A Quirky Funky Tilda

A Quirky Funky Tilda...Get it?! No? Well, I thought it was a good title. Made me grin. Then most things do. Sandals with socks. Small wigs on big heads , and false teeth worn upside down... long story...
Quirky because it's for a challenge over on the Quirky Forum. Funky, because all the papers are freebie downloads from The Funky Fairys and Tilda... because there's a hedgehog on the front. Just kidding! (Double checking you are actually reading this!) There was a sketch to follow... which I followed, until it gave me the slip down a very dark alleyway and I wavered a little with the added flowers. For the insert (which I've left blank for the moment) Tilda was made a little smaller on the computer, then added to the finished page, which was scanned and saved so it can be used again. The insert inside this card though, is the original.
I used ten (!) Woodware punches on this card. (If you count the one on the back you can't see) I've just treated myself to one of their new ones. It's called 'Huge'. Here's a picture of it. I had to put the others in too, otherwise they'd get jealous and jam next time I use them...
I also did a bit of cheating... I cut the middle out of the first piece of backing paper. There is a name for this, but I can't remember what it is at the moment. Well, you're not going to see that there's a great lump missing out of the middle as it's covered with two other layers. I used the bit I cut out to make the flowers.
While I've been blog hopping I found another challenge, which has used this same sketch, but for the life of me I can't remember who or where it was... so, pop back later to see if I've found it, or, better still, maybe you know where and who!

I found it...Pink Elephant....last month! Bit late for that one, but they have a good one going on this week for Dustin Pike fans...
AND thank you to Cheryl!! The act of cutting out the middle of your backing paper (so you can use it on other things) is called gutting!!
