Totally Tilda Challenge

Tut Tut Tut what a bad blogger am I!!!

Apologies to my lovely followers for being MIA of late but life has just gotten in the way of my poor little blog lately, i've been on hols, had sick children and poorly pets, but enough of my excuses!

I was doing a little blog hopping earlier and I came across the new challenge over at Totally Tilda and it gave me the nudge I needed to post this little project i've been working on for my daughters room.

Excuse the rubbish pictures I could not for the life of me get one full picture it is soooooo big.

I started off with ready cut bunting which I bought from the range and I covered it in Dovecraft paper from Little owl pad.  All of the edges have been hand stitched and distressed with DI tattered rose, including the letters which i printed from a crafter's companion CDRom.

I stamped my tilda's and then scanned and enlarged them on my pc before printing off and colouring them with promarkers and lots of stickles.

The embellishments are a mixture of hand stamped (covered in glossy accents) and wild orchid flowers.

I used lovely ric rac ribbon from the pink mini kit from the ribbon girl.

I hope you like my project, i have some more things to post so hopefully i'll be back some time next week.

Thank you so much for looking and any comments you leave.
