Blue roses for Tilda

Woohoo TGIF!!  I went back to work this week on adjusted hours after being off for 7 weeks.  The jury is out whether I am loving being back at work or not lol.  I could get used to staying at home I think.

So on to my card for this week’s Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge, we have a amazing sketch to follow done by Jacque with a twist – use lots of flowers (simples lol).

I dug out one of my all time favourite Tilda stamps – she has been so neglected the poor little lady.  Coloured with the usual Copics and pencils:
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20, R30
Hair: E25, E31, E50 and a touch of Dark Umber pencil
Blues: B95, B93, B91, B0000 then Copenhagen Blue, Warm Grey 70% and Black pencils. I used the Warm Grey to tone down the blue a bit.
Beiges: E42, E40, 0

I broke down and used one of the large Trellis roses (instead of stroking them then putting them carefully away rofl), and added to this 20mm roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, cherry blossoms and tea rosebuds all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also used their seam binding and rhinestones for a bit of bling.

The paper is K & Co Julianne – forgot I had several of these pads, so glad I found them when I was looking for something else lol.  I have a serious addiction to paper, so much so it is taking over my house lol.

I used a MFT Die-namics border die to edge the rose paper, and the swirl die is a Doo Hickey die (this has to be my most used die except for the old Nesties).

I’ll pop this card on eBay either tonight or sometime over the weekend.  Have a good one.

Oh and before I forget, my Copics and Prismacolor pencils class at Papercuts is now full, hopefully I will do another one soon :)

  13. Hi Bev
    love your card, that image is so sweet. I am so pleased that I am not the only one with a paper addiction, I keep trying to tell myself to not buy any new papers until I have used the enormous mountain that I have already, problem is they keep bringing out such lovely new papers, and I just HAVE to buy them lol. On the work front, you take it easy, you need to look after yourself.
    hugs

    Love your card and Tilda is looking good. Love the little rhinestone in the tiara and the sparkling gloves and knee stockings. Love all those gorge flowers. I often wonder: how much do you have in stock? *smile*
