Tilda & Co Challenge: Numbers

Had great fun making this card for the second Tilda & Co Challenge. They've had a great response to their first challenge, who knew there were so many Tilda addicts out there? It's been great looking at all the different tildas out there and how same stamps can look so different depending on the colour combo.

Anyway, this week is Numbers. "This week's challenge i would like to see Numbers, Be it just 1 number on your artwork or lot's of numbers." Here is mine;

It's my sister's birthday coming up soon so decided to make this for her, using her favourite colour combo. Tried a different card layout, it was a SCS card sketch challange, called a kick stand card (saw it on another blog - thanks Marlene :) ) and thought it'd be good for this card as it looks like she's perching on the edge of the card.
Do you like Tilda's patterned t-shirt, pocket and jeans? First time I've tried doing this, usually just colour the whole thing in but fancied some patterned clothes on her for a change lol

Materials:
  • Image: 'Tilda wearing Pinnie' Magnolia stamp. Paper pierced and coloured with prismas and sansodor. Date stamp is 'Calender year' from Hero Arts . Just circled my own date with sakura stardust pen. Edges of both images chalked
  • Paper: used for both background and tilda's clothes from DCWV stack
  • Embellishments: prima flowers, sticky gems, ribbon from my stash. 'enjoy your day' from peel off alphabet.
