And We're Off!

Hi everyone,

At last the first ever Tilda's Town Challenges, and for our first week Anything Goes. As we're such a big DT we've been split into two teams,

Team A:

Team B:

Here's my card,

I've had this Tim Holtz on the edge die for ages and I've only just got round to using it, but I will be using it a lot more often-I'm so pleased at how it has turned out. I've used Magnolia papers from the latest release, and inked the edges up with Walnut Stain distress ink.
The inside has been decorated to coordinate with the front.

 Here's what the card looks like closed. There's a doohickey tag behind the picture. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the lace is from the Ribbon Girl.

Here's the inside, I've used a Stempelglede stamp and used my distress ink markers to colour it in before I stamped it.

I've coloured Tilda With Winding Flowers in with Distress Ink Markers, I'm loving these now. Although I find the frayed burlap is a touch on the green side so I use my reinkers for this for her hair. I've covered the flowers on glamour dust and gold stickles, I've also used liquid pearls.

I'm entering this into the anything goes challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge.
Pop over to Tilda's Town Challenges and have a look at the gorgeous inspiration that awaits you. Don't forget to follow the blog by e-mail and never miss a post. We're looking forward to seeing your creations.
