Tilda & Co

The theme on the Tilda & Co Challenge Blog this week is


( Tilda & Edwin with their Hands does not count) we would love you to
produce some work showing “ hands”
Some ideas are: Hand charms, Hand Shaped
Chipboard, Hand Shaped Card, Clock Hands, the possibilities are endless.

Here's my card, I struggled a bit this week with the theme, but came up with clock hands in the end. I used MM papers for this one. First I clear embossed the brown paper with a stop watch and then I clear embossed the mustard coloured paper with a large background clock stamp that I had. I clear embossed one of the stop watches onto some turquoise paper and cut it out to add it as an embellie. The suitcases were paper pieced onto some turquoise paper and I then used my promarkers to colour in the flowers and hinges. The suitcases are from Alota stamps. They are really versatile as they are just the right size to go with your "character" stamps. I paper pieced Tilda too using the same papers. Tilda, suitcases and the stopwatch were adhered with 3D pads to give some dimension. To finnish off I added a turquoise ribbon and some brads.

Stamps: Magnolia & Alota
Papers: Making Memories

I ran out of time this week (kids & DH still off for the Summer holds), but some of the DT made two items for the challenge. To see all their lovely work and get some inspiration you can go over to the blog and have a look here

It was a terribly hard challenge this week, wasn't it? I really like the colours on this and a clock was the only thing I could think of. I love the paper pieced suitcases, wouldn't mind a real life one of those.
