Yes it IS me with a Tilda....



Hi Best Blogging Buddies...


Yes...... you're seeing right........ tis me with a Tilda image!!  Well, it all started when I was chatting to my good friend Christine (t'other one) the other day, and we were talking about Tilda's and I said I only possessed one, as they're not my favourite ever images - those who know me, know that well!!  Sooooooooo kind lady that she is (and I think issuing me with a challenge at the same time, she immediately inked up some for me and sent me them, along with some fabulous die cuts (more about them later).  Twas lovely to receive such a nice RAK!)

So I set to to do my Tilda proud!  I used Kraft card and Magnolia paper (which I distressed the edges of) that I'd bought from Donacaster show last year, and then the die cut that (because it seemed out of stock everywhere) I persuaded Christine to do some of for me...... I love it!  It's a Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily Die....  and it's absolutely gorgeous - and now I have it on order!!  I coloured Tilda with a mix of Copics and Promarkers.... shaded too with blues... then glittered her bow and underskirt with Glamour Dust.  The corners are Macarena Corner dies from Memory Box (from Samuel Taylor at Skipton the other day.... yes, ok, I confess,  MORE stash!  Katie at ST's knows now not to say the amount at the till out loud!!..... lovely girl!)  Then a couple of flowers out of felt and using another Cheery Lynn die.  Lastly, I used  a Woodware Butterfly punch and some gems that came from Stamping Bella a couple of years ago!  I think that's all that i have on it - quite a 'busy' card for me!

So don't say I don't ever do Tildas!  Hope you like this one.... I'll do another soon, I promise!

Hope you've all got a nice weekend planned - my OH is off this weekend, but I don't think we've anywhere planned ....  after going to Skipton and Sam Taylors the other day, I can't afford to!!  So maybe just more kitchen planning is in store!

Take care all and have a happy weekend..
Hugs

PS... The card looks better IRL than it does on the photos!

  3. I agree, she's lovely. I love the corner dies too. I held off using Tildas as I was really sick of seeing them everywhere, but after I'd used my first one, I too was hooked on them. You've done a fab job, she looks adorable.

  10. Well Christine, I am with you on the Tilda's, I would like them if they had a proper face. But you have certainly made a fabulous card and the image is coloured beautifully. It is a stunning card all round, very well done indeed.

  15. Hi Hun
    This is gorgeous, love everything about it.
    Let me know how you go on with the DI Markers, Ben from Art from the Heart was lovely and refunded me the day he got them back. I guess if you are just using them for painting then they will be perfect but I already had a lot of distress ink pads so the markers were of no use.

  22. Hi Christine, such a pretty card. Have to say I'm not keen on the Tilda's - that they have no nose or mouth is fine but the shape of the face is not nice (reminds me of a hippo!).

    Wonderfully coloured tho and love the corners - I really need some corner dies! Roll on my spend up!

  27. the combination with kraft card is a true hit! Thank you so much for entering the Totally Tilda challenge and giving me the opportunity to admire your work!

  28. Hi Christine, Tilda's are addictive you know. Once you've done one you have to make another...and those dealers always have something to tempt you with so you wont be able to go cold turkey. I love this card and the colouring is wonderful.
