Tilda’s Hidden Message

Looking back over this week’s postings I have managed to post for a challenge everyday which I think is a first for me! Ok so one of those posts was a challenge DT make but still not bad going I thought!



Well, hope your day is full of fun.

Kim

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

A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet

It is such a long time since I have shown you some colouring that I thought it would be a great excuse to use my new Mini-Magnolia stamp. This isn’t quite an ATC as it is very slightly longer than it should be but I just loved the edge on my rectangle stamp I didn’t want to cut it short 🙂

Details: I’ve inked up the rectangle stamp with Colorbox chalks, teal and coral pink and then over stamped with the fabulous music script stamp from Artistic Stamper (OK, I ‘fess up it was another new buy from the Olympia show). The roses were made using papers coloured with inks and following the fabulous tutorial from Nancy at Scraps and Inks.


The image was coloured with a mix of Colorbox chalk inks and Koh-I-Noor watercolours.


I used Shimmerz Angel Wings paint to highlight the wings and 3D-glue to accent the bee body and the little rose.


Materials:
Stamps – Magnolia Mini; Artistic Stamper Music Script; Whispers Rectangle; Stamps Away Bee
Inks – VersaFine Onyx Black
Colouring – Koh-I-Noor Watercolours; Colorbox Chalks

Tilda Challenge

Here is one for this week’s Tilda and Co. challenge, which has a sketch for us all to have a go at. I’ve used a complete mix of papers here and the ribbon with buckle is from the Oh La La kit by Designs by Krista.

I wanted some dimension and texture in this one so the underlying oval is scrunched up and inked. The Papermania exquisite paper has been glitter glued to highlight the flourishes and then attached to the background with double-sided tape in the centre rather than the edges so that they can lift away from the purple background. Each layer has been edged with ink and then silicon glued to lift it just a little.



Materials:
Stamp – Tilda from Magnolia; Clear stamps
Ink – Versafine Black; Distress ink Walnut stain, tattered rose, tea.
Papers – Papermania Exquisite; K and Co Life’s Journey; Dark purple is from an unknown supplier
Colouring – Derwent colour pencils; Twinkies H2Os
Ribbon – Designs by Krista
Other – Stickles Glitter glue
