Tilda & Friends ATC: May Celebrations

The theme this week over on 'Tilda & Friends ATC', is May celebrations, so maypole, spring flowers, blossoming tress come to mind.

Wasn't sure what to do at first but then my spring kit arrived and thought I'd use the tree and bits to create a spring scene. But then it looked a bit flat and bare so I added Tilda to make it look like she's sitting on a swing (you have to use your imagination a bit that the swing is hanging off the tree which is off camera, so to speak.)


Had to lop off Tilda's leg to make her fit which was a bit cruel but had to be done else it wasn't the size of an ATC (2.5"x3.5")!


Materials:

  • Images: All stamps or part of stamps from the Magnolia sping club kit. The branch is part of the tree swing and the flowers in the grass is part of Tilda laying in the grass . background and bird stamped directly onto ATC and coloured with distress inks. Stuck Tilda onto foam pads and added on top. She's coloured with Prismas, pearlescent watercolours and stickles.
  • Others: garden twine for swing and flower gems from stash.

Hope it's come across as a lovely blossoming spring day. Hop on over here to see all the other fab ATCs the DT have come up with.
