Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge

The seasons theme on the Tilda and Friends ATC challenge is now over and we have some exciting news for you this week .......

After discussing with Tilda and Friends we have decided to invite along some of
the other characters you may have in your stamping box! We all love Tilda, but
realise that sometimes it can be refreshing to use a different stamp now and
then on our ATCs, so from now on please feel free to use other images that
feature the cute round faces we have come to love. Suggestions would be the
Scandinavian family of Hanglar and Stanglar that are soon to be available to us
in the UK at Funky Kits or
perhaps the Sugar Nellie Hamish and Maggie or Luca and Nellie. Or you could use
one of the Cuddly
people stamps (not the animals or bears though, unless that is the
theme one week) or some of the cute people from Sprial Whisper, Precious Moments,
or the Country
Girls from Alota stamps
. We do not want to see any Sarah Kay, Sweet Ebony or
similar styles as although we love these images, they are more realistic in
design and there are already several blogs featuring them. So please keep to the
cute round faces and take your inspiration each week from the design team's

To make my ATC I've used some material as the background. It's a sheer material (not sure how to describe it) with bright daisies on it. My MIL bought it over here in Germany when she visited last and cut a piece off for me. The image is from Country Girls of Alota stamps as is the sentiment. I love colouring in the country girls as there are nice big spaces. I've used promarkers to colour her in and a white signo gel pen for the highlights. Just added a spotty orange ribbon and there it is. I've been using a lot of orange just lately haven't I? Must be trying to keep Summer colours going! I think I will make this ATC into a topper for a card.

Stamps:- Country Girls - Alota stamps.

So now there are lots of other stamps you can choose why not have a go at an ATC, if even you've never done one before it's sooo easy and you can always use them as toppers for a card.

Andrea is on the Magnolia DT and this week she is giving away a great prize to one lucky winner, a brand new Cross Stitch Tilda , some images, ribbons and blooms. How can you resist all that??
