Magnolia Tilda Autumn Wall Hanging for Inspiration Challenge

Good morning everyone. Yes, it's already time for the Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge and of course it's still hosted by our sweet DT leader Candy. She picked the following inspiration picture to challenge you to create something with it.

Remember if you play along with us, you might be the lucky winner to win a $25.00 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious Store. My project today is not a card, but a wall hanging. It's an "Autumn" wall hanging with Tilda with Horse Halter and a Mini Witch Tilda with Pumpkin.

Here is my finished wall hanging for Autumn. I hand torn the green DP and distressed the edges and laid it on top of another DP.

I am also using this project for the following challenges:
Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge #65 - Fall Colors
Magnolia Down Under Challenge #119 - Get punchy
TOMIC Challenge #21 - Bingo (Metal leaf brads, Black lace trim, Doohickey Die)
Craft Your Days Away Challenge #31 - Halloween Colors
Allsorts Challenge Week 126 - Halloween
If The Shoe Fits Challenge #94 - Fall
Pattie's Creations Design Challenge #31 - Halloween
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 125 - Autumn
CCEE Stampers 1142 - Fall/Autumn
Little Red Wagon Challenge #103 - Fall Theme
Deep Ocean Challenge #10 - Fall Colors
2 Sisters Challenge #62 - Pumpkin Patch

Closer view of the images

When I saw the inspiration picture, I wanted to find a similar pattern paper of that checkered coat to use for Tilda's shirt, but unfortunately, I couldn't find one that I like. At the end, I decided to use the similar color scheme Copic markers and hand drawn the linesto create my own checkered pattern on a piece of cardstock. Then I just stamped the image and cut out the shirt to paper piece it on the image. I also colored a very light coat of Primacolor pencil, so it gave the shirt a bit of softer look.

Here are closer pictures to show you the embellishment and the Cricut cut letters.

Here is a view when this wall hanging is up.

Some flat views to show you the dimension of this wall hanging.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you enjoy this project. Have fun creating and hope to see you at the Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge :o)

So Gorgeous Cabio.. as usual you have exceeded the expectations of what we are supposed to do, but then you always do.. Love the shirt and the boots and the leaves and the grass and then mini Tilda almost gets lost in the leaves, but I found her... Love the outline, this is one great wall hanging... Exceptional!!
