Edvin is coloring with watercolor pencils and glued on old music paper background. On left is heart, lock, and keys tied with a leather cord with wooden beads on the end. Wooden bead is also on the flower. Sentiment is from Free digital stamp.

Edges are  cut out with small dies, embosed,  colored with gold ink /see on picture/. Then I glued them around oval.  Tilda as always coloring with coloring pencils and pearl colors. Two butterflies are cut out with Marianne dies; Tilda is glued on them and then with 3D foam on card.

Today I would like to present a gift-wrapping. I've seen similar things on blogs. I added something, do something different and the result was this. I made a few more pictures that you can imagine. For  background I used a paper napkin again. It is first glued to a thicker paper, then can be used as a background paper.

Ribbon is glued on the front side under the tab paper, so it is not visible. Then it is bound back in bow.   Folded paper is on each side and glued inside.
On the front: roses (purchased) from satin ribbon. For branch I used Sizzix dies tree that I cut up into several parts. One is under Tilda's feet. Leafy branch are also broken down into smaller parts.Tilda is coloring with coloring pencils and  pearlescent colors.
The upper part of the front page is designed as a tab. Edges are cut with edge punch.

Stamp: Bon Voyage Collection - Secretive Tilda
Accessories: Sizzix die cut (tree, leaves branch), Far Far Hill paper (inside), paper napkin,  paper bought in art shop,satin ribbon flowers, ribbon, Marianne dies (heart), leaves punch, edge punch, gems.

I will enter this craft in the following Challenges:

Wow a second post today. I like to create  but posting and referencing of all sources...I began to write less and less.  Magnolia Down Under have a Black and White image challenge. I like to dress in those colors but for coloring they are little uninteresting to me. And Totally Tilda Challenge wanted Tilda with non domestic animal so I chose Tilda with lamb.This one came out. Hope you like it. In addition to black and white, there is, of course, grey and red. Tlda is coloring with black and all grey coloring pencils I have. After coloring whole image is painted with silver color.

Stamp: Tilda Carrying Lamb - Hoppy Easter Collection
Sentiment : Ginger's House
Accessories: Marianne Design dies, Sizzix die cut, Adhesive Paper Prints paper, scrapbooking paper bought in art shop.
