Tilda & Co Challenge Blog

Today's challenge which is # 24 for the Tilda & Co Challenge Blog is


Serendepity

If you don't have a clue what it is try this link

I used lots of bits and pieces of paper that I had left over from my stash. I glued them randomly onto a piece of card overlapping them all then gold embossed some stamped images all over it. I then cut them into 2"x2" squares but you can cut them to whatever size you want. To make the corners I just cut four diagonals. I then glued the four squares onto some green card. For the background of the card I used a plain white card and cut out a rust piece of card 4cms smaller than the card blank. I embossed the flowers in black ink and clear embossing powder. and adhered it to the card. Next I added the serendepity piece of card with 3D pads. I coloured in the Tilda and chair with prismas and zest it and adhered them to the middle of the card with 3D pads. The "just for you" is a little square greeting that came free with a mag and then I just added the ribbon and hung it with a brad.


Not too sure serendepity is my "thing" but I had fun trying it out.
Stamps:- Magnolia, SU and foam stamps
