Tilda & Co. Eyelet and Natural Challenge


Today's card is for the Tilda & Co. Challenge Blog. This week the challenge is "EYE EYE ITS A NATURAL FEELING" To use eyelets and something natural, leaves twigs or such. Oh I had some new toys for this one! First I had one of my new Spring Stamp Club stamps, isn't this Tilda just too sweet, I colored her with my Copic Markers, highlighted with a Ranger White Gel Pen, and wings stickled. Then yesterday I picked up a Nana's Nursery Baby Boy Glittered stack. Ohhhh this paper is so pretty. The only bad thing is that they were out of the girls stack =). I picked two pieces from the stack and put Making Memories tan flower eyelets on each corner of them. I then matted Tilda with a tan piece of Bazzil card stock and put eyelets on each corner I then used a piece of Papertrey Aqua Mist card stock as the base. I have hundreds of eyelets and this is the first time I have used them for longer than I can remember. Wonder why? I layered everything, I then got a white flower from my stash, and inked it with the Papertrey Perfect Match ink. I may have gone a little strong with it, as my flower is a tad bit dark. Then I added the "leaves" as per the challenge. I stitched the edges with a white gel pen and then added the sentiment from Rubber Stampede. I like the way it all came out. I am really liking this color lately, a cool breezy shade of blue green.
Have a Happy Wednesday!

I'm the sort of guy who passions to try new things. Right now I am manufacturing my private pv panels. I'm managing it all by myself without the assistance of my men. I'm using the internet as the only path to acheive that. I encountered a very brilliant website which explains how to build solar panels and wind generators. The internet site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not sure bout how precise the info given there is. If some people over here who had xp with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the site it will be grand and I would extremely treasure it, because I extremely enjoy [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com/diy-solar-panel-construction-is-it-really-possible]solar panel construction[/URL].

Tnx for reading this. U guys are great.
