Autumn Wishes Tilda

Hi all! Wow! I'm thrilled to have had so many visitors yesterday! Thanks for all the sweet comments! If you asked a question I will get back to you, I promise! You can still comment on yesterday's Accessory post to win the card and some other "stuff" until Friday night, November 20.
I promised a Tilda today and this is she! My card base is chocolate. The dp is a foil sheet from K & co and then some of the Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg that has a wood grain. Tilda and the sentiment are on dimensionals.
The Autumn wishes sentiment and the log are also from Magnolia-licious. I see that the log is available now. I think I'd like to do a seasonal set with a using this layout but with a different Tilda on the log for each season! I can just see one of the Winter Tildas now!
I've used one of my ovals for behind Tilda, kind of like a harvest moon, I think! I cut the oval and leave it in the nestability. Then I use a 1" stencil brush to add color to the edges. If your pad is really "inky" just dust it off on some scrap paper to keep the color light and soft.
Tilda is colored with my copics and I was thrilled with the color I got on the oak leaves!
the colors I used are;
R17, YR18, E08 and R59 for the leaves with some R0000 for blending
Y21, Y17, Y38 and YR04 for the mums
Yg91, Yg95, YG99 for the greens
E43, E25, E47 and E50 for blending her suede boots
Y21, E99, E32 for her hair
W1- W3, W5 for her top
and the usual E000, E93 and E01 for her face. I added a tiny bit of E43 and blended like crazy for a darker look on her forehead.
I didn't keep track of the shades of E for the log. Sorry.
Well, there's still more to come this week with an Angel's Landing blog hop and release tomorrow and a Mo's Digital Pencil blog hop on Thursday. Our theme is Precipitation Inspiration and for once my card is already done!
thanks for visiting!

Cheryl, What a beautiful Fall card - your colour choices are so rich. I think your idea about a "Four Season Set" of Tildas done with this layout would be great. Nancy
