Tilda in Boots

Hi Everyone,
Hope you have all had a crafty day like me, I have been very busy with this little Maggie in Rubber Boots. I have really tried to step out of my comfort zone lately and try different colours with Copic’s and was pretty happy with this creation.
Tilda in Boots
For her dress and boots I used G20, G82 & YG93 and the hat has YG 93  & 97, her hair is a combo of E50 & E42 and I added a little dark brown 946 prismacolor pencil for her curls. The skin tones are the usual suspects E0000,000,00 with the exception of R01 for her cheeks. The DP is Kaisercraft English Rose paper pad , I really like this one, gorgeous papers! Flowers from WOC, Sentiment form Gina K Designs and lace is from my stash.
I followed a fab sketch from Bec at Creatalicious Challenges , and you still have plenty of time to enter this one.
A Spoon Full of Sugar wanted to see a get well soon creation, and Simply Magnolia said Anything goes, doesn’t everyone love those two words, couldn’t be any easier.

For my Sister, my best friend

Hi all,
The title says it all really, I have made this one for my Sister’s Birthday and she just loves gardening, so when I saw this new release at Cuddly Buddly Crafts I just had to have her. She is a digi image and is called Coming up Daisies. Over at the Allsorts Challenge Blog they would like to see Lemon & Lime combo.
For my Sister, my best friend The CS is Bazzill and the DP is also from Cuddly Buddly digi paper, the lace is prima and the flowers are from WOC, the little fronds is from my new Marianne designs die (decorative florals ) and the flower garden is a MS Punch, the sentiment is computer generated.
Sister insideThis digi image is called Garden Glimpses on the inside of the card. I coloured the images with copic’s and prisma pencils ( sorry I havn’t got the list ) you see I had already made this card, then seen the challenge and I thought it would be perfect. That will teach me in future to write everything down , just in case lol. I hope my Sister likes her card , she really is my very best friend and always there when I need her.
Thanks for visiting me, I would like to enter Allsorts Challenge Week 109 – Lemon & Lime

Tilda Tag
The DP, lace , ribbons are all from my stash. I havn’t made a tag before so I wasn’t sure how I would go. I was pretty happy with how she turned out. The heart die is from Magnolia and I used the little hearts ( that normally go into the bin ) to frame her. The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts, the sweetheart blossom in the middle has just a touch of distress ink on it to bring it into the design.

A Present for You

Hi Everyone,
I have a card today and I really stepped out of my comfort zone, I have been colouring my maggies with pinks and pastels but today this little sweetie is different.
A Present for you
I used copic’s and also just a touch of coloured shimmer pencil to highlight a few areas, need more practice of course but I did like some of the effects this created. The DP is Prima Botanicals and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts the sweetheart blossoms that I used were all white so I just touched the tips with Memento Potters Clay Ink to blend with the rest of my design. I have followed the sketch by Bev for the WOC Challenge.

Peachy Tilda

Wow the MDUC host Kylie really put us to the test this week in Challenge #99, a colour combo of Peach, Purple & Cream. Here is what I came up with
Tilda Time
Shopbron is sponsoring this weeks challenge with a fabulous prize. I placed my first order with Bron the other day, I got some Copic Blending card. My package arrived really quickly and Bron had added a sheet of cream Cordenons blending card for me to try. I am so glad she did it’s absolutely beautiful, it’s so smooth it feels like silk. Thanks Bron! it’s great when you get little samples so you can try before you buy. I will definitely be getting some in the future. I have used it on this card, and love it lots, hehehe.
Close up tilda time   I purchased this Tilda from Bizzy Bec’s online store, isn’t she lovely.
