Farmer Tilda

Good morning everyone,

My card today is my submission for the card sketch challenge over on Splitcoast (SC191). I got my new Farmer Tilda in the mail yesterday from Diana Crick from ScorPal (if you are interested in purchasing these cute stamps, e-mail Diana at

I decided to create another scene with Tilda's horse. I stamped the horse with Memento black ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored it in with my copic markers. I then colored the sky in with copics as well. Next, I stamped Tilda (with Memento ink) onto GP cardstock and colored her in with copics, then cut her out. I did the same with the hay and the fence. I then created my card base (which measures 5x7) out of SU's Real Red cardstock. I then layered on top of that SU's Brilliant Blue cardstock and designer paper from DCWV Nana's Nursery Stack (baby boy). It's hard to see because my top panel ended up being so big, but I used my threading water punch from Fiskars on the designer paper to create a scallop.

Next, I layered my horse image onto SU's Brilliant Blue followed by SU's Real Red. I then adhered the fence in front of the horse using dimensionals. I then placed the hay in front of the fence using dimensioanls and then placed Tilda on the hay using dimensionals.

For some finishing touches, I added diamond Stickles to Tilda's wings and placed primas in the top left corner (the pearl in the center is from Martha Stewart).

I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Christine :)
