Papertake Tilda xxx

I'm back to the pink and green again, and this time there's spots and stripes as well, cos that's our challenge this week over at Papertake Weekly. I think this is a fab challenge cos I do love me spots and stripes.

So I have used pink spots, pink stripes, green spots and green stripes lol xxx The papers are Wild Rose Studio Spring CD and PP - I did a mix and match cos they are my 2 faves.

Tilda is coloured with PMs as you would expect from this predictable pink piggy (and a bit of fantastic alliteration chucked in as well :)


BUT ..............


Not a single blingy bit of Glamour Dust to be seen. Oh the shock!!


So not so predictable after all perhaps ;)o


I thought I would be a bit different and use a bit of Glossy Accents to make her shoes look like welly boots. It was one of those things I wished I'd never started (rather like the diets - note the plural there!!)


I have kept the bottle upright, as it tells you to, and I have cleaned the nozzle every time I have used it - which isn't that often to be fair- but it took so long to come out and I had to keep stabbing it with a pin, and even then it just dripped out. So poor Tilda's boots aren't as smooth as they might be.


Any tips peeps for unclogging the flamin' bottle woudl be gratefully received. Otherwise I am gonna have to buy me a new bottle - grrr!!



Meanwhile, back at the challenge, you'll note that there is a bit of sparkle here and it is courtesy of the old Stickles cos I wanted the middle of the flowers to be raised.
Ooops, I slipped a bit with the old doodling - I swear I wasn't drunk when I did this!! The beautiful blooms are from the one and only Poppicrafts and the pearly brad is a Making Memories one which I got from Hobbycraft. The ribbon is from my local florists warehouse.

The flowers look a bit wonky here but I promise you that it is the camera - I'd tell you if it wasn't lol xxx

Well it is the final of HK tonight - don't care who wins cos I like them both. But it means no more MPW for a while - sigh!!! My evenings will not be the same without him, but at least we can get back to eating 'normal' food again cos I think I've been getting a bit carried away with the cooking malarky.

As a result, I dare not get on the scales at the mo - it isn't exactly a public weighbridge job, I know that, but it's all relative and I feel like a right old bloater. I have muffin tops (not the chocolate chip type sadly) when I wear my jeans, which quite frankly is really not a good look.

So I guess it's back to Slimmers World for me soon - cry cry!!

In just a few more days .....

Have a fab evening and don't forget to pop over and have a look at the other DT girlies wonderful work

Beautiful card Dawny, boots look great and love the papers. I'd love to know how to keep the nozzle from blocking to, gets a bit expensive at times!

Good morning Dawny what a great card hunny. The glossy boots are great. I usually stick a needle down the spout of my GA bottle before i use, and like Kath said if this doesn't work wask out the nozzle.

Have a good day, hugs Linda x

Sammie said...

I love you -you make me hoot with laughter (actually rather less elegant than that, I kind of snort!). I also love your card. I know you love pink and green, but my eyes are confused cos they keep looking for the black, white and pink combo when I fire up your blog!
Love,
Sammie x
