Tilda In Her Garden with Freebie Ginghams

If you looked in on WOYWW on my Wednesday post (HERE) you would have spied on my workdesk (dining table) that I'd been doodling again. The idea is, to make a few of my own digi backgrounds, which could then be used with other digi's or stamped images.
I finished this last night and made it into a card. I've coloured it with ProMarkers and put (Christmas) Party Tilda on the front on her way to a birthday party. The original drawing is a lot bigger than this one. This picture's a little too small for Tilda to stand on the path, because if she did she'd be taller than the tree! (Giant Tilda!! Don't worry she can't eat you, she has no mouth!! as hubby keeps pointing out!) But we won't mention that! My other idea is, if you print the background out twice you can then cut out the tree and make it 3D. I've done this with another one of my back grounds (Here) The happy birthday sentiment on the front of the card was a freebie from a set of clear stamps from a craft magazine, I'd forgotten I had them, so it's being used for the first time, as is the black and white heart brad, which is from Woodware. The black diamond pattern was made by a docrafts xcut punch. First time I've used that too, mainly because it cut the card, where the MS punch didn't. (and it was only about £3.50!) I've also added a smidgen of micro glitter on Tilda's pocket.The black and white gingham paper is a freebie from Activity Village That link will lead you to the 'darks' where you'll find about 16 pages of dark gingham colours. If you change the word 'darks' in the web address to Pastels, you'll get another 16 pages of pastels, and if you change it again to brights, you'll find even more!
The font inside the card is also a freebie (Of course!) and is called Clarence but, if you type it into Google you get a different font , so, I've found it's 'other name' arctic 2 and you can download it HERE

  28. Very lovely. Thanks for joining us at SMC challenges this week.

  29. Spydie-still whizzing some great stuff on your blog esp. the free text downloads.Tilda's mouth well in our house their is only one Tilda because DH finds them extremely unsettling and I HAVE to add in the mouth with a fine liner. I get it right with tracing paper first as I'm not a natural. A quirky little curve looks good and I wonder if the designer intended the mouth to be added so that we had some creative leeway. I won't be buying another one! Love BettyXXX
