Tilda's Town Challenge #123 FAF or CAL

Good Saturday Morning To You My Crafty Friends!

Today is the start of another wonderful challenge over at the Tilda's Town Challenge Blog, and this week we challenge you to make something Frilly and Fancy or Clean and Layered.  One lucky winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to Tilda’s Town online Magnolia store.  Pop on over and check out the gorgeous creations my teammies have created for your inspiration.

For this card I used Tilda with Love Cake from the Magnolia 2012 With Love collection.  Don't you just love her checkered pants!?  The Bowl is cut from an old Sizzix die that I haven't used in ages.  The flower is cut using Spellbinders/Heartfelt Creations dies and stamped with Versa Mark with the coordinating Heartfelt Creations Stamp, then sprinkled with Holographic embossing glitter.  The large photo corner is by QuicKutz.

I typed this sweet little recipe on my computer and then free handed the outline.  I put real sugar in the little glass jar/charm.  I tried to tie a double bow with the antique seam binding but could not get my fingers to work the way they were supposed to.  If you have any tips on making double and triple bows, please let me know...

Another angle to show the embossing glitter on the flower.

Tilda's Town Challenge #121 - Anything Fall


Actually, I love color in general but I do lean toward bold, fall colors.  My living room and kitchen are painted pumpkin butter, the couch is cranberry red, the recliners are a kind of mossy green and I have bold blue, deep red, gold, brown and orange accents.  I even have a large, red cabinet in the kitchen that holds my cookbooks.  So pretty much all of the colors in my card are in my main living areas.  LOL!
This is Tilda with Cock-A-Doodle-Doo The Rooster.  I have colored this pair with Copic markers, shaded and highlighted with colored pencils and inked everything with Distress Inks.  I cut the cornstalk and fence with the Cricut, the doily, pumpkins, corn and "welcome" are QuicKutz and the grass is a punch by Fiskars.

 Copics used:  Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R20  Hair - E33, E35, E37, E50  Dress - BG10, BG72, BG75, BG78, Y0000, Y11, Y13, Y15  Chicken - YR21, YR24, R20, R22, R24, R29, Y21, Y28  Seed Bag - Colored Pencils  Seed - Y15, Y21, Y28, E31

This is Calista Flockheart, egg layer extraordinaire and greeting card model.  She's looking very shabby at the moment with molting season upon us but it was her coloring that I wanted to mimic for the image.  Molly Hatchit is the shy one hiding behind her.  She will have her chance to model soon.  :)
