A Little Monday Morning Tilda...

Happy Monday Morning!! It's time for Showcase Monday at The Town Scrapper. Several of the Scrapettes have projects to show you today featuring some of the product lines that Phebe carries in her store. Today, I'm on the schedule for showing you a little something!

This is Tilda Holding Lamb from Magnolia Stamps. I always get so excited when Phebe gets a new shipment from Magnolia! This lovely little Tilda would be perfect for an Easter card, but there are so many other possibilities for her! I made a card that could work as a thank you card or even as a little something for a treasured friend. This gorgeous paper is from Jilly Bean Soup...picked it up on one of my recent trips out to visit Phebe!! The sentiment is from Amy R Thank you Sentiments from CC Designs...another stamp company Phebe carries.


I used an assortment of warm grays on the little lamb and coloured in a "swirly" motion to try and acheive a "woolly" look. (swirly...how's that for a technical term?? lol) I went back in with the colourless blender to soften the marker strokes a bit.


Take a look at see what the other Scrapettes have made today for an idea of the product lines you will find at The Town Scrapper! If you are not close enough to Petrolia, Ontario to make the trip, don't hesitate to give Phebe a call at 519-882-0623 or email her at info@townscrapper.com. Phebe will ship orders out to you!!
