Tilda with Roses at Friday Sketchers 57
Happy Friday!! I hope that everyone has had a magnificent week and is ready for a fun and enjoyable weekend!! Summer is definitely here in my little corner of the world...whewwwwww... 90 degrees in these mountains where it is supposed to be TEMPERATE!!!!
This week over on Friday Sketchers we are being hosted by the quintessentially talented Bea of Germany who has presented us with this very interesting and fun sketch challenge. I would like to invite you over to our challenge blog to see all of the wonderful sample cards using Bea's sketch. Also please visit each DT member's respective blog to see even greater details of their cards. We would love for you to join us this week in using the sketch to create your own card to share with us over on Friday Sketchers!! Thanks Bea for such a wonderful sketch this week!!!
For my card I used Bazzill CS for the base, PTI Ocean Tides CS for matting, and MME Tiny Dancer DP. I also used PTI Ocean Tides satin and Sweet Blush dotted satin ribbons. I colored Tilda with Bunch of Roses with Copics on Cryogen white and decided that I wanted much more dimension to her...can you believe that??? lol...so I added tiny paper roses and rosebuds to make her bundle of roses. Was I successful in adding some dimension??? LOL All of the flowers used and the pins are from Crafty Feeling in the UK. These were originally white and I airbrushed them with Copics to match the DP...Sorry that the pictures show them as more of a peach color...I just could not get them to photograph correctly. To complete the front I added teal pearls to the corners and a small silver rose charm which I also colored with Copics...
The inside of the card uses coordinating DP from the same MME collection.
This little Tilda with Bunch of Roses has probably become one of my very favorite stamps...along with about 250 more of course!!!! She is a part of the Chasing Butterflies Collection 2009 and is available at Magnolia-licious where you will find tons and tons of her friends and accessory stamps. AND if you become a member of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo site, you will be so pleasantly surprised by all of the SPECIAL offers that Diana gives the members!!!!!
Thank you so much for dropping by to see us -- we love it when you visit and especially love to hear what you think of us!!! May you all have a very safe and enjoyable weekend...AND until the next time, bunches and lots of MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS hugs!!!!
