Challenge #13 at Cooking It Up!

Happy Wednesday!
It's time for another challenge over at my Cooking It Up With Katie card recipe blog.

This weeks recipe is:

Use some fabric (ribbon doesn't count)
Add your favorite technique and tell us what it is
Tear an edge or use deco scissors

Remember the challenge includes all of the above and anything else you want to add.

A few challenges helped me too:

Friday Sketchers had a great Sketch
Paper Cutz had an Anything Goes theme
Fussy and Fancy want Green
Incy Wincy want at least 1/3rd Green
Cuttlebug Blog want Green and use of CB (I used mine to cut my Nestie)
Magnolia Stamp Lovers want to see a Die Cut
Cleary I Stamp want you to Think Green
Stamp Something want Green and Cream
Raise The Bar want you to Go Green
Colour Create had the combo of Mint, Chocolate and Cream
No Time To Stamp wanted Green, Pink and Brown
Crafty Calendar wanted Flowers
Creative Cottage also wants Flowers

Card Recipe:
Image - Tilda with Teddy Bear from Magnolia-licious
Paper - K & Co
Medium - Copic Markers
Fabric - Unknown
Brads - The Paper Studio
Sentiment - Studio G for Michaels

I tore the background strip behind Tilda, sewed the fabric flowers (my new favorite thing) and I slightly distressed and inked the edges which is a favorite technique of mine.
I tried to do the Distress Ink coloring look with my Copic's ala Suzanne Dean and although I followed her You Tube video I think I'll need to practise a little more but I really like how this Tilda turned out.

I hope you've liked my little Tilda and that you'll join me over at Cooking It Up With Katie
