My project today is a different take on a chocolate slider. I have created a free standing tree with all of it’s leaves, branches and fauna and of course my little Tilda’s.

This is what I came up with:

tree 1

The chocolate slides up from inside the box at the back of the tree as seen by the following photograph: tree side viewThere are many little bit’s added to my tree to make it look realistic. Punches, die cuts, flowers, leaves, an owl, butterflies, grass, tree bark DP and of course my fun Tilda’s.

I have added a button and some twine to the front of the flower for a little extra dimension.

My Tilda’s are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11. E00, E000, R20 hair: E35,  YR21, YR20 clothes and wings: YG97, YG95, YG91, E53, E51, E50, YR24, YR21, YR20
