Tilda is playing outside!

Hi Maggie Friends :o)

Two weeks sure go by fast!

Please take a look at the Design Teams work on the blog,
and remember you could win a Gift Certificate if you
enter our Challenge!

Paola, this months DT Member, has given us
this picture:


 I saw the light wood dresser and white basket
as well as flowers and stripes.

So that was what I intended to portray LOL

I have never had as much trouble making a
card as I had this time!
No matter what I did, it turned out wrong
and had to be redone :o(
I finally just had to go with this result...........

My card:

I have learned a valuable lesson when paper piecing.
Next time I will use my Prismacolor Pencils
to shade with. You can see that the
Copics did NOT work on Designer Paper!
I thought I could use them sparingly to just
make my shading - but they went horribly dark and ugly :o(

My intention was to paper piece Tilda's clothes
with what I thought was the perfect light brown with pink dots,
Design Paper from SU.
As you can see my card base is white as are the
background pieces behind the floral paper.
I have lost all feeling of the white by distressing
all of it with 'Pretty in Pink' ink from SU :o(

I have used papers from NitWits - called 'Bumbleberry Too'.
I thought the pink flowers and matching striped paper
were a great choice.
By trying to decorate my card
more than I usually do you can hardly see
the paper or my very pretty lace!
 I also know that I will have to use much wider
lace next time!!

My card isn't what I wanted it to be at all,
but I sure learned a lot from it LOL

Here are some close-up pictures for you:
