No, do not adjust your monitors... Tilda has gone Black and White! This weeks challenge at Tilda & Co. Challenge Blog is to use Only Black and White. Well, I wasn't sure about what I was going to do, but after a few minutes of laying out everything I owned that was black and white.... I came up with this and I kind of like it! I found in my stash some Black Martha Stewart Halloween stationery cards, that I bought on clearance last year... really cheap! I then layered it with a piece of Deja Views Wedding Gray Paisley (gray is a shade of black right?). The frame around Tilda is a scrap piece of K&Co. Amy Butler paper matted with black card stock. Then I stitched around it with a Sakura silver glitter pen. Tilda was colored with Copic Markers, then high lighted with white gel pen. She is sitting, or pop dotted, on something new for me. I found these 12 inch border strips from Bazzill... oh these are really cool a package of different borders in Bazzill card stock! I purchased I think 9 different colors and they are going to be addicting. The flowers are Micheals Bridal Flowers in black with pearl iron on beads. I didn't put a sentiment on it. Thought I would use it as a note card or add something later. A challenge I didn't know how to tackle at first and I love the way it turned out. That is the great thing about doing these challenges, I try things I never would have on my own!
Ok and as promised I got a photograph of Patti for you. She is an unbelievable sweet donkey, very gentle, even with two crazy babies like Angelina and Lola running around her. Her mane is cut, that is how many keep them. I will let it grow out as I love seeing it blow in the wind. She is VERY pregnant, and should have her baby July or August (you should see her from the back!). The daddy is a wonderful stud that is also a spot. So we are hoping for a spot baby... but you never know what you will get =)
We are hoping for rain here tonight. The hay fields around here really could use it. Hope you have a great Tuesday!
