Twisted WOYWW

Continuing from yesterday, here is my second attempt at the masked background with silhouette stamping. Did I say yesterday that I used the instructions from a Lavinia advertorial in Craft Stamper magazine? Well anyway that's where the how to came from, except I blended inks rather than using a brayer (I have yet to beat my brayer into submission).
I decided to try another technique new to me with this one and turn it into a twisted easel card.
I'm not going to attempt instructions. Pop over to Bev's blog she has set out all the details there.

Tilda is sitting in her garden in the moonlight, I think. I found this ancient little stamp for the sentiment.
I've sat Tilda on a little folding scalloped circle, so that the whole thing will still fold flat, and decorated her seat to match the background.

So that's the twisted bit, now on to today's WOYWW (pop to Julia's blog to play along or see what on earth I'm on about). Here's my work in progress.
Just got to put it all together now.
