A Walk through the garden!

Hi! What was up with blogger this morning when I wanted to post!? Oh well, I put this card on SCS this morning and wanted to get a blog post done so here I am! I took a few shots to show you that she is a bit 3D. I stamped her twice and cut out her face/hair separately as well as the hand on the flower pot. I did not cut out a second flower pot. Instead I cut up the right edge of it and raised that portion with dimensional glue. The rest of Tilda I made 3D using dimensional dots. They are down the center of the cut our image, then I used a quick drying glue to glue down most of the edges. I glued the separate face on for more dimension.
My sketch is the Sweet Sunday Sketch for this week~I turned it. I wanted to make a flower but without time I settled for fussing a bit with the leaf die cut and one of my lovely Magnolia blossoms from Wild Orchid. The dp is My Mind's Eye, Lime Twist and I tried to match my copicss to the colors in it.
Here they are:
E000, E11, R30 for her skin
E50, E23, E37 and E29 for hair
E33, 37 and 29 for her boots
YG21, YG13 YG23 for her coat and grass. I added w2 to her coat so it wouldn't match too closely to the grass
Rv32 and 34 her dress
RV63 and 66 for her flowers and the tulip
The pathway is Toner greys (1, 3, 5 and 7)
Y23, YR12 and E08 for the flower pot.
And here is Tilda (#371 Tilda with flower pot) going for a walk in her garden! Maybe like me she has new flowers and has to find a place to put them! I'm a sucker for greenhouses and always bring home more than I have room for! Right now I have so much weeding to do that I've made a promise NOT to buy anything until I get it done! We'll see!
Tilda is on the Tulip Walkway (#404). Both are HERE ON THIS PAGE
and both are available in Mini too! (Just go to Mini world and then Butterfly Dream collection).And, before I go, another angle!

And, finally a wish that you have a good evening and weekend and thanks for coming by!

Hugs, Cheryl
