Tilda Blowing Bubbles

Hope you have all had a great week. I certainly have had a different one, but a very enjoyable one too,as I have started my new job this week! So lots of changes in store :)
I started this card last weekend and only had time to finish it this afternoon. I dont know what has happened to my mojo this week! But it had certainly disappeared!
At last this afternoon I felt like a play in my craftroom to finish my challenge card for MDUC. This week the challenge is  photo inspiration and is sponsered by Tilda's Town. Go across and have a look at the rest of the DT'S card. As always they are stunning :)

Ive used  Tilda blowing bubbles and painted her with DI's on 300 gsm Watercolour paper.
Again I used my Sizzix Die 'Clock'! (love this), and rolled my own flowers and finished off painting them with 'Picket Fence 'Crackle paint.
Designer Papers are by Pion.

I also used Doo Hickeys Peony and Scalloped Tag.
Challenges I'm entering are

Autumn Gatherings

Hope you are all having a good week!
To share today is another weather inspired project. The weather here in the Uk is certainly turning autumnal, but the colours are stunning. The trees are just beginning to turn colour.

Ive painted 'Tilda with Ponytail' with distress inks Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain.
back again soon x

Rain! Rain! go away!!!

Evening All... or Morning to you lovely down under girlies! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
This weeks Challenge over on MDUC is Karen's sketch and a fab one too. Thankyou Karen.

Its been raining so much here in the UK this week, that's its the only inspiration I could come up with!!!LOL. But I do love this Tilda-'Tilda in the summer rain'. Its also a card for a friend who's been a little under the weather recently!!
I painted with DI'S, but tried to do the 'no lines look'!! but I havent a light enough dye ink pad yet, so used what I had which was Archival Coffee. Though it is definately much softer than normal.

For the flags I used the new Doo-Hickey Die 'Flag and Clouds' and the lettering used Tim's alterations die Typeset. For the shabby rose ribbon, I stained With Distress Victorian Velvet. I'm in love with this stuff!!

Again I did the same with the flowers and painted over with white paint!

And to finish I decorated the back too using Doo Hickeys Vintage Tag and Hearts. All papers are Magnolia.

Bye for now

                  It's a very wet day here in the UK!! My children have gone back to school today and boy it seems quiet!!! Im having a good tidy round and it's actually staying tidy!!!!LOL..Until 3.30pm that is.
Ive had a busy week this week as we (the magnolia DT) have been busy making our projects for the Christmas issue of Magnolia Ink. So while I was in the Christmas mood ,I thought I would make this Christmas tag for this weeks TOMIC challenge.
The Challenge this week is to create your own background paper.
To make my background I used Alcohol Inks Pink Sherbert, Pearl and Gold. I then stamp with Magnolia stamps and embossed with white embossing powder.
Ive used Tilda with Butterfly Jeans. Coloured her with DI's on 300gsm Watercolour paper.

Other stamps used were
Snowy Snowflake Circle, Holly Postmark and Snowflakes.

Did you know it's only 15 weeks 6 days until Christmas!!!!! YIKES
