Totally Tilda challenge #2 make a shaped card

It's been a great day for shopping managed to find a pack of Aqua Markers in an art shop when I was looking for something totally different, I've not had chance to try them, I don't think they will be any different to applying water to any other water based media, I'm hoping I get chance to try them later this evening.

Well I had a struggle with the second Totally Tilda Challenge, the main stumbling block was which shape to use, in the end I decided it would be nice to try a plant pot.  I've fudged the plant pot shape without any templates and I'm giving myself a great big pat on the back as I managed it in one cutting session, usually there is a pile of scrap paper covering my feet. Tilda is coloured with Pro Markers, the paper is one I've had for ages (years) I liked the cracked paint look of it which seems to suit the plant pot idea. Ooh nearly forgot I bought a set of Justrite stamps and made the circle sentiment using them, I need a bit of practice with these as they don't always seem to sit level on the stamp. Ribbon, flowers and lace complete the card.

Simply stunning card Kathleen, love it all :-) Yes sometimes you don't need to buy templates when you can cut the shapes yourself and use the money you save to spend on more crafty stash :-)
Just had a thought you could even use scraps of fabric for the top layer of that bag as you would be cutting the top layer anyway - think I'll have to try that myself. On one of the layers I did use 2 separate pieces of fabric as I didn't have enough of one.
