Well everyone knows how much I loves my Sugars and these stamps are used on 99% of my cards, but every now and again I think it's good to try something different.
I needed to make a card for my very sweet friend Gayle's special BIG birthday, and I was pretty sure she would be expecting a card made with my mostest favouritest stamp ever...Pippi Longsocks so I searched through blogland to see if any other rubber could possibly tempt me.
And here is my first - and possibly last - Tilda.
The image is Summer Flower Tilda.
I've never coloured a Tilda before so it did take quite some time! She's coloured with a mix of DI re-inkers and DI markers. I have been eyeing up the markers for a while, but just hadn't enough money to buy myself a set, and I'm certainly nowhere near famous enough for Mr Holtz to donate any my way - though should anyone know Mr Holtz personally would you please ask him if the limited edition colours will be made available in the markers too :)
Since no-one was going to 'loan' me a set, and I had no luck winning any then I had to call on my knight in shining armour, who very kindly bought me them...thank you lovely husband of mine ♥♥♥
The divine papers are Inkido-Forever Collection (don't sell them all Astrid and Kees...I need MORE)
As always, the embellishments are meagre...I just can't add them so they look nice and not a pile of junk!
I did actually buy another Tilda, so there might possibly be a second stamp used in the future!
A-HA! I never enter any challenges as I always seem to be too late but I think I've found a couple I'm eligible to enter!
Simon Says Challenge asks for Clean and Simple...I'm always very simple :)
Die-ing For A Challenge asks for Dies...I've use the MFT butterfly and the Magnolia Heart Flourish.
Tilda Town is Anything Goes.
Bunny Zoe's Monthly Challenge is also Anything Goes, and I did buy them from Nikki.
Sweet Stampin' is Faeries and Angels.
Whoopee!! I've only ever entered one challenge before, when I first started my blog, and I got my legs slapped for not linking it correctly (as I didn't know how to!) Let's hope I've done these right!
