Whoohooo My Very First Matilda!!!

Happy Saturday to all you lovely bloggers, I hope you are
having better weather than us today!! One minute it's Sunny
the next it's hailstones and gale force winds. The perfect
day for crafting I'd say! So here she is folks, this little lady
is called Summertime Tilda with Bow, I have coloured her
with my Reeves Water Colour pencils and also used my Le
Plume II pens. The grass has been made using one of my
Art Impressions stamps and then blended with water
colour pen, I thought she needed something else to stop her
floating in mid air!!! The papers are from MM Fresh Anthology
Eliza and Sydney collection, these pads have some really
gorgeous papers in them. The border across the middle
is from K & Co Classic. The tag I made myself and stamped
with Personal Impressions sentiment, distressed with Tim
Holtz around the edges then added stitching with pen and
finished with pink stone brad. Lace and flowers are all
from stash. I really like the effect of the laced edged paper
it looks a bit like an Handkerchieif and that green gingham
paper makes it look like it's laying on a tablecloth!! I hope you
like her. TFL Sue xx

P.S. I know there are loads of photo's but I couldn't decide
which ones to use!!! xx

This is stunning, Sue! What beautiful colouring. This Tilda is one of my faves (even though I don't have her!). I love your layout and embellishments - it really does look like a hanky on a tablecloth! Hugs, Sem x
