Totally Tilda Challenge - Chocolate... Yum!

I am so excited as today is the first challenge for the Totally Tilda Challenge Blog :-) Even more fun but I get to play along as their guest!


For all you Tilda fans be sure to pop on over to the blog and sign up as a follower so you don't miss out on the fun! The challenge is run by my friend Susie of Die Cut Dreams. The Totally Tilda Challenge is totally sponsored by Die Cut Dreams and Bunny Zoe's Crafts :-)

Their first challenge has just started and the theme is Chocolate. So lots of rich browns and creams. You can add a little splash of colour but your main colours should be chocolate.

The Prize: As it´s their first Challenge there will have 2 prizes this challenge..... so 2 lucky winners :-)


It has been way too long since I inked a Tilda and I had so much fun colouring this sweetie. This Tilda is from a Magnolia kit which I think was produced in 2008. My Tilda has been coloured with a mixture of Copic markers and prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. Just a little star dust on her wing and also some crystal effects on her bottle. This isn't being picked up in the photo very well but gives the bottle a lovely shiny glass effect. The paper is from the Basic Grey Paper Pad Nook and Pantry. So lots of chocolately accessories 8mm and 4mm Flat back pearls, various flowers and buttons, beigh lace and chocolate pins.

Be sure to pop on over to admire the talented design teams yummy creations! Go on... join in.... get inking up these cuties!

Hugs,
