Tilda & Co Challenge

This week's challenge on the Tilda & Co challenge blog is a sketch.


Here is the sketch

And here is my card.
The two layers underneath Tilda have been cut with nestabilities. The white one was then sponge inked. I then added a little white pen highlight. Tilda was stamped and cut out. I paper pieced Tilda's dress and boots and also the suitcases. Although I coloured in the flowers on the suitcase with promarkers. The suitcase stamp is from Alota.I also coloured the other "bits" on Tilda with promarkers too. She was then adhered with foam pads. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy and I stamped that onto a word window punch shape. The square again was done in the same way as the ovals. I then added a tab to the right hand side and covered with the same papers adding a little blue gem. Oh forgot to say I rounded the corners of the card and the square layers with a corner rounder.

Papers:- MOD

Stamps:- Magnolia & Alota

Sentiment:- Whiff of Joy

It's a great sketch this week so why not have a go? The DT's work is stunning as usual so you could go and get some inspiration from them.

Shary, wow, you sure do know how to make the most of a sketch! I have never seen anyone decorate the suitcase like that, most people just color it in, very original on your part! Must be why they chose you as a DT member! I love checking out your blog, you inspire me everytime! I just wish I had some of those cute Magnolia stamps, I live in the USA and I have not been able to find them anywhere, I even went to a scrapstore and they had never even heard of Sugar Nellie's, Magnolia's or Whiff of Joy! Keep on creating, Leslie
