The challenge this week on Just Magnolia is a theme for a change – Hot and Spicy. This can be interpreted any way you like. You can go with Hot as in summer, weather, colours, holidays or Spicy as in colours, heat, colours or both – it’s up to you.
I could not get my brain around the spicy bit so took the easy Hot option and went for summer. Who doesn’t like strawberry picking in the summer lol.
I think this little Tilda is from last year’s summer kit. I’ve coloured her with distress inks only for a change, not a spot of Twinks in sight. I’ve stamped the image with Versafine Black ink onto Fabriano Classico 5 Fat Pad hot pressed watercolour paper.
The papers are old and discontinued Cosmo Cricket papers (the best they made IMO). I have smeared Picket Fence Distress crackle paint around the edges of the paper (saved sewing them lol). The flowers and heart pin are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have used 15mm roses, 20mm roses and a 35mm wild rose. The gorge gingham ribbon is from the Craft Fairy. All the punches are Martha Stewart punches, the Monarch Butterfly is on sale at Dies to Die For, the border punch is the Floral Vine deep edger punch and I can’t remember the name of the leaf punch – it’s an age thing you know.
Talking about age ….. I went to the hairdressers for a mop crop a few weeks back and she said she loves the colour of my hair. I told her I was thinking of going back to my natural dull brown colour cos I was fed up with root regrowth. Know what the she said??? She said my “natural” colour is now grey as I’m more the 60% grey!!! Well my gob was well smacked!!! Natural colour grey indeed. Not a chance so back to the blonde I go rofl.
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by,
