Tilda Pennant for Sofie's room

This project I think I started to plan about a year ago,
and I have had the bazzil base for the pennants lying around since then.
This week I finally made the letters, cut out the patterned paper and
chose and inked up some images.

I wanted to do it a little more shabby,
but I just love the papers and I settled for a cleaner look.
No embellishments! *gasp!*

But I think it looks quite cute in Sofie's room. :)
The cards on the shelf are the birthday cards I made for her second and third birthday.

The papers are from Maja, and I love them so much!
I used my Martha Stewart lace punch, forgetting that it was actually broken.
One of the little holes is missing, the little pin broke of the last time I used it.

I used two images from Magnolia,
both are colored with Distress Inks.
I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo for the hair,
Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo for the skin and Aged Mahogany for the blush,
Victorian Velvet and Black Soot for the clothes,
and Pumice Stone for the wings and socks.
I used some Star Dust Stickles on them too. 

The letters I drew up and cut out of Bazzil.
Then I painted them a few times with Gesso,
then covered them with a thick layer of Crackle Accents,
and then Star Dust Stickles. 

The pennants are glued on a strip of seem binding ribbon,
and I stapled each pennant for extra support.

Wish right now

Oh, I sooo enjoyed being back at my scrap desc!
This image I colored before I left for vacation,
and I had the papers ready,
so today I just sat down and started cutting and embellishing.

The papers are from Maja Design and Magnolia.
I have finally gotten some more cheese cloth too!
It was a bit tighter than I like it,  but it' will do. 

The image is of course from Magnolia,
and I have colored Edwin with my Distress Inks.
I have been asked if I could tell what color I use,
so lets see if I remember:

Skin - Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo
Hair - Antique Linen and Vintage Photo
Pants - Wethered Wood and Black Soot
Shirt - Chipped Shappire
Socks - Black Soot
Plane - Faded Jeans and Black Soot

I finally got me some of those swirly-thingies, I love them!
These are from Kort og Godt.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

The clip and photo strip are from Tim Holtz.
I also used some pearls from WOC.

Candy winner!

Hello again!
I am now back from my holiday,
my daughter and I have been with my mother and her husband
at his families cabin, and finally I found the summer!
I got a little bit of a tan (Anne-style, normally I`m not white, but clear),
and now I feel so glad to be home! I have missed my fiancee and my stuff
and my bed and my scrapping, and my sweet blog!

I don't have anything to show you just yet,
but I have some new scrappy stuff I soon will dig into.

For now, I`ll warm up by drawing the winner of my
Tildas Town Candy!
I know, it was stupid of me to set the ending date right before
I left for my holiday, it should have been open until now.
According to, the lucky winner of my candy iiiis....

Number 17, and that is Dorte!

Send me an e-mail at,
and remember to go into Tildas Town and find your
favorite stamp!

Thank you all for visiting me while I was away,
now I am going to get started on a round of blog visits.

Lots of hugs!

Special Gift *CLP*

This card is for my sweet friend Elaine, 
who I was supposed to surprise with me remembering her birthday
that I blackmailed her into telling me about this winter, and instead I was
more than a month late, because I had written down the wrong month!

Better late than never, I say.

This is my card as DT-member to CLP,
I just loved that sketch. 

Tilda is painted with Distress Inks,
and I used some Star Dust Stickles and Liquid Pearls.

I used flowers, lace, stars, pearls and crystal stamens from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Some Prima flowers, one from Papirloftet,
and seem binding ribbon from WOC, and little pearl angel charms.
The brad is from Panduro.
The white fabric flower was a bit big, so I trimmed of one round
to make it smaller. 

The sentiment is from Magnolia, and I used twine from WOC.
I think the doily is from Kutt Ut.
