Tilda Dotty Challenge




Over at the Magnolia challenge blog, this weeks challenge is to go Dotty, well I'm half way there in the head anyway. On this card I decided to bite the bullet and use my Heidi Grace "Let's Party" papers. Why is it that I feel so horrible when I cut into lovely papers? Why else did I buy them if it wasn't to use them? Anyway, back to my card. Soon it will be Erin's birthday and I thought that this would be a good opportunity to make her something. I stamped out my little Tilda and coloured her in using permanent pens on the trousers, and watercolours on her top, the reason I did this was to show the different tones in the colours (hope it worked). I purchased some cosmic shimmer on Friday and used this on her wings as Erin is a little angel, well at times!!! Used larger chipboard circles/dots with smaller letter circles/dots to spell out her name down the right hand side, used some of my dotty ribbons to make a "flower" on the top left hand side and added an adhesive star. Lastly put some rub on birds under Tilda's feet as I feel in this stamp that she is looking at something. This is a very cute, girlie card and as Erin will be 9 she is still a baby (in my eyes anyway) but not quite into makeup and proper girlie things. Well what do you think? Is is suitable for the challenge? Do you think my card could win? Watch this space :-)
