Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge

Here's my submission to the Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge. I really enjoy creating these ATCs and look forward to it whenever possible. This week's challenge is 'Lavender and Lace'. Checkout the blog here to see the wonderful DT samples.

The most difficult thing for this card was finding the lace and incorporating it on such a small space. I usually have lots of lace at home but for some reason can't find any - uhm! I remember my darling girls finding my stash of lace trimmings and ooohing and awing. In fact, I recall seeing it on their dolls and them saying - look mommy, look - just adorable. Well, I had to get me some lace and guess where I got some- yup you guessed it from my mom. Does anyone else notice a pattern here - giggle!

Onto the ATC: I used Lavender Lace SU cardstock as a base/matting and stamped the Tilda from the Magnolia Lilac Collection onto Wausau paper with Brilliance Black Graphite ink. I then masked her and placed the masked image over the one on the Wausau paper and stamped the stone wall over top - sounds confusing as I write this but it is easy peasy. I removed the masking and coloured the images with Copics. I added the SU Love and Happiness chocolate chip rub-on sentiment and butterflies. The wings were coloured with the gelly roll pen but I added icicle stickles over top. As for the lace, I made a bow and added a lavender butterfly brad to the centre. The image was then pop dotted onto the SU cardstock and voila!

The lavender scent is one of my favourties and I've planted some throughout my garden this summer. I can't wait for it to bloom! So head on over to the Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge and join in the fun. A new challenge is posted every Wednesday.

Happy Stamping,
