Tilda + Co 'Spring Is In The Air' Challenge
The challenge at Tilda + Co this week is to make a card or other project on an Easter or Spring theme. I have made a matching shrink plastic pendant and card for a friend's granddaughter as I don't buy Easter eggs. I have stamped and coloured all the Magnolia images and then cut them out and placed them on a chalked background (next time I will stamp the tree directly onto the card, to save cutting round all the leaves!!). I have added glitter to Tilda's wings, the egg and the flowers for a bit of sparkle and the papers are from Imaginesce.
It seemed a bit cruel shrinking Tilda, especially the 1st time when I put the hole in her head!! I decided that wasn't nice so I made this one instead.
