Lilac and Green Picnic Tilda

Here is another of my older cards that I haven't got arund to blogging up until now. I used the lovely Lily Kate papers from Basic Grey and an older Tilda stamp from Magnolia.

The Picnic Tilda image, from Magnolia, was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured using Copic Sketch markers.
  • Hair: Y00, YR02, E21, E35
  • Skin: E00, E02, E21, R20
  • Jumper: BV00, BV31
  • Dungarees: B41, B93
  • Patches: G12, YG11, BV31
  • Shoes: YG11, G12, N3
  • Wings: BV31, C0
  • Shadow: BV00, N3
Highlights were added to Tilda's cheek using a Papermania Snow White gel pen.

The image was cut out using a standard square Nestabilities die and matted onto a scalloped square cut from lilac card and distressed with Tim Holtz Milled Lavender distress ink.

A panel of Mia paper from the Basic Grey Lily Kate paper pad was matted onto the lilac card. A strip of the Rain paper, from the same paper pad, was punched along both edges using the Scallop Dot border punch, from Martha Stewart, and a length of lilac organza ribbon was tied around this and matted across the Mia panel.

The 'Birthday Wishes' circle sentiment from the Hero Arts Birthday Messages stamp set was stamped onto white card using the Versafine Imperial Purple archival pigment ink and cut out using a circle Nestabilities die. This was adhered to the centre of a lilac Papermania silk flower and a lilac card candy from Craftwork Cards was added to the centre and attached over the corner of the Tilda image panel.

Lilac Glitz It glitter glue was then added to Tilda's wings, around the circle sentiment and to the card candy.

Here are the blog challenges that I am entering this card into:
