Tilda & Co Challenge Blog

This week's challenge is....

EYE EYE ITS A NATURAL FEELING....

For this week's challenge it's abit of a double up,I Would like to see you
use Eyelets if possible ( if you do not own them, then you can leave that part
out or use brads)Along with anything Natural, Could be fibres, Leaves, Straw,
Twigs, Papers etc as long as it is Natural with Eyelets ( if you have them
)

For my card I have used.... the background paper is a handmade paper with real petals in it. Tilda, the bale of hay and the horse have been paper pieced with the same natural handmade papers. The horse's hooves are paper pieced with petals, which was a bit difficult because they are so delicate and prone to tearing!! So a few choice words were used!! The horse's mane is wool. I used string to wind around the bale and then I used some rafia on the bottom of the card to make it look as if straw had been lain down. To finish off a dragonfly eyelet and three other eyelets have been used.

Stamps:- Magnolia
Papers:- handmade natural papers



This week there are two competitions on the blog. One to choose which DT winner did the best work. On the blog there is a poll for you to vote for the Design team member who did the best on the challenge.
