Chef Tilda at Friday Sketchers 68


A very Happy Friday to everyone!!! I hope that you have had a delightful week and are looking forward to a fun and safe weekend...for those in the US it will be a long weekend too!! Happy Labor Day!!!!

Today is Week 68 at Friday Sketchers which is being hosted by the very talented and lovely Heidi of Norway. As a matter of fact, this is Heidi's last week at Friday Sketchers since she is embarking on a new career path and will begin her educational pursuits in the very near future. With Heidi's leaving we at Friday Sketchers welcome Aud from Norway who is also very talented.

We hope you will join with us this week by visiting the Friday Sketchers blog to see the wonderful cards made by the DT using Heidi's fun and exciting sketch. We would love to see your interpretation of the sketch!! Please link your card in your comment and remember to also link back to Friday Sketchers in your blog post in order to be eligible for the weekly prize. The wonderful prize this week is provided by Ladybug and Friends.

For my sample card I used Bazzill CS for the base, PTI and Prismatics for the matting, and all DP is digital. You will note that in order to accommodate the vertical image I selected I had to turn the sketch on its side. All major panels, both on the front and inside, are stitched. I used a cute Chef Tilda from the new A Little Yummy for Your Tummy Collection which is now available for pre-order at Magnolia-licious. Since I didn't have the darling stove which is now available at Magnolia-licious, I used a Hanglar cabinet to perch little Tilda on. Tilda and the cabinet were stamped twice, colored with Copics, and cut out so they could be more dimensional. I used a bit of Spica on the hardware and Glossy Accents on the glassware on the cabinet. I also added a couple of bands of organza ribbon, a set of mixing spoons, several turquoise primas and a Baked With Love sign. I also added tiny pink button brads to the corners of the image panel and completed the front with a chef's hat charm in the lower left corner. After I took the picture, I added Glossy Accents to her little turquoise Crocs too...lol



The inside is quite simple. On the first panel I repeated the bands of organza ribbons and added bows to each band along with several charms...cookbook, measuring cup, oven mitt. For the jotting panel I merely added a bow and a rolling pin button.

Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening here. I hope you have enjoyed my little Tilda and will let me know what you think of her. If you have questions about anything I have done, please jot me an email and I will try to answer your questions. Please come back real soon...So, until next time...be safe and enjoy your weekend!! Hugs and more hugs to each of you!!!
