Totally Tilda Challenge ~ 88.

Good Morning my lovelies.

Today I have a card to share for the new challenge at Totally Tilda...which means I am delighted to still be on the team....thank you very much!
 We also have a new addition...the amazingly talented and super sweet Linda.

So...the theme for the new challenge is masking.
Now I know this might shock you, but I have done masking before. Yessiree I have!

I spent ages searching through all my stamps, because although I have lots of (and then some)  images, I don't buy the accessory stamps simply because I don't use them.
But I did find one background stamp!

I'm not quite sure what I was thinking here!!

Now I look at it I can't help but wonder why Tilda would be stood in front of a barbed wire fence?
I'm thinking she nipped over the fence and into the meadow to pick a flower, and then jumped back over quickly in the hope that no-one had seen her...only it looks like she got her knickers caught on the barbed wire and now she's desperately trying to free herself whilst still looking all sweet and innocent!

Card details:
The colouring is done with DI markers.
The papers are Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics.
A sentiment from Whimsy, a Doo Hickey swirl, a couple of punched flowers and a smattering of pearls.

  1. Oh Elaine you're so fun! I love to read your post. :)
    I haven't made masking yet but I have to do something. Your card is beautiful as always. Love your masking together with sentiment. This swirl is gorgeous.
    Big hug to you,

  2. Another totally beautiful card Elaine! I love how the two flowers match - great attention to detail hun, Jo x

  3. This is so sweet, yet so funny when you mention the barbed wire. I have to email you a story you will enjoy and hope Emma had a wonderful birthday!

  4. Hahaha, I was just thinking how I loved your backround image, and when I read your interpretation of it I laughed so hard! I think she looks like she is taking a stroll down a country road, and just picked a flower by the side of the road. :)

    Fantastic coloring of course, I am forever in awe of how you get such depth and still such light images. Amazing work. :)

    Happy birthday to Emma, such a beautiful girl!

    Lots of hugs, Anne.

  5. What a beautiful card and congrats with Emma.

    Hugs, AStrid.

  6. Oh I was laughing Elaine - the scenario you describe is just so funny but describes the image perfectly too. Anyuhow that isn't what I first saw - my eyes couldn't help but look at the lovely way you coloured the flower she (stole) picked & echoed it with your little floral embellishment.

  9. A gorgeous girly card & I think little miss Tilda did exactly like you said. It's your story & I like it !!! She certainly is precious & innocent isn't she. Beautifully colored as always. Your sweet Emma is a lovely young woman ... Thank you for sharing.
    Hugs, Janie

  10. so beautiful elaine.stunning design and i love the pretty colours and tilda and your colouring is fabulous. :D

    xx coops xx

  11. Hi Elaine, tied up or not she looks gorgeous which is due to your lovely colouring of course. The fence looks cute and I love that wee flower that you use, it looks so good with that swirl. I can remember getting the knickers stuck on barbed wire many a time when we were kids, always climbing through fences when we shouldn't have of course. My generation are so lucky to have all these innocent enjoyable memories, a thing of the past. Happy birthday to Emma, she's a beautiful young girl. Hope your weekend weather has been better than ours, rain and more rain!...Trish

  12. stunning once again Elaine, love how you colour xx

  13. Hey Elaine,
    your card is amazing. It's crazy: When I try to make a card without so many embellisments as you do my cards always looks naked. I don't understand this phenomen *LOL*
    I love your card <3
