Totally Tilda Midweek reminder Challenge #45 Stitching


Good morning bloggers and hope you are enjoying a relaxing Sunday morning. Mine has been ridiculously annoying. I have been trying to get online to do this post for over 2 hours this morning but have been unable to. I have had to write this is Word and hopefully will transfer it at some point. I DO NOT NEED THIS.

So it is your midweek reminder for the lovely Totally Tilda Challenge which is..........

STITCHING REAL OR FAUX

You must, of course, also have a Tilda in there somewhere!!! You wouldn’t believe how many people have failed to read the rules for our challenges recently – or maybe you would???

Here is some more inspiration for you


I couldn’t wait to use my new Spellbinders shapeabilities Sewing Elements for this as I thought they were perfect for it – I have used Coredinations whitewash card for these. Thank you to my boss Susie Sugar for the Vintage Couch image that Tilda is sitting on – I have tried to make it look as though she is in a room with the dp being the wallpaper. I have coloured the images with my trusty Promarkers. I have hand stitched the edging with embroidery silk and wrapped some around the bobbin shape. I have distressed the edges wherever I can and inked with Worn Lipstick distress ink. There is a doily underneath and some lace across the bottom – all from my stash. The background paper is from a Polka Doodles CD – Double Sprinkle of Kraft.

I have done an inside for this one


and had to write the sentiment.

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:-

Magnolia-licious Highlites - Luiscious Lace,

Simply Magnolia Challenge - Use 2 magnolia stamps,

Magnolia Mania Challenge - Bingo - Tilda, Lace and distressing,



Passion For Promarkers - cut It Out,

Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes,

Polka Doodles Challenge - Shabby Chic/Vintage,

Looking forward to seeing some more fabulous creations.

Hugs
