Tilda & Co Challenge 30 - Sketch This

This could well be the last challenge for the week as I really need to get on with the thank you's for the staff at nursery as Samuel leaves on 4 September..... but then again.....!!

Anyway, this is the Tilda & Co Challenge 30 which is a sketch:

The Tilda challenge this week is:

Please make your work using the Sketch as your guide,
You can rotate the sketch & even resize the Elements if you would like to,
But do not move the elements around,
As long as we can still see the original sketch layout and can be easily recognised then that is fine!
Please remember your work must include at least one Magnolia image.

So here it is! Pink Petticoat papers which I printed off ages ago and not got round to using them, layered onto lilac and pink card. The oval has been treated to the good old silver gel pen dots. Tilda image courtesy of Jozza's goodie bag from our meet up a few weeks ago, and its been watercoloured. And look - no ribbon!!! Are you shocked?! I've used raffia instead which has been threaded through the heart brad.

The image in a bit more detail

  • Papers - Pink Petticoat (both little pink flowers and lilac big swirls)
  • Image - Tilda, hand coloured with watercolour paints
  • Brads - Making Memories bright daisies and purple heart slider
  • Raffia - from my stash


  1. I love your watercolouring, Ruth. I meant to comment on that with the hedgie one, below, too. Lovely!
