Tilda - Chocolate Delight & Friday Sketchers 19 Challenges

I've decided to combine two challenges into one this week. So, to take the Friday Sketchers Challenge 19 Sketch, which is:

and combine it with the Tilda Challenge 36 for the week, which is to use the following Chocolate Delight image for inspiration:

And this is what I've produced! Apart from the brown (milk chocolate) backing, all the papers are from Funky Hand's Funky Season's cd. I've lightly inked all the edges with a pink stamp pad, plus the edges of the buttons.

The image has been coloured with watercolour paints and I think I'm now getting better at using the watercolours - well, it has been a long time since I did any real painting with them! Tilda's wings have been glittered with lumpy glitter glue. Didn't realise it was lumpy until too late but its actually dried ok!

  • Backing papers: Funky Seasons cd by Funky Hand
  • Image: Tilda, painted with watercolours
  • Buttons: From B&M Bargains
  • Ribbon: From my stash
