Gardening Tilda

I can't wait for the new Rainbow collection, but in the mean time here is Tilda in pink overalls. I think she is out checking on her flower gardens! I used #275 Mini TILDA IN LACE JEANS and #427 LAZY SUMMER FLOWERS for my circle card. I stamped the flowers twice on white xpress it blending card. I stamped Tilda on the same paper and cut her out after I'd colored her.

I see so many great dies from Marianne, but I don't have any! When I go to buy them they are always sold out! BUT, I do have this great die from My Favorite Things! I used it on the smallest grand large scalloped circle with a fold at the top. I don't have the grand large circle dies so I used the largest die from the regular set and traced the outside of it on my pink dotted paper (back side) and cut it out to get a bigger circle.

I used my copics to color the image, of course! Copics used are:

E0000, R30, E11 for skin

E50, Y21, E33 and E99-hair

YG01 and Yg23 grass

Bg10 around flowers

E33 and E99 shoes

RV10, 13 and 14 for her clothes. (Her top is RV10)

I kept the flowers small so they would fit and not take over the card, leaving flowers off so I didn't cover up the die cut too much!

Guess that's it!

Remember you can still enter our May sketch challenge or our wedding/ Scor-pal challenge over at the Mag Highlites Blog! We'd love to see your work! (Please check out the top two posts.)

Thanks for visiting today! I appreciate it so much!
