Life’s a Beach

This week’s theme at Tilda and Friends is ‘Life’s a Beach’, and here is my ATC. I have used 3 Magnolia stamps, which were masked, then stamped in layers to make the little scene. The image is coloured with Promarkers, with a touch of Stickles glitter glue on Tilda’s wings and the water ripples, and I’ve  added the computer-generated text to the scene. Come and join us in our challenge this week, and have some fun on the beach, despite the dreadful weather that we are having in the UK at the moment!

We are celebrating US Independence Day at Tilda and Friends, with a theme of ‘The 4th of July’ for our challenge this week.

Here is my ATC, using Sailor Tilda, who is coloured with Promarkers. All the other elements on the card were freebies from magazines, except for the text, which was made on the computer. Come and join in the celebration and make a patriotic ATC with us!

3D at Tilda and Friends

This week’s challenge at Tilda and Friends is to make your ATC with a 3D element.  Here is my effort, using an ‘oldie’ Tilda from last summer.  I’ve coloured her with Promarkers, and added a touch of glitter to her wings.  I’ve  used foam squares on the back of the image to make Tilda stand out from the background. The backing paper is DCWV, and it’s also glittered, which adds more texture to the card.  I placed a piece of torn pink handmade paper at the side, then added some flowers and alphabet beads for extra dimension.

Make Your Own Background

This week’s challenge at Tilda and Friends is to make your own background for your ATC. For me, this meant a chance to mess about with inks and stamps!  I made a rather ‘grungy’ background by ‘smooshing’ some chalk inkpads onto some yellow lined paper.  I used an Autumn Leaves scroll stamp on the corners, using a pink, then black, inkpad. Then I used a floral stamp, which was a freebie from a scrapping magazine, to stamp all over my ATC very gently, so that it would fade into the background.  The studious Tilda was coloured with Promarkers, and added to the ATC with some foam squares to give some dimension.  The fibre embellishment and card button are from my stash.  Do check out the Tilda and Friends blog to see what the rest of the DT have made with this challenge, and then why not have a go yourself?!
