From Boys to Men - Tilda & Co
'From Boys to Men' is the theme of the week 10 challenge on the Tilda & Co challenge blog.
'Making feminine cards with Tilda etc is fairly easy so we thought we would make the challenge a little harder this week, well I gave you 2 easy ones lately! You could make something for a new baby boy, birthday boy or the tougher challenge something for the man in your life!
This morning I rediscovered some scraps of this gorgeous paper from the French Market Collection by Daisy D's. It's amazing what's lurking in the bottom of my scrapbox! I must have had these scraps at least a couple of years, but they are way too nice not to hang on to... I even found some scraps of matching cardstock. As soon as I read the new challenge at lunchtime today, I thought 'oooh, I can use up some of those scraps!'
I've used three Magnolia stamps on this card, Edwin sitting, Edwins dog and the mushrooms, all coloured with watercolour pencils. Edwin and his dog are mounted on foam pads. The birthday definition is a stamp from the Celebration Messages set by See-D's and I've added a few bronze brads, Prima flowers and Prima leaves. Oh, and a few smudges of Dark Moss fluid chalk ink too :)
