Wet and Windy!

Taking the wet and windy April weather as inspiration, this week’s challenge on Tilda and Friends is to make an ATC with these elements.

For my ATC, I used a landscape image backing paper, which I attached to the backing card, then stamped Tilda with her umbrella on white vellum and glued this to the backing paper to give a misty look.  I edged all the sides of the ATC with a blue chalk ink pad to hide any glue that might show through the vellum.  I then stamped Tilda on white card and coloured her with Prisma pencils blended with Sansodor.  I cut and attached Tilda and her umbrella to the vellum, and as this is quite a large stamp I had to snip off part of the umbrella so that it would fit on the ATC.  I added a little touch of glitter glue to the splash on Tilda’s hand, and a little frog as an accent. Then I printed the words on my computer and attached them to the vellum.
