"Tropical Tilda"!

Ooh don't you just want to be there???

Aloha to all you lovely crafters, Happy Thursday, I hope you are
all well and busy in your craft rooms. I have made this little Tilda
(Hawaiian) for the Just Magnolia Challenge which asks for a
different shape card. Well this one was going to be a Palm Tree
shape! then it was Z shaped! then Arch shaped! now when it's
laid out it looks like a Pineapple!!Lol quite appropriate though
don't you think? Well I'll let you all decide which shape you
think it is! I have done a little photo step by step guide to show
how it came together, I am really jealous of Tilda as I want
to be in that card!!!..........

First scored an A4 sheet of green card
I had in my mind that I wanted the palm tree leaves to be part
of the card and fall forward, so roughly drew them on a scrap
piece of card first and then onto top front of green card and
cut out.

All the papers for this card are from BG Lime Rickey and
Marrakech, I think they are wonderful the way they all blend
so well, the sunset and the reflection in the blue sea.

I have placed white and yellow for the wash of waves against
the sand. You can also see my little Tilda after I had cut her out!!
Not easy, it was late and I thought any minute I am going to
have an involuntary jerk and snip something off that I don't
want to!!!ha ha!! thankfully she is all intact!! You can see the little
heart I have punched out and stuck on the back, as the card was
getting heavier it needed support to stand, so the back flap just
tucks under the heart.

Pineapple Shape!!! Back view.
Green Limes have been cut out from papers, Sun is a punched
circle. Tilda has been coloured with my Le Plume II pens,
sentiment is a rub on from doodlebug. TFL Sue xx
