Magical Tilda with Wand at Friday Sketchers #102 and WINNER!!
A very happy Friday to you!! I hope you have had a delightful week and are prepared for an especially wonderful weekend. I know that I am thrilled to see this weekend approach and am looking forward to a splendid upcoming week--this is my week prior to the 5th out of 6 chemotherapies so I am going to have a blast of a week!!!! Wanna join me??
Today is Week 102 at Friday Sketchers and we are being hosted by the extremely talented Tanja of Germany who has presented us with a very challenging and fun sketch. I would love for you to join with us this week and show us your interpretation of Tanja's exciting sketch. You will find a very exciting prize this week from The Stamp Shoppe.
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, SU and PTI for all matting, and all of the DT is from my very favorite Paperblock "Victorian Romance - Pastels" by CreaMotion in the Netherlands and which is no longer available, I am sorry to say. All panels were machine stitched. Magical Tilda with Wand was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. I also used Stickles on the wand and on the dress accents for sparkle. This Tilda is from Magnolia-licious although she is not available in the store at the moment. I'm sure Diana will try to get her for you if you send her a quick email. Poor little Tilda has not learned how to put her shoes on the right feet yet....lol...Have you noticed that oftentimes??? Too cute!!!! The pink paper doily was used for the circular element. I used a re-embroidered lace for the horizontal and threaded some PTI grosgrain through it, adding a side flat bow to the right side. All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also added some star pins to the upper floral treatment, adding MS glitter to the larger one. To finish the front I used pale green half-pearls to soften corners.
For the inside, both background panels were machine stitched. The first panel only has a horizontal of the ribbon with flat bow. For the jotting panel I used another pink paper doily and a couple of Nesties for the message. I added another flat bow and rather than use the Magic Wand, I decided for interest and dimension, I would make my own wand based upon the Maggie stamp available at Magnolia-licious. What do you think??
I hope you like my little creation and will visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls and see what magnificent creations they have for you:
Aud, Bea, Carole, Claudia, Inge, Janneke, Jeanette, Tanja
As many of you know, last week was the Two-Year Anniversary of Friday Sketchers so each of the DT members had a special Sweet Stuff. My sincere thanks to everyone who used my sketch during the week and to everyone who left such sweet and kind comments for me. As I said, every participant who left a comment AND made a card would receive an extra chance for my Sweet Stuff...so......
The WINNER of My FS Sweet Stuff is.....
