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!

Tilda and Friends Recipe

I’m sorry that my ATC is a little late today. I tried to load it onto the Tilda and Friends blog last night, but Blogger didn’t want to cooperate!

The theme this week is a recipe – 1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellishments – simples!  The image is a Greetings Farm fairy stamp, which I’ve coloured with Promarkers, with a touch of glitter on her wings, dress and also around the text, although this is hardly noticeable in the photo.  The papers are by Crafts-Too, and embellies were a magazine freebie. I made the words on the computer.

Thanks for popping in to have a peep at my cards; it is much appreciated.

Tilda and Friends – No People!

This week  Tilda and Friends challenge you NOT to use any people on your ATC!  I’ve used an adorable little monkey image from C.C. Designs on my card, coloured, as usual, with Promarkers. The circles and scalloped circles are made with Nestibilities, and paper and brads are from my stash. Why not get out your cute animals, birds or bees stamps, and come and make an ATC with us this week?!

Happy Independence Day!

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.

Here Comes Summer!

The theme at Tilda and Friends this week is ‘Summer Fun’, and on my ATC I’ve chosen to use a sweet Hanglar & Stanglar image of a girl enjoying a picnic.  I used my Promarkers to colour her, and the backing card has been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, then gently sanded to show off the pattern a little more. I edged the card with a dark pink ink pad to define it a little. The daisy brads are from my stash, and the text was made on the computer. Do take a moment to visit the challenge blog and the other DT members, who have some gorgeous creations to show you. The links are on my sidebar.  Thanks for looking, and for your comments, which I very much appreciate.

A Walk in the Woods

This week’s theme at Tilda and Friends is to use more than one character on your ATC.  I decided to use Tilda and Edwin from the Fall 2008 stamp kit, as it’s been a while since I inked up these little cuties.  They are, of course, coloured with Promarkers.  I used an HOTP background paper in autumn colours, and added punched leaves, in brown and copper, to complete the little scene.  Why not pop over to the challenge blog and see what the other DT girls have to show you?

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?!

May Flowers

‘April Showers Bring May Flowers’, and as we are now in the merry month of May, the theme at Tilda and Friends this week is ‘May Flowers’.  My ATC features the lovely Tilda holding a bouquet of flowers, which I believe to be Ranunculus, as it’s far too early for roses in the UK!  Tilda was coloured with Promarkers as usual. The gorgeous backing paper is by Prima, and I’ve edged it with a pink ink pad to soften it a little.  The pink grosgrain is from my stash, as is the brad. The words are from a stamp, but I’m unable to tell you which company makes it, as it was an image sent to me. Do come and join our ATC challenge this week; we would love to see what flowery delights you come up with!


That’s Torn It!

This week’s theme at Tilda and Friends is to add something torn to your ATC.  I’ve used a cute Hanglar & Stanglar image on mine, and he is coloured with Ranger Distress Inks for a change.  The papers are scraps left over from other projects, and the brads are from HOTP.  I hope you’ll come and join our challenge this week.  There are some fab examples by the other DT members to inspire you over on the Tilda and Friends blog.
