This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Lilac, Blue and Green Tilda with Ruffled Skirt

The Tilda with Ruffled Skirt image, one of my all-time favourite Tilda images, was kindly donated by Tara Welch in an image swap we did some time ago. I think the dress looks like a perfect party dress!

I made the card for my young cousin and am entering it into a few blog challenges:

The image was coloured using the Copic sketch markers:
  • Hair: E21, E35, E57
  • Skin: E00, E02, E21, R20
  • Bow/Belt/Socks: RV21, V12, BV31
  • Wings: RV21, BV31, C0
  • Dress/Shoes: B00, B12, B41
Highlights were added to the image using the Papermania Snow White gel pen and cut out.

A strip of the multi-stripe paper from the K&Co Sparkly Sweet paper pad was matted onto a strip of Anita's Lime Green pearlescent paper that was punched along the lower edge using the Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch. A length of Dovecraft Spring Green organza ribbon was tied around the panel and then adhered across a larger panel of the lilac floral swirl paper from the same paper pad.

A circle of the green pearlescent paper was cut and embossed using a Nestabilities die, and matted onto a Big Scalloped Circle cut from lilac card, also cut and embossed using a Nestabilities die. A loop of the green ribbon was added to the reverse of the panel and the image panel was attached over the ribbon panel.

The sentiment panel was created by stamping the circle sentiment from the Hero Arts Birthday Messages stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink onto the green pearlescent paper and cutting the inner shape out. This was then matted onto the whole lilac sentiment, giving the sentiment a lilac border. A small loop of the green ribbon was attached to the reverse of the sentiment and attached to the card in the bottom right hand corner.

The Tilda image and the sentiment panel were then highlighted with Glitz It Lilac glitter glue.
