Let's Go Fly a Kite.......

Morning folks,
I hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine as most of us here in the UK have, although I think we deserved some after all the torrential rain we have endured for sooo long.
Anyway, can u believe it's already time for another challenge over at Totally Tilda . The theme this time is 'Summer Fun Tilda' so loads of scope there, just remember you do need to include a Tilda on your project. Also we have a fab prize up for grabs as we are sponsered by the wonderful Crafty Ribbons.
I used one of my favourite Tilda's for this and had fun with the kite design which I got a little carried away with (the kite is properly strung and knotted with bakers twine!), however I think flight may be impeded by the weight of the flowers.
I chose to stamp Tilda onto kraft and coloured with my Prisma Pencils for a softer look than markers. The fab and fun DP's are from the Hopscotch collection by Basic Grey. The sentiment is LOTV and the Summer Fun letters are from the Vintage Market Sizzix die by Tim Holtz.
All papers have been faux stitched and distressed with Frayed Burlap DI.

Okay well I think that's everything but don't forget to check out the challenge and play along.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Just Magnolia - #167 'In The Country'
Tilda's Town - #11 'Name Your Technique' (Colouring on Kraft and Faux Stitching)

Bye for now
Happy crafting!
