Tilda in Spring Rain

Hello stampin' friends! I hope you are having a good day and weekend! This is the end of our spring break and we've gone from SUN to rainy and dreary today! Very fitting for going back to work! So sorry for those getting the terrible rain and storms!As I mentioned the other day, I have a lot to finish for our Third Stamp Fest on May 1st. So I made this card a quick one for the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast today-Gloria. I was also inspired by a card that Sharon made at our LSS! She colors beautifully as does one of her "helpers" Debbie whom I got to meet!
Anyway, what I started to say was-I really do like these simple cards that are all about the colors and coloring with few embellishments! I hope you like it too!
My stamp came from Diana at Magnolia-licious.
She really has the best prices and a huge stock of images! Here's a close up and my colors:
Skin E000, E11 and R20
Shadow W2 and W00
Hair Y21, E33, E25 and E29 (same Es on umbrella handle)
Rain/puddle B21
Berry colors are R30,R32, R35
Greens YG11, YG13, YG17
zipper y17
Thanks for coming by today! See you soon, I hope!
Cheryl

Hi Cheryl! I love this Tilda too and it's rainy and yukky here... I do like it cool compared to hot and humid though! You've inspired me to get this Tilda inky...so many that haven't seen black ink yet! ugh! I even have this same sheet of paper! Super cute! Reminds me of my g-kids w/their umbrellas! ♥

Cheryl your Tilda is just to cute. Love the inside of the umbrella colored a different color. Cute paper that looks like raindrops.

Garnet said...

I like the simple cards the most also. You did a great job on this card. I was looking at your up close picture so I could see how you shaded her. I can see you how you used just a little darker shade on parts and that brings out the depth. Thanks for sharing your wonderful card.

Beautiful job of coloring, as usual. I always like to study your cards for inspiration. I have to agree, the simple cards are now refreshing, and can actually be mailed in a regular envelope for a change. Linda S. in NE

It tickles me pink to see you play with ink!! You always have and choose just the perfect paper, too Cheryl.

Hope all your preps are coming together for the weekend; it'll be great to see you again. Hopefully this nasty cough, sore throat and tightness will have left my chest by then!!!
