Tilda & Friends ATC Challenge

The theme for this week is

Lavender & Lace


This week the theme is Lavender and Lace and we have a pack of Lakeland paper
lace to give away and a selection of stamped images from the new Magnolia Summer
Club collection. The details for making an ATC are on the side bar, just
remember you must include at least one Magnolia stamped image on your ATC. You
can use real lace, paper lace or just a lace effect paper along with a main
Lavender colour scheme, and please leave us a link to your creation so we can
come along and admire your work.


I must admit I'm not too happy with this week's ATC. I will try harder next week I promise, not that I didn't try hard but it just doesn't seem to come together if you know what I mean.
So I used a blank ATC and sponged it all over with different shades of purple chalk inks. I then used a jumbo SU wheel to make the swirl pattern. Tild was coloured in with prismas and zest it and the cut out and adhered with 3D pads. I sponged the piece of lace with purple ink and put it down the side. I then wrapped embroidery thread around the top and bottom and also around some small brads that I had added.
And finally I added the charm which I again sponged with purple ink.

Stamps:- Magnolia & SU jumbo swirl wheel
Inks:- Cats Eyes chalk inks

Now I think the other DT members did a much better job at this so why not go over and have a look then you can make your ATC, leave a comment with your link and then everyone can have a look at your work.
