Tilda’s back to School..with a BOOK MARK

Many thanks for your stunning KRAFT creations at Totally Tilda chall this time..
we had some amazing oh so cute creations, you need to hop over for the winners list..
Well as you can see by my heading our chall this time is   A TILDA BOOK MARK
check out my teamies awesome creations they have defo got top marks for their stunning
Tilda takes on the chall theme.. they will really will blow your socks off..lol 
Our generous sponsor for this chall is Wild Orchid Crafts

For my creation I used my much neglected cricut machine to cut out a big tag shape..
The main card stock is the same blue as the frame around the image..covered with this lush
vibrant striped paper & distressed the edges..The sweet image is Tilda holding pencils..
she is stamped onto even weave fabric & coloured with copics.. as I have lots of Aida fabric
I went into the loft to sort thro my ahem..rather large collection of materials.. but only had
as small amount of the even weave..but that was enough..lol you have to be really careful as
the colour bleeds & runs so it was VERY light touches with the copics.. I have to tell you
I got my inspiration for a stunning piece of work by Suzi HERE thanks sweetie..XX

The coloured image is mounted onto white card stock, I used SB oval for the aperture
in the striped paper then the same for the SB labels 22 shape..more distressed edges.
Emily was cut on the cricut..(this was the prezzy I gave my GD last wk)  I tried to keep the
embellies flat so it could be used, punched flower, whimsy swirl die, Tonic b/fly punch..
blue gems from stock.. thats mine now show us your TILDA BOOK MARK..
