Double Dutch Challenge 5

The Double Dutch Challenge this week is a 'Don't be a square - be a Triangle'. This was great fun - the tutorial on how to make the triangle is on the blog and is actually a box. I used a Tilda image and watercoloured her. The papers are from the Vita Bella Collection. I didn't have any matching blue flowers so I made two from the HOTP fold back swirls template and finished them with a pearl brad. I added liquid pearls to the scalloped edge and added a ribbond and charm at the top. Oh! nearly forgot - the sentiment - well, say no more - hand written - I'm not happy with it and will change it as soon as I am able to.

Excellent, you have coloured Tilda beautifully and the sentiment look okay. To answer your question: It's not glitter card, but just plain old white! Then used 2colours of glimmer chalk blended, and then laquered. But can see on closeup what you mean. ooxx Ikki

Morning Heather - thanks for your comments on Messy Rabbit. I noticed Double Dutch on here and went to take a look - as you say it is different which is great. I probably will have a go at this (time allowing) but have you seen the list of challenges on my blog!!?
