New Year's Tilda for FS99

Hi everyone! I had colored one of these Tildas to use on a card today. Then I saw the Featured stamper on SCS and was inspired to also make an altered tin. I didn't have anything to fill it so I lined the box in Chocolate Chip and Riding Hood Red cardstock. Here's the inspiration piece that I used. thanks, Barbara (stampfilleddreams)!
My card uses the wonderful new paper by Cosmo Cricket called Chemistry. Great colors and patterns, but they don't scream Valentine's Day, so you can use them for other things. the border punch is a Martha Stewart lattice work punch. To make the background behind Tilda I swirl color on my white nestability shape with a stencil brush. Adirondack inks in Cranberry and Butterscotch give this great coral color. I LOVE it!
The Tilda is colored the same way. On the the tin I also used the awesome Basic Grey paper Bittersweet and Urban Prairie. The ribbon is Berry Sorbet from Papertrey Ink.

Copic colors used are shades of brown-E31, E33, E35, E37 and E47.
Pinks and corals include Eoo and E02 for her face with R20 fro cheeks
The others are R11, R42, R32, R35 and R29.
Her hair starts with Buttercup yellow and I add a little brighter yellow and then some of my browns to it. I'm not crazy about the blond hair I make, still trying to find the right combo.
