Well, I’m a day late with this post. Been a little puny, missed work and had to take a trip to the doc but feeling much better. It’s amazing what a steroid shot can do to help you breathe and what antibiotics do when you don’t realize it’s something more than asthma!
A couple of weeks ago my oldest granddaughter graduated kindergarten. In the town that I live in they have an actual graduation service, I called it a mini-graduation. I had a wonderful time, they had a recital with the three kindergarten classes and a great time was had by all.
With graduations come cards …. and money …. and Graduation Tilda. Here is the card that I made.
Over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers our challenge this go around is dimension. I think you can see it pretty well in the picture here that her hat and arms are raised. Here is a side profile.
I used greens as this is the colors of the school. For my papers I used the new Tim Holtz Retro Grunge paper stack that I purchased from Stamping Scrapping. I love this paper! One thing I like about it is in the paper pack some of the patterns are reduced to 6 x 6. There are several pages using the designs that are in this size and then they are also 12 x 12 so if you like a pattern but find it big you can use the 6 x 6 as it is proportionately reduced to 6 x 6.
I matted Tilda using the new Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 13. These were released at CHA in January and I just love them! They are large and can fit an image with plenty of room.
In each corner of the card I used Prima Mini Roses Black-Gray. There are three different shades in each package and these just looked perfect with this paper. The little charm that I used says Just for you and I received this from my wonderful cyber friend Lisa. I just love little charms, they are so hard to find in my area and they really add to the cards.
Now, for Graduation Tilda. I stamped her three times and cut out her arms on one and the hat on the two others. For her arms I put dimension under the sleeves but not on the shoulders as I didn’t want her shoulders to stick out. They just have tape and are taped down. For her hat I used thin dimension for the top portion and then used a little thicker for the third round portion.
I colored her with the following Copics:
- Skin – E13, E11, E00, E000, R20,R00
- Hair – YR23, Y23, Y21
- Gown – G09, G05, G02
- Shoes – N8, N6, N4
- Scroll – E42, E41, E40
