In the Pink !

I don't know about you but we are having some real change in weather here in Yorkshire - one minute its frosty , next its sunny , and now its dull and looks like rain ....all in the space of two days ... 
Today id like to share a topper ive made with my new Tilda stamp from the So Special Collection - If your after these gorgeous stamps - karen at charmed has them in . Karen also stocks the netting / mesh that i use on my toppers - i use the gold one as underneth its cream too - best of both colours !

The papers are from "hot of the press" i got them a while ago , but ive only just broken into the pad !
The flourish is a tim holtz die and the cream lace is from charmed also.
The sentiment is a whimsy stampand ive used dry UTEE for some frosting - quite effective i thought .. Its amazing what stash you have that with abit of imagination can be used for 
different effects . I love experimenting with stuff like that !
Tilda is coloured with copics.
I'd like to enter this topper into these challenges .

The crafty pad - something new ( new stamp)

This topper is available on EBAY

Edited for a little heads up !

Today id like to share a topper i made ..
I have'nt used this little tilda in ages ... and thought it time to ink her up.. Ive been like everyone else waiting for the new magnolia collection to come out ..and im so sick that i didnt order the winter club kit ! 
I was too late and Calvin has ordered the spring one for me as a treat ( by the way he has actually blogged !)
So if anyone has a spare winter club kit for sale please email me - id be interested !
anyway , back to the topper , as you can see ive used flower soft and inked and distressed the paper edges. The sentiment is metal.
Ive also added some flower soft to the bloom - i thought it made it look quite pretty .

basic grey cappella. The button is a mother of pearl effect shell.
