Now I'm worried - really worried, I've used Tildas two posts running. I get what it is about them now, it's not the cute images I like particularly but the ability to colour them in effectively with my promarkers. Still a way to go to be anything like good a colouring them but improving I think
This week its Magnolia meets Mr. Mrs. Stampman as I search for ever different ways to use these stamps.
Magnolia is the Tilda of course and The Stampman Stamp is the fantastic lace nestie stamp from the new range designed by the lovely Jill. Have a look at their new collection here, they are brilliant and perfect for this weeks challenge at Try it on Tuesday.
The theme this week is to do a little up cycling, and whilst the stamps are most definitely new, the bangle I've used to sit her on and the chain and lace certainly are not. They are from a bag of broken jewelery which I bought at the charity shop and I think my little tilda sits beautifully on it!
I've made this for one of my lovely friends Kerry, who came to our last workshop and did a demo with the promarkers for us. Not only that but being the generous soul she is she actually gave me the stamp!
Talking of friends, I thought I'd give you an update on the friend we have staying at the moment - of the nearly feathered variety
Still as ugly but much bigger. As you can see his eyes are open and those dark patches are the feathers coming through. Every time I go in the room he starts tweeting to be fed and waddles across the cage to get to me. What is it to be a mother wood pigeon!! Really though it's a delight to see it growing so well after arriving here starved and half frozen!
There's delight a plenty over at Try it on Tuesday this week too so do pop over and have a look at the DT work and have a go at a little upcycling too if the fancy takes you.
Wonder what I can make out of baby pigeon? would it need gesso??............
