Not So Tildalicious :(

image copy

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK and not too cold again.

The snow hasn't arrived here as yet but it is still very cold today.

Well I tried to be a bit clever with the lovely sketch that the sweetness that is our very own Donalda did for us this week over at the Just Magnolia challenge and sadly it didn’t quite work out the way I wanted it to.

Oh well, you can’t win them all I guess!!


So this is Donalda’s fab sketch …..

… and here is what I did with it.

I had the idea to use a different fold which you can see ….

… here.

You can also see where I didn't stick the front panel down very well.

Ooops, slap dash Miss ‘warts and all’ Piggy!!!!

Like the lime and lilac colour palette, bows and bells go quite nicely together don’t you think?

And I stuck one bloom onto the image panel …


… and two on the inside of the card, the idea being that when it’s shut, the three blooms fit together as one arrangement if that makes sense.

So that’s what I did and I have to say that I am not at all happy with how it turned out.  I don’t know if it’s because lately I have been embellishing for dear life and this by comparison is quite plain.

Possibly it is.

So anyway I thought I’d do the shopping / info bit at the end again so here we go -

Image coloured with Copics in these colours -

Skin: E00, E221, R11, R20. Hair: E42, E50. Clothes: BV0000, BV02, BV12, C00, C1, YG0000, YG01, YG03

The papers are Pink PetticoatGingham (I know. but it’s sooo pretty lol!!!) and Vintage Rose.  The pretty organza ribbon and all the blooms are Wild Orchid Crafts including the brand new Mixed Purple/White Tone Bloom Set. Finally the Copics and Tilda Lace die are from Dies To Die For.

So that’s me done for today. I may be back tomorrow if time permits but as her ladyship is in residence this evening, time might run away with me. But have a great weekend, stay warm and cosy  and I’ll see you soon.

Hugs to all xxx
