It’s Tilda’s Town Challenge day and my week to play. The challenge is…Shabby Chic! I love collecting stuff to do shabby chic but it’s challenging to me… coming up with a balance and yet some feeling of collage type designing too!
This is Secret Tilda… A Christmas image from the Merry Little Christmas Collection. She’s in stock HERE!
Tilda’s Town is an awesome place to shop! Free shipping world-wide and discounts by order amount too! Love that!
I used a NEW Marianne Design Heart die… LOVE the dainty scallop border… more heart shapes in the set too… and a snowflake! Check it out HERE.
Tilda is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic Sketch markers. I started out with her pants, colored gray T3 all over… then I colored over that with R35, then pulled in R37 and R39 for the creases. The shirt and bow I colored gray T1 on first and then did the reds the same way as the pants.
I used some pattern paper from an old collection by Cosmo Cricket called Wonderland. Flowers by Prima… buttons from SEI…seam binding is hug snug I colored with Copic Various refills…Border die is Edwin Lace, link below.
Today’s TIP! I machine stitched around the panels on this card. I finished pulling the ends to the back side and taped them down… turned them over and it hit me… I didn’t change the thread color! UGH! White isn’t very shabby chic… so I used the brush tip of a copic marker, E51 to match this paper and just pulled it along the thread! YEA! Sometimes a gal has to be so creative! lol
Thanks for stopping by and hope you can play along in this week’s Shabby Chic Challenge HERE @ Tilda’s Town Challenges!
