Tilda Blowing Hearts

I have another card to show you, this one uses Tilda Blowing Hearts from the With Love ‘13 collection.

001 (Medium)

This card is currently for sale in my Etsy shop – > HERE if interested.

I had a great time with this, I love it when a card comes together so easily. The papers are perfect. They are MME Lost and Found 3 – Ruby. I also used Sparkle Mesh Ribbon – Red on top of the paper. I love the fact that this has a pretty weave, is sparkly, and you can put it over paper and you can still see the color of the paper beneath it. I added dimension by using putting my red mat and Tilda on pop dots. The red ribbon bow I made using Becca’s Peg Bow Maker using ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The flower are from Wild Orchid and I colored one with Copics to match the grey in the paper.

I know, the holidays are not even over yet but it is time to start on birthdays. This one is for my DIL.

For a friend

Wow, I can’t believe it, three posts in two days! This will be my last this weekend but I am off work for almost a week starting Thursday and I am hoping to spend most of that time, except for eating and sleeping, in my craft room.

This project is for a friend whose birthday is tomorrow. I have had this image, Elven Hestia from Make it Crafty, for awhile and just haven’t colored her until today. I had a great time but it sure did take a long time!

001 (Medium)

I took a step out of my comfort zone for this one, this is the first time I have colored an image with an unnatural hair color but I like it. I used N6 in the shadows and then colored over it with BG07 to give it some depth. I like the way it turned out.

Tilda’s Calendar

Today over at Totally Tilda starts a new challenge …. and the last challenge of the year for us.

We want to wish all of you a happy holiday and we will back with you next year.

For my calendar I used a shadow box project that came in my monthly kit from Amazing Paper Graces. If you haven’t heard about these kits be sure to hop on over and take a peek, they are awesome!

I altered this by adding the 2013 banner cut from my Silhouette Cameo (love this machine, thanks hubby Smile). I then stamped these two using MIC Blending Card and Memento Tuxedo Black.

004 (Medium)

I colored Tilda catching stars from the 2012 Prince’s and Princesses collection and Hello Little Butterfly from the 2011 Butterfly Dreams collection with the following Copics.

  • Skin – E13, E11, E00, E000, R14, R12
