Totally Tilda Bingo


Over at Totally Tilda this week they are playing Bingo and I have gone with Glitter/Sparkle, Hand Stitching and Flowers.
I have coloured up Tilda with Flower Pot using my Copics and I used the colourless blender to add the spots. I love the way her coat has turned out and it matched my papers beautifully. Even though I haven't been creating alot I have still been looking at lots of blogs and Facebook groups to try and see what others are doing to improve my work. One area in particular is flowers and layers. I am pleased with my flowers but still need to work on the laying and making everything pop. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. After colouring Tilda I handstitched the border and then added some blue stickles to create a frame. I hope you like her.

Until next time


April Showers

It's amazing how much I can get done when I put my mind to it. I made this card last night and I really like the way that it has turned out. I coloured Tilda with Copics and once again raided my stash and challenged myself to use things that I wouldn't normally use. I even made the background using a SU set and some inks.I am entering this card in the Mid-week Magnolia Challenge "April Showers". So here she is

Until next time

It's good to be back

Well it has certainly been a long time between blog posts with lots of highs and lows in between. But I have been doing lots of craft not just making cards but quilting and sewing. I will endeavour to do regular posts and would like to share some of the cards I have been making.
The first is a series of Christmas scenes and I loved doing all the colouring. The images turned out a lot larger than I expected so it doesn't have a lot of embellishment but I am certainly pleased with the result. I would also like to enter it into the MDUC Masking

  The next card is one that I have made for the MDUC Design Team Call. I am really excited about this card and I am thrilled with the way that it has turned out. I have been buying lots of stuff and haven't had a chance to use it. So I went through my stash and have made the following card.

I have coloured Tilda in with my Copics and I had so much fun using my blues. I used a Spellbinders frame to cut out the frame and if you look very carefully in the second photo there are silver swirls behind her. I cut out the tag using a Doo Hicky and used Magnolia crystals and Kaiser flowers to finish it off. I also stamped Tildas wings twice and added another layer so it looked like she was in flight. Sorry about the photos my iPhone is not playing nice and wont allow me to download photos.
I promise it wont be so long in between posts and I am very excited to be back.
Until next time
P.S I will also take some photos of the other projects that are on the go
