Tilda & Co Challenge 39 - Arts Apart Metal

Today was another busy day, teaching month 2 of beginners quilting, I've some photos to upload tomorrow.
But I wanted to make something so I could scrape into the Tilda Challenge for this week, since I bought some metal charms at the Stamp Attic yesterday, as I didn't have anything suitable for the challenge. They are very like the flowers in Tilda's basket.
So of course I stamped Tilda, coloured her with Jelly Roll pens and some Marvy pens and she doesn't look like the sort of gal for rustic, aged charms! In desperation I've used some beading wire and wrapped it round a purple moon shape. The background was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and a chalk ink pad rubbed lightly over it. There's no sentiment on the card yet, I'm not sure what it'll be used for... Nor do I know where four rustic metal charms will find a home...


  1. I think your card is lovely, she has that kind of "wind swept" look about her, actually someone who is letting the wind take all her worries away, that's an idea for the sentiment. Anyway thank you so much for your lovely comment on my card, I don't have any magnolia stamps I just use stamped images that I buy but my stash is slowly running low - kind of hoping that santa might buy me some "real ones" as I've been a good girl ... well most of the time. Hope to keep in touch, Karen

  2. She is so pretty and whimsical looking. I love the wire-wrapped moon - I'll have to CASE that idea.

  3. What a great idea using the wire to wrap around the moon shape. Notice that Tilda seems very popular but don't think she has come to New Zealand yet. Just a question - why doesn't she have a mouth?
