MDUC #34, Tilda in Wonderland

Hello everyone,
it is Sunday in Australia,
so that means it is time for a new challenge at
Magnolia Down Under
This week, we'd like to invite you over
to share your easel cards with us.
If you've never made one before,
you can check this tutorial out here.

Amd here is my creation, I've coupled Dreamy Tilda with one of Claire's doodles, you can find this and many fabulous others here at her digi shop. The papers are by Magnolia from Magnolia Down Under, the checks and brown dots are from last years Christmas release and the shrooms are from the Yummy for your Tummy release. Tilda was coloured in distress inks and the shrooms and snails were coloured in PrismaColor pencils, the images were layered on top of each other, where I created a shadow with the help of Faded Jeans distressing.

The sentiment is by Motivet, the border punch is by Fiskars, the punches used amounst the flowers are Martha Stewart, the flowers are a medley of gifts from friends in Blogland, notably, I have added Prima Center Kiss stamen to the centers of the mulberry flowers. This is a nice arrangement that sits fairly flat so I can pop this in the post straight away instead of fiddling around for a special envelope or box. No $7 postage card this time, lol.

I'll be popping this in over at the following challenges:

A Spoon Full of Sugar Spring is in the air!!
Colour Create Red, Pink, Chocolate and whitish...
PaperTake Weekly

Stamp Something Touch of Spring Somethings

I shall add this in over at Oh Alice!, Princess Kristy sent me and I am glad she did, as it is their kick-off challenge, Chapter One, Down the Rabbit Hole
Additionally, Lols sent me over to Totally Papercrafts to join in on their Lots of Spots challenge, thanks ladies!!!

Thanks for stopping by my project today, and I hope you will have a chance to check out the fabulous samples over at Magnolia Down Under this week, the samples are beyond gorgeous and there's a delightful prize up for grabs for one lucky lady!!!
Take Care,

Fran said...

I so totally thought Alice in wonderland when I saw this, sooo super Stephtastic! She is really adorable but when I see this stamp I always wonder why she is isn't wearing any pants? It's just tights, not even a skirt, has anyone else noticed this?! Maybe normal people don't notice these things, lol.
