Something Different (with lots of pics!)

Hi everyone, well as the title suggested i've created something a little different.... perfect for this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge!! I'm also enetering it into this weeks A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge where the thme if 3-D :D Well, i've never gone O.T.T on my cards but i really wanted to make a box to complement a card i made yesterday that i was very proud of. It's using one of the cute pirate Tilda's one of blogging friends sent to me. For a change, i coloured her with pencils and only used promarkers for the skin tones! And i used colours i defiantly wouldn't use but there's so many combo's in my BG Sugar Rush pad i can experiment! Sorry for the amount of pics! :D

This is the card on it's own:

I kept the layout quite simple, only adding the odd pearls and bow on the side. And here's a close-up of how i've coloured Tilda: she looks so sweet! :D I've coloured her with pencils for a change and only used my usual of promarkers for the skin tones.

And this is the box on it's own, i forgot the exact measurements but next time i make one I'll write it down! They're really quite simple! xx

And that's it! Sorry for all teh pictures but the weather was glorious and i thought i might as well get a few good ones while i'm out there lol!! :D

Thanks for visiting me, i really appreciate it! Please leave a comment if you have time?? :D

Older Tilda...

Hello everyone, i can't believe how good the weather has been this last week!! :D I made this card on Saturday and it was so sunnny i managed to get a really good picture outside! I've been playing around with some of the older Magnolia images Becky sent me, i thought this one was so cute and as much as i love the latest ranges i think everyone neglects their older stamps.
I'm entering my card into a few challenges as usual:
  1. ABC- Sparkle
  2. Just Magnolia- Anything Goes
  3. Allsorts- Picture Inspiration
  4. BG- Blue, Gold + White (i've added pink too so if i don't qualify i understand!)
  5. SSD- Girlie
  6. OCC- Blossoms
All i needed to finish was some yummy ribbon i purchased from Paris, the essential cluster of WOC roses, a few pins from my local Craft Shop Lora Crafts and a sentiment. Well that's all, thanks for visiting and for any comments you leave- i appreciate your feedback x
