Totally Tilda DT Call - Photo Inspiration

One of the things I really want to do in my crafting, is to be a part of a Magnolia design team and Totally Tilda are holding a design team call at the moment! I love Magnolia images so much and they are a joy to colour.

The design team call challenge is to make a Tilda creation using this photo as inspiration:

What a beautiful bouquet of flowers .. they are gorgeous!! They inspired me straight away as I knew I had flowers in those colours!

Anyway, this is my interpretation with my new Tilda with pencils stamp, coloured with ProMarkers. I have unfortunately run out of my Joanna Sheen card temporarily so had to use another I had and I don't think it looks as good but hey ho, hope it still looks half decent ..

I even tried out some clouds for the first time ever!! I did them with my Memory Box cloud dies and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Think it looks ok! I also used Shabby Shutter DI for the grass. Papers are First Edition Birdsong and New Leaf and a Papermania one .. not sure of the name! Eek! All matted onto some kraft. I used a Dovecraft heart shaped doily in the background, along with some WOC flowers and some big and small pearls. Thanks Pops for the little pearl hearts, they are so pretty!! :) I used my Viva pearl pen for some extra detail. Oh and the bow is Papermania with a sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

I am entering this card into the DT call over at Totally Tilda!

Happy Crafting!
