Singin' in the Rain!

Well, I'm singin' in the sun, BUT you DON'T want to hear me sing! I just got my Tilda with umbrella stamp and I love her!! She is so cute in her striped slicker and I couldn't wait to ink her up! I just finished this card and I'm so sorry my photos aren't very good. Still working on the light box because the cats destroyed the first one!
This Tilda is available now at Magnolia-licious-#348 Tilda in spring Rain! Great price, too Link is on my sidebar! I colored Tilda with my copic markers. As soon as I saw her I knew I wanted to use shades of blue and green to color her clothing! I added Crystal Effects to her boots and white gel pen around the image. I also used a spica silver pen on the zipper. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket and is called Early Bird.
I will also say that I was somewhat concerned because I couldn't cut her out and keep the puddle and the raindrops which are perfectly drawn. Also, the angles on the image had me concerned about stamping her straight. Well, fear not! She stamped beautifully! I kept her leg straight and the angled boot balances the angle of the umbrella. Perfect! When stamped she has these neat edges at the top right and bottom left to work with. Excellent for a sentiment button or the ribbon and flower that I used. Hope this makes sense and isn't just weird ramblings!

Here she is close up!
And here are my colors:
Hair Y21, E08 and E37
Skin: E000, E01, R20
Blues BG10, Bg72 and Bg18
Greens TG21, YG91, YG17, YG95
others: YR31, E53 and Yo6
Thanks so much for coming back! I will try to make it a shorter time between posts!
Have a splendid day!
