Tilda's 3D garden

This week I kept thinking I wanted to make a 3D card, and here is my effort. For this project I used Coredinations ordinary card, and blue gemstones card, Glitter paper, My Minds Eye paper, Heat embossed Lilac stamped greeting and Silver wheelbarrow coloured with promarkers, Gold ink, my first Tilda stamped in Memento and coloured in promarkers, and Sunflower trellis flowers. I know its easy to forget your old stamps, but I love this Tilda, especially as shes holding a butterfly!
I started by covering the blank in MME paper, then started working on a way to create my 3d frame to represent the sky and the grass in Tilda's garden. I used strong card and cut it into strips, then folded it in half. Next I cut the pieces for the sky (using gemstones blue to show the sparkly sky) and grass and constructed my frame using double sided tape. I then placed the coloured, embossed wheelbarrow in the background to show her work in the garden, and placed Tilda sitting on the edge of the grass and the pretty sunflowers in the foreground. Lastly I placed a sparkly blue butterfly to one corner, and a 'Thinking of you' heat embossed greeting which was made with Lilac embossing powder and I highlighted this with gold ink from an ink pad to echo the gold in the sunflower field, then added a sunflower slightly above it in the corner :-)
I hope you like it!
