Tilda the Early Bird gardener!

Good Thursday morning! This card came about by happy circumstances! I had colored her face and hair awhile ago and set her aside. Inspiration can take time! I've been working with these Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers on some other cards and decided to put some of the scraps together for a card bg. Then I set that aside. The other night I wanted to color something and didn't they just fit together, so I went through my copics and did my best to match the paper colors. Now here she is! The ribbon and buttons are from Papertrey. The nestiblility ovals are from the petite collection so they are long and more narrow. I used my "airbrush" method of a juicy ink pad PTI aqua mist, in this case) and a 1 inch stencil brush. Tilda is cut out and raised on dimensionals. Stickles were added so this garden angel sparkles in the sun as she is working in her garden! I wish I was doing that today!
Here she is in her close up shot! Thanks so much for looking!
Copics used are as follows:
FAce R20, Eooo, Eo1
Hair and boots-sorry, I'm not sure.
Pants, Bg10 and Bg72
Can YG91, YG21, YG25, YG95, G99 (I had some trouble getting it to look the way I wanted!)
Pant cuffs YG21, Y06, touch of E13
Jacket YR68, R46, R17, R37, R39
Tilda with her watering can is available at Magnolia-licious right now!
I do appreciate that you visited today and thanks so much for the lovely comments on the Spring rain card!
Have a great day!
Cheryl
