Summer Fun and DT call at Totally Tilda*****

Hi everyone,
I'm so nervous... it's the Design Team call at Totally Tilda and I would LOVE to be picked again!!!!  I had the best time ever and don't want it to stop, lol!!!  The theme for this wonderful occasion is:
Your interpretation of Summer.
Bonjour tout le monde,
Je suis très nerveuse... chez Totally Tilda, c'est l'appel de l'équipe de design et j'adorerais être choisi de nouveau!!!  J'ai eu beaucoup de plaisir et je ne veux pas que ça finisse!  Le thème pour cette occasion merveilleuse est:
Votre interprétation de l'été.
So, for my summer fun, hubby and I like to go camping in our travel trailer.  I call it camping, but really, I think it's actually nicer that our house, lol!!!  I still have internet access (very slow) and my Copics!  We really enjoy the lake and all it's activity.  Would you believe that my husband told me it wasn't a true representation because he doesn't like to fish?  What about creative license, lol!!!
C'est le deuxième été que mon mari et moi allons en camping avec notre roulotte.  J'appelle ça du camping, mais vraiment je crois que la roulotte est plus belle que notre maison, *rire*!!!  J'ai quand même l'internet (très lent) et mes Copics!  Nous profitons du lac et de ses activités.  Pouvez vous croire que mon mari m'a dit que ce n'est pas la vérité parce qu'il ne pêche pas?  Voyons, il faut un peu de créativité tout de même!!!
It's the first time I tried to do a see through card.  I was inspired by my good friend Danielle.  She even send me the jute so I could put the last accent on!  You wouldn't believe how heavy it is!!!  There's lots of layers and I had to do a lot of masking for the images.  On the inside right panel, I stamped a lot of summer sentiment and embossed them.  I left the other side a bit bare so I can write something!
C'est la première fois que je fais une carte dont on peut voir l'intérieure.  Je me suis inspirée de ma bonne amie Danielle.  Elle m'a même envoyé la jute pour finir la dernière touche sur ma carte!  Il y a beaucoup de couches et j'ai du faire beaucoup de masquage pour les images.  À l'intérieur, j'ai estampé un paquet de sentiment d'été et je les ai embossé.  J'ai laissé l'autre côté un peu vide pour pouvoir écrire!

I coloured Tilda in Key Largo and Edwin with Copics on Neenah cardstock.  I added some Stickles to the water and Smooch Illuminate to the seashell.  I put some Frantage on the water for the reflection.  I realized there's probably no seashell in a lake, but just couldn't resist this little sweetheart!
J'ai colorié Tilda et Edwin avec mes Copics sur du carton Neenah.  J'ai ajouté du Stickles sur l'eau et du Smooch Illuminate sur le coquillage.  Je sais qu'il n'y a pas de coquillage sur un lac, mais je ne pouvais pas résister cette petite!
For this scene, I had to stamp the camper (Tilda and Edwin tours) first, then mask it, stamp the Hiking background and re-stamp only the fire!
Pour cette scène, j'ai du estampé la roulotte en premier, ensuite la masquer, estamper le fond et puis ré-estamper le feu!

Peau/Skin E13-11-00-000-93, Coquillage/Shell E44-43-42-41-40-BG72-70-RV00-000, Canne à pêche/Fishing pole E37-35-34-31, cheveux Tilda's hair E29-25-50, cheveux Edwin's hair E37-YR24-Y21-YR30, Salopette/Overalls BG75-72-70, T-shirt Y38-35-32, Robe/Dress YR18-14-15-12-00-W3-1-0-CB.
I made this with some clay that I stamped with Winter Forest stamp and then airbrushed with Copics.  I dabbed a bit of alcohol to make it look like some water got splashed on it!
J'ai fait ce morceau avec de l'argile et une estampe que j'ai ensuite airbrusher avec mes Copics.  J'ai tamponné ave un peu d'alcool pour donner l'air de gouttes d'eau!

I'm crossing my fingers, I would be so happy to be part of this wonderful team again!
Je me croise les doigts, j'aimerais faire partie de cette équipe merveilleuse encore une fois!

I would also like to participate in the following challenges:
A Creative Romance:  anything goes
Tilda Town:  anything goes

Sandra said...

Ok Brigitte, now you've officially blown me way!!!

I don't know where to begin, so perhaps I will start with saying; you have truly utilized every element you have learned. Your ability to mask and create a little story is uncanny.

You have coloured everything to perfection and your imagination is limitless. I would be so surprised if you didn't make that DT because you present their images in the best form possible, and show how with a little imagination you can create a masterpiece.

This is truly a treasure and a wonderful tribute to the things you like to do, and who you like to do them with!!!

Bravo girlie, Bravo :)S

Danielle Champagne said...

Brigitte, cette carte est un merveilleux passeport pour un autre mandat, que je te souhaite de tout coeur, car ton travail est toujours spectaculaire, tu sais nous inspirer autant part ton magnifique coloriate que par ta mise en scene, et tous les petits détails qui font font que tes cartes portent toujours ta signature personelle. Ton interprétation de l'été me fait rêver... un bord de lac, la roulotte... c'est fameux.
j'oubliais... ces petites tuiles d'argile sont de toutes beauté, je trouve ton idée GÉNIALE!!!
Alors, bonne journée ma bonne amie! xox

Crafty Kitten said...
