Sporty Tilda

Hi everyone!!
Pi here with a Tilda stamp from The Winner takes it all collection 2011.

Today I'll show you how I made the background for Magnolia Golf Tilda stamp, the collection includes several adorable stamps for different sports.

I coloured her with copic markers and paper pieced her shirt with Magnolia paper. The pants are from scraps in my stash.

So, may be that most of you probably already practise this technique, but I just started this (if you don't yet know this by me - I'm always the last one to jump at a trend). Anyway, I started with white card stock and tore the stick side of a post it note to utilise as a mask.

Put the post it as high as you'd like the background to be.
 Then use your colour of choice, I used distress inks, but it should be able to work with any spray or mist if you like. I have not worked with that many brands of inks, but please add to the list if you know more. I started with Bundled sage and added Peeled paint to the edges and side were I wanted "shadow" underneath my swinging Tilda:)

Notice one side is darker than the other
When you are satisfied with the amount of colour, remove the post it note and behold the result.

Background - Done!

 In the end I also added with pencils grass , but I think I liked it better without... If you compare the pics below... What do you think?

Without pencilled grass...
With pencilled grasss...

I layered some ribbon bows on top of each other and added some stick pins to the mess. I also managed to get some of the gorgeous Magnolia chandelier garland in green to the mix.

The banner with the stamped sentiment is hand cut with scissors and layered with the same paper as the base of the card. To finish it of I added a butterfly charm in Tibetan silver.
