgeous, I didn't want to cover it up.  The arch was popped up on foam dots; Tilda was popped up on the arch.  The gold glitter dots are from Recollections at Michaels.

  1. Aw this is lovely I havent seen this tilda before and shes so cute xxx

  2. I finally see something I'm familiar with---the Asian paper. I think I have some for those origami moods that I get into once in awhile. Sweet card. And the verse on the shoe was perfect for the wife. Wish I had thought to do the same for my best condo friend/neighbor.
