Toe Shoes For Ballet ~ Tilda
Greetings everyone. I have had some time to enjoy stamping my favorite Tilda images.
This wonderful Ballet Tilda is a new image for me.
Ballet originated as court dances in Italy, but quickly migrated to France where they futhur developed steps and gave them names. The dances were for royalty, and only for men.
The first female dancers to perform professionally appeared in 1681, however these dancers traditionally wore masks, headresses and heeled shoes. Both men and women wore hoopskirts as well.
Wow that is something to think about. In this case no hoop skirt for Tilda.
I created this card using Tilda in her elegant Ballet Tutu with Toe shoes.
Using a nestie back ground for Tilda and some beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts with green leaves using a MS leaf punch. Colored Tilda with my favorite Copic colors.
Added a fun little heart charm, with pearls, ribbon and decorated stick pins from my stash.
Many thanks for coming by for a visit. Love your encouragements to me. They mean a lot.
Hugs to all.
Happy card creating.
