This is what you can make while the Cubs go into extra innings during a Sunday afternoon game. The game lasted five hours today and went through 14 innings, but they won! They won!
Ahem. Anyway, while I was going through some friends' blogs, I came across a Magnolia - licious blog hop and challenge. I haven't played with my Tildas for a while and thought it would be fun.
I also was anxious to break into this new Doodlebug Designs paper for summer. I was at Archiver's a few weeks ago and just took one sheet of each design off the rack, I had to have the whole set!
The challenge was to make a post it note holder and little bag to carry it. So the Tilda you see is on a post it holder and there is a very BRIGHT green post it pad inside. The 'ribbon' Tilda is sitting on is actually a stamp, I have a set, I think its Hero Arts, of ribbon style stamps and my favorite has got to be the gingham. You can make it in any color and it looks like it is real ribbon.
My favorite way to color Tilda is with an aquapainter and SU reinkers. One day I'll get around to really learning how to use my copics, but for now Tilda and I will paint together! :)
And I guess I was itching to make some layers after the no layer card challenge for PTI so my little bag has lots of them! I also wanted an excuse to use that lacy vintage cuttlebug die and it kind of reminds of this loopy, short sort of garden fence my dad used to put around strawberries when I was young. The bag looked a little plain, so I used the Martha Stewart punch to add a bit of coordinating loopiness at the top. :) And I had a wee bitty strawberry stamp set from Stampendous that sort of matches the strawberries in the Doodlebug Designs paper. Thanks for looking.
