Distressed Tilda Challenge 28 - Take 2


I was really unhappy with my first attempt at the distressed Tilda, so I've had another go at distressing Tilda for the Magnolia challenge blog.I had a sudden flash of inspiration and remembered back to my school days, in particular my History lesson, when we had to make a scroll and age it, So, I stamped Tilda with Stazon onto watercolour paper, then, I totally colour washed the whole thing with watered down black coffee, filled in small areas with a stronger coffee, then stuck it under the grill. Matted it onto Shabby Princess papers, embellished it with a bit of ribbon, ric rac, gems and eyelets and used my favourite flourish stamp, from the Autumn leves set. I'm as happy as I'm ever going to be doing distressed Tilda and this is my last attempt.
