King Tilda in paper piecing - DT card for Marvelous Magnolia

Ciao a tutti cari amici blogger,
questo giovedì continua la sfida al Marvelous Magnolia, il tema è ... "Anything goes", eh!! niente di più facile! :)
Per la mia card ho deciso di interrompere le celebrazioni natalizie e sono andata avanti fino ad arrivare a Capodanno... sono arrivata prima? :D
Ho scelto una Tilda  che si chiama "King Tilda" da una collezione del 2011, mi piace tantissimo questa immagine con la sua grande corona e il suo passo saltellante, e per la prima volta ho provata la divertente tecnica del Paper Piecing. Invece della usuale colorazione ho usato la stessa carta decorata della card per il vestito e le scarpe di Tilda. Ho visto questa tecnica nella blogsfera ed ero curiosa di sperimentarla... spero vi piaccia!! :)

Hello dear all blogger friends,
this Thursday  the challenge at Marvelous Magnolia continues, the theme is ... "Anything goes", eh!! nothing simplier! :)
For my card I decided to have a rest from Christmas celebrations, and going on I arrived to the New Year's Day... am I arrived first? :D
I chose a Tilda  from a 2011 collection called "King Tilda", I love so much this image for her big crown and her hop walk, and tried for the first time the funny Paper Piecing tecnique. Instead of usual colouring I used the same patterned paper of the card for Tilda's outfit and shoes. I  saw this tecnique in the blogland and was curios to experiment it... hope you like it!! :)

Il timbro Magnolia usato è "King Tilda", le carte sono di Maya Design dall'ultima collezione "Vintage Autumn Basics", i dies sono: Magnolia Doohickeys “Event Flags”,  Cheery Lynn Nesting Dies “Oval" L-12 and XL-12, , Tim Holtz Stars border and "Ornate Frame".

The Magnolia stamp used is "King Tilda", the papers are Maya Design from the last "Vintage Autumn Basics" Collection, the dies are: Magnolia Doohickeys “Event Flags”,  Cheery Lynn Nesting Dies “Oval" L-12 and XL-12,  Tim Holtz Stars border and "Ornate Frame".

L'immagine in dettaglio / Here is a close up of the image:

E ora altri dettagli... / And a close up of other details...
... i ciondoli che ho scelto sono simboli benauguranti di amore e fortuna, avrei voluto aggiungere la salute ma non ho trovato niente di adatto.
... the charms I chose are the "good wish"simbols of love and fortune, I would have add health but I haven't found nothing suitable.

Ed ora un dettaglio del piatto con il sentiment e un piccolo calendario / And here is a close up of the bottom part with the sentiment and a little calendar.

  7. Cinzia, I absolutely love this New Year card, perhaps the first I've seen to welcome in 2014. Your paper piecing of Tilda's clothing is stunning as are your beautiful embellishments. Unfortunately we are unable to include this gorgeous card in our draw this week as it does not included the digi element required on our Bingo board for this challenge. Mind you, this has been such a treat to see. Best wishes, Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
