Tilda & Co Challenge 31 - Christmas is Coming!

For this challenge I had no choice but to do a Christmas theme! For the Tilda & Co Challenge 31, the brief is:

*Challenge 31* Christmas is Coming..
Please Create anything as long as it is Christmas Related

This time (after learning my lesson with the Penny Black Challenge) I picked the papers and then coloured the image! Papers from Yule Be Funky cd from Funky Hand and these are from the Traditional Xmas collection. And as luck would have it, I had two lots of grosgrain ribbon that complemented the colours! The edges of the card and layers have been inked in green and black as too the sentiment.

Tilda has been coloured with water colours and her wings have had the gold glitter 3d paint treatment. She's been layered onto the card with 3d foam pads.

Sorry for the really poor quality of photo but it was chucking it down when I tried to take the photo so it was a bit on the dark side!

And my stock of Christmas Cards is coming on very nicely!

  • Backing paper: Traditional Xmas collection from Yule Be Funky
  • Image: 'Tilda with Teddy' painted with watercolours and gold glitter wings
  • Ribbon: Red and green grosgrain from Blackburn market
