Lemon Tilda in the Sun at ACR

Morning all, it's Friiiiiday. My goodness I'm glad to see the end of this hot and busy week.  I'm here today with my A Creative Romance design team hat on, yup it's the Elegant Artisans turn to post a challenge and I must admit it seems ages since I made something for them, because I stupidly missed the last one as I'd got my dates mixed up in my diary.

Anyhoo I'm here today and our theme is 'Fun in the Sun'.  So we want to see your Summer Sunshine inspired makes.

**It's 11 pm as I'm typing this up and i'm starting to fall asleep (lots of early starts at work this week), so to save time I'm not linking products or listing colours....BUT....I'll come do that tomorrow evening after work**  : )

So let's get straight on with the pics:

I used Lemon Tilda from the new collection. It paired brilliantly with this Maja 'Coffee in the Arbour' papers. All papers have been distressed, inked with Walnut Stain distress ink and hand stitched, I couldn't find top stitch thread in purple shades, so I doubled up machine embroidery thread instead. I popped a couple of Hot Air Balloon die cuts in the top left corner, using a La-La Land Crafts die, these were cut from the Maja Vintage Spring Basics 6 x 6 pad

She's coloured with Inktense pencils.
Skin: Baked Earth, Carmine Pink, Saddle Brown
Hair: Amber, Tan
Clothing, basket, lemons: Sicilian Yellow, Dusky Purple, Mauve,Light Olive, Neutral Grey, Saddle Brown

I added a little Aged Wine frantage and a little glamour dust.

Lace, Seam Binding and ribbon are from The Ribbon Girl. The bling is from The Hand Crafted Card Company.

Flowers are a mix from WOC  and The Ribbon Girl and the butterfly at the top is from Kay's Kreative Korner.

Do pop along to the blog to see the rest of the team's amazing makes, and why not join in, we have the wonderful Mary and Andrea from The Ribbon Girl sponsoring our prize this week.

I can't wait to see what you make!

That's all from me today, I'll pop along later and list colours and link products/suppliers and I'll be back on Sunday with my Totally Tilda make.

Have fun, it's almost the weekend!
