Happy Saturday everyone :)
Thank you for coming to visit.
I have been pretty busy this week with putting together a few things for my blog. Starting on Monday you will see something different that I would like to incorporate on a weekly basis. It is something that I think we can all benefit from especially when it comes down to all the social media that we use. You will have to come back on Monday to find out what it is ;)
Totally Tilda Design Team Call:
You wouldn't believe just how excited I am to know that Totally Tilda are looking for new members for their design team :) I would totally love the pleasure & would be honoured to be part of the team as they always offer the best creative inspiration. A Tildarette? Me? Can you imagine? lol
I would totally love the interactive commitment of creating for Totally Tilda on a regular basis. I am dedicated to my designing & always work my best in accordance to deadlines. I totally love Tilda & have been designing with Magnolia stamps & Doohickeys for quite some time now.
I have a very laid-back sense of humour, love to laugh & not to mention I love fun & games. With all this happening at Totally Tilda's Party blog, it sounds like a second home & family to me :) I am sure that I would learn a lot too. I always work better in a team environment. Wow, imagine being part of the Totally Tilda team! I say 'bring it on' Let's get started :)
Oh, but wait...I have to be selected first lol Gulp!
So, I have submitted my application to Totally Tilda.
The theme is to create a design with my own interpretation of Summer.
To me, Summer is all about my love for the beautiful flowers & their gorgeous fragrance here in Australia. Lots of greenery, warm summer sunshine, plenty of colourful flowers & blossoms. Not forgetting time with family & friends sharing that summertime love.
I have played at Totally Tilda challenges many times but to me, it's this one that 'really' counts. So not only are my fingers crossed but every bodily part that I can think of is crossed too in the hope that I get chosen lol.
Thank you Totally Tilda for this wonderful opportunity & for your consideration. I appreciate it & so does Tilda lol :)
Wish me luck my wonderful followers :)
Introducing Summertime Tilda :)
Look at Tilda sitting comfortably on her flowered heart blowing loving kisses or maybe it's star dust? Dressed in a lovely pink top & green overalls she is quite content with being surrounded by beautiful pink & white little blossoms. No wonder she is having a day full of sunshine & flowers :)
I coloured Tilda in the following Copic colours:
Skin: E000, 00, 11, 21, R20
Hair: E43, 50, 53, 57
Top: R81, 85, RV10
Pants: G21, 94, 99
Want to pin the Copic colour combo?
Well, to be totally honest with you, this design started off pretty easy but the more I got into it, the harder it became. Colouring Tilda with Copics was the easiest part of all :)
I selected the cardstock & papers that I wanted to use. I found a flower punch in my supplies that I hadn't used in some time & just started punching little white flowers. I ended up with heaps of them lol. I slightly stamped some pink ink onto them to give them a slight bit of colour & then added tiny little beads to them. I got one of my heart doileys out & started to adhere the flowers to it.
Hmm, what about some lace around the edges of the heart? So that's what I did. Next came the string of pearls to go on top.
Simple. Done. Looks good :)
But then....I went to place the heart onto the card base & the heart is way too big lol. I wanted to use more than just one design of patterned paper, so I needed to find a solution. No matter what I did, moving this part & that part, I just simply couldn't get it to 'work'. I decided I needed to sleep on it as it was already one o'clock in the morning.
When I awoke (& had my morning coffee) I played with the design some more & finally figured it out. Voila. I can now move on.
I wanted to continue with the floral scene, sooo I punched some more flowers. Different tones of pink this time :) I used my leaf Die through my Cuttlebug machine & adhered them to the card followed by the flowers.
I decided to add a tag, decorated it & added the sentiment to it. Along came the time to create the bow, add the flower, a sentiment postmark & adorned the design with its final touches.
I'm not 100% happy with it but I'm really glad that I finally got it finished lol.
