Tilda & Friends ATC Challenge

This week's theme on the Tilda & Friends ATC Challenge is

Shady Lady

The theme this week is to use shades of one main colour, in addition to hair and skin tones or natural backgrounds, after all brown skies and pink grass might look a bit strange! What we want to see is shades of one main colour used for the clothing, embellishments or any patterned papers you plan on using.

Here is my ATC

I've used an older Tilda image and paper pieced her with some left over Forever Friends paper. Her skin and hair were coloured with promarkers. I used a piece of blue bazill card for the background and went over it with a SU wheel called "Forever Flowers" in a darker blue ink. I then tore some more of the FF paper and put a strip down the side and added some gel stickers. I then added a piece of hobbycraft ribbon to the bottom.

If you would like to join in with this week's ATC challenge you will find all the details here.

Oooh, Ilove your paper piecing, Shary! I haven't paper pieced for a while now. Tilda is a perfect image to paper piece with. Easier to cut the paper! LOL!

Your card is beautiful. I love the dp that you used and the color is fabulous!
