Totally Tilda's Midway reminder #69

Happy Sunday morning everyone,
We're already halfway through our current challenge over at 
 and we're still going 
 crazy lol!
So if you fancy a game with us you still have almost a week to play - just make sure you use at least one line of three in a row from our Bingo grid and you have our lovely Tilda on your creation too of course :)
The card I made for this weeks midway reminder is for my mums birthday that's coming up in a couple of weeks. It's a twisted easel and I made a box for it to go in, something I don't normally do, and I decorated the lid to match the card inside. Mum is my biggest fan and loves the creations I make so I thought I would do something special for her.....

I didn't over layer it with papers as the couple that I picked were too beautiful to cover up (like I usually do lol!) I picked out the creams and browns from the paper to layer up the base with cream and kraft cardstock.

I coloured Tilda with Ugg boots using DI's, mainly vintage photo and walnut stain to keep with the vintage look. I used black soot for shadowing and then cut her out and matted her using Spellbinders Nestie beaded oval, distressing with walnut stain and machine stitching around the edges. I added stardust stickles to her boot buttons and the butterflies, and tea die stickles to her hair. 

A close up of all those gorgeous WOC flowers, the double bow and sentiment.

This is a shot of the card in its box base next to the decorated lid.

I used the same papers for the lid and followed a similar design to the card. 

Kangaroo Tilda was also coloured with DI's with more tea die stickles in her hair and glossy accents on the sweet kangaroos nose! I'm really pleased with the finished bunting, they look like mini tiles mounted on thick cream card and that fab BG paper sandeed back slightly at the edges.

Lastly I took this picture from above the card as a fun shot!
