There is a thread over on the Cricut message board for UK crafters, and I set a challenge to make a card using red, white and blue. I spotted this little Tilda waving the Swedish flag, at the NEC and thought she could be waving the flag for England. So here's what I came up with. The papers are by Reminisce, border punch is valentine hearts by Martha Stewart, and she was coloured with copics. The lovely shaped labels that Tilda is mounted on are by Go-Kreate and were cut using my cuttlebug.
Now Tilda stamp collectors may be scratching their heads at the sight of her pigtails. It's true, she started life with bunches of hair, but then I coloured her in, cut her out, and after a lot of work saw that she looked as if she had a bad case of jaundice. By this time, I really couldn't be bothered to start the whole thing over again, so I cut the head off another Tilda and stuck it on. Now you would never have known if I hadn't told you would you? I like to think it shows a imaginative, resourceful side of my nature, but in my heart know that it shows a lazy streak!
