Tilda with Wine and Basket for Friday Sketchers 66
Happy Saturday Morning Everyone!!! I hope you all had a magnificent week and are just starting a fun and enjoyable weekend.
Since I had a Magnolia-licious Halloween Blog Hop yesterday, I decided to save my Friday Sketchers DT Sample Card for Week 66 to show you today!! If you did not visit me yesterday, please notice my SWEET STUFF in the right corner and visit my yesterday's blog also for a chance to win....Hugs!!!
This weeks's Friday Sketchers is hosted by the magnificently talented Carole of England who has given us a very challenging and fun sketch to use this week. I hope you will take the time to visit Friday Sketchers blog and then will visit each of the DT's blogs to see their fantastic sample cards. Please play along with us this week using Carole's sketch, include your blog posting in your comment, and be sure to link Friday Sketchers in your posting in order to be eligible to win the great prize offered by Simon Says Stamp.
For my card, I used Bazzill CS for the base, Bazzill and PTI CS for the matting and a lovely set of digital papers. I also used Tilda with Wine and Basket which is now available at Magnolia-licious. I stitched every single solitary double-matted panel before putting the card together...lol...For the front of the card I stamped Tilda twice on Cryogen White, colored her with Copics, and cut her out. For the circle panel using Carole's sketch I used a Spellbinders Lattice Shapabilities Pendant and I can tell you it was a PAIN!!! I must be doing something wrong because it took me 4 tries to get the paper out of the die without tearing it...and even this one has a tiny tear behind Tilda's foot!!! I don't know if I will ever try this one again unless someone gives me instruction and advice!!!! I then propped Tilda up on dimensional tape. To satisfy the 5 embellishment requirement I decided that Little Tilda carrying that wine bottle needed to be amidst the grape vines...lol so I proceeded to make my own grape clusters, grape leaves and vine...lol...I used the Prima Center Kisses Floral Stamens and colored them with shades of purple Copics for the bunches of grapes, cut the leaves from larger mulberry leaves to KINDA resemble grape leaves, and colored plain old kitchen twine with green Copics for the vine. To finish the front of the card I added half-pearls colored with Copics to each corner and added some sparkle to the leaves with a bit of Evergreen Shimmerz.
The inside of the card is very simple but I did stitch every double matted panel. On the first page I added a bit of purple and green organza ribbon and propped the center panel up on dimensional tape. For the jotting panel I added a bunch of "grape leaves" and a tiny bottle of wine charm tied with DMC floss.
Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening here!! I love and appreciate your visits and especially enjoy hearing from you. I hope you will join us this week at Friday Sketchers. Have a magnificent weekend...Big hugs!!!!
