Circle The Tilda

So the weekend begins. Ahh lovely weekend. Tilda is here to celebrate the weekend with a Simon Says Paper piecing challenge. I’ve made a circle card for one main reason, I had run out of this lovely dark brown cardstock and the only piece I had left was this tiny bit! Bless! So with a little frugal jiggery pockery I managed to make it run to a couple of matts.

But why didn’t I use another colour? Well I had already pieced the Tilda in these yummy Basic Grey papers before I realised I had no cardstock to match – D’oh!


Materials:
Stamp – Magnolia
Ink – VersaFine Onyx black
Colouring – PrismaColor Pencils; Sansodor
Papers – Basic Grey
Usual suspects – scissors, Double-sided tape; silicone glue
Other – Button; fluffy ribbon; Vellum; Nestibilities; Cuttlebug

    That is so cute …beautiful …and I love it. Would never have thought of that wild flower paper and Tilda together. Just realized how you constructed Tilda ….AMAZING.

    Love this Tilda, beautifully coloured, and now I know what paper piecing is! Loved your 10 minute 'masterclass' in PaperCraft essentials too. (Although, it will take me a lot longer!)
