I haven't used my Magnolias for a little while and thought I'd dust them off as I've quite missed Tilda!
I've done an unusual (for me) thing here and combined three challenges in the one card!
I hope it works.......! LOL!
has asked that we use 'hot and spicy' colours (...well, I presume they don't mean Tilda in a basque and fishnets anyway...!). So, I'm already out of my comfort zone!
Next, Colour Throwdown have given us a pallete of Tangerine, Olive, Mocha, Saffron and Sky blue so I've used that pallette to the best of my ability!
Finally, but certainly not least, Polkadoodles wants us to use some kind of sewing so I've included cross-stitch in my design.
I enjoyed using my K&Co papers and my Wild Orchid flowers as well as my lovely Dangling Tilda and I think my fishing 'spinner' worked well I actually had another image of Tilda on the back of the main one so when it turns, you still get Tilda!
I am, however, totally in love with Tim Holtz's new Sizzix dies! They are wonderful! They're not only a good size and deep but the 'mat' style ones ( the one behind Tilda is called Baroque) are also magnetic and so I've found you can use the small magnetic aperture dies within them, so altering your mats at the same time! I've also cut all kinds of materials with them including CDs! Marvellous! I can see loads of possibilities with them!
I have another post to make so see you in a minute..........
