Tilda is Ready to Trick or Treat

My card today is using this cute little Indian (Native in Canada) Tilda dressed and ready to go Trick or Treating on Halloween night.

I made the background for her using Art Impressions stamps - Barn Window, Hay Bail and Birds. I had to finish off the barn by drawing in some lines to simulate the boards and I added a little green for the ground around the barn.

I also added a bit of cheese cloth to one side.  I see all the Magnolia blogs using cheese cloth so I thought I would try it too.  White was not quite right for this card so I used a bit of Distress Tea Dye, Aged Mahogany, and Brushed Corduroy to give it some color.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Indian Tilda, Art Impressions Birds, Hay Bail and Barn Window
Paper: BoBunny Garden Girl Collection, Very Vanilla, Kraft black
Markers: The Distress inks mentioned above and Copics - YG63, YR09, YR14, YR16, W3, E08, E11, E13, E23, E25, E27, E33, Y08, Y28, Y93, Y95, C5, C7, C8
Embellishments: SU Twine, Prima Pearls, Cheese Cloth

Challenges for this card:

I will be back later today with my Digital Delights DT card.  See you then!
