Angel Tilda in DiStReSs

Hi everyone, happy saturday evening!

Just wanted to share this piece that I put together the other evening.
This new collection is awesome right?
Tilda has been watercoloured with distress inks. On the matt I have used versafine watermark and added some perfect pearls. I tried to pic the effect as best I could but this is all im afraid.
The sparkly leaf is from a bunch i picked up at my last HC S/Spree and I added some gimmer mist as they were just plain white,I love to get white as its so versatile.
I took the new magnolia snowflake stamps and again stamped them in V.watermark and added the perfect pearls.
Added some pretty eucalyptus stickles OMG this colour is way to beaut.
Wooden crown alterable I left O naturaelle added some small bling and a pretty vintage angel charm which can be removed and added to a charm bracelet if wanted. Super cool eh :)
The word 'Christmas' has been cut from my PI and inked.

Lastly the large tag, has also been distress. I stamped some leafy flourishes in V.sepia and then glimmer misted in sea burst (I think) Again same thing with the snowflakes. Added some organza.

Overall I am pleased with how she completed.
Thanks for looking all. Hope you leave a comment so I can come see you too! :)
