Tiddly Inks - Fabulous Friday

Yoohoo, just me again. Bright and early. HA! My last day at work for a whooooleeee week. Although my week off is getting full fast!! Monday I'm getting my hair cut, Tuesday I'm sitting in with my boyfriend on his new tattoo, Wednesday I'm gracing Ikea with my presence.. see where this is going?! No doubt I'll be able to fit the cinema in there too, although I gotta tighten the purse strings - my car tax is due at the end of this month. Gawdddd!! I'm not a one for great timing.

So you guys are here for some inspiration for the new challenge over at Tiddly Inks, right? :)


Yip. Ribbon, twine, felt, wool, lace, tulle, crazy mesh. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with.
For my card I used ribbon, twine and wool.. in the form of a crochet flower!

Here is Wryn.. of course. :)

I've coloured her using a mix of Copics and Promarkers and cut her out into a panel, on which I've stamped my sentiment from Amy R stamps in Real Red ink. :) Fills up that blank space, KWIM?

I've used some yummy papers from Echo Park - For The Record collection.. which is apparently really hard to get a hold of now? *hoard alert* haha. I adhered it to the card at an angle and wrapped some bright red bakers twine around it, tying it in a double bow. I then threaded a yellow polka dot button with some yellow bakers twine and wrapped it around the knot.

As for another pop of fabric, I used a gorgeous little crochet flower I commissioned from a lady over on FB. LOVE these little things. To 'ground' that so to speak I added a little green leaf stick pin and a little aqua flower from Wild Orchid Crafts. :)

Another cluster of buttons and brads at the top of the card.. and that.. was that. :)

Please stop by the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and see what the rest of my amazing teamies have got for ya!! I am over the moon to be a part of such an fab team - hell.. they even inspire me!!

Big squeezes.
