Bananas Tilda

Well I've been thinking about this idea for a few days and just needed to try to make it into a card. I loved this Tilda image and need to get the matching sentiment but I just thought I would try to make the monkey look as if he was trying to steal the banana's so I hope you think its ok!
As you can see lots of different magnolia stamps from loads of releases just tried to keep them all within the theme. As always my images are coloured with pro markers and I have added stickles, glossy accents and glamour dust. 


I just love the fruit an her head just such a different image.

I have done the sketch from Magnolia Down Under but its my inside panel so I hope it still counts!
You can see inside the monkey is hanging on a twine rope which I have added a small tag with "Happy Birthday" on. My gorgeous hummingbird and lovely flowers have all been added. The front panel has acetate in as you will have seen I'm loving this design at the moment!!

This fab sign post which I have used a lot is coloured with pro markers and I have wrote the sentiment on then added this cute snail in front!  

Another cheeky monkey and hummingbird but I love them.

An finally a picture of the front where you can see through because of the acetate. Love it!

The challenges I am entering are:

Magnolias Down Under - Sketch
Totally Tilda - Happy Birthday
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - Tootie Fruitie
Polly Craft - Fabric, Ribbon or Twine

A big hello to my new followers and as always thank you so much for all your encouraging comments they mean so much!!!

That's it from me need to get back to my craft room!! It's been a lovely sunny day here in Sheffield but so cold so I'm hoping it starts to warm up again! Still got the massive pile off ironing but I just can't face it and in my defence I have cleaned the house today so I am allowed to play!!!

Love & Hugs Chanelle xxx

Your defence is fully justified - too many household chores in one day just endangers creative activity.
