Good morning! I'm sorry I can't post everyday! I try, but work gets in my way! Hope you understand. Most cards have been worked on for a couple of evenings before they come together. My most creative time is in the morning and that's when I have to get ready for school. Do you have a time of day when you feel more creative?
Anyway, here is Tilda with her wreath ready to decorate for Christmas! I love that pink, blue and green can be Christmas colors! I wanted to use some of the new My Mind's Eye Christmas paper so that's how I started, but it just didn't work for this. I'll hoard it a little longer, something will come to me!
My card base is Papertrey Ink's cream color. I score just the front to make the main panel 4.25 " square. The layers are Baja Breeze and Pink Pirohette. The layer behind Tilda is dp from a Basic Grey pad. The dotted layer is a scrap from Bo Bunny's dotted line. Ribbon is from Papertrey. Of course, I added lots of stickles! I love to make this type of "hinge" card, because it gives you a nice square area to work with and that great side piece. I don't think I've ever made one with the hinge at the top, and I like it!
As I finished this card I wondered how it would look if it were more distressed with a tan ink to make it look vintage. I hope I get time to try it soon!
Here are my copic colors:
Face: E00, E02, R20
Dress, hat, mittens: B10, BG72
Wreath: YG03, YG95
Ribbon: RV10, R20, R81
Boots, hair: E31, E35
I added a VERY light brown to the fur areas, raw silk, I think (not sure of the number)
Hope you like it! I love reading your comments! Off to get ready for work!
Have a great day!
(Didn't plan for the pictures to be at the bottom, but don't know how to move them! Sorry!)
