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!

Pink and Tea Green Strawberry Tilda

The Tilda image was stamped during a craft playday at Julie's. Alex very kindly let me stamp a few of her. I really love this image, and in an ideal world, I'd own her!

The Strawberry Tilda image from Magnolia was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and coloured using Copic sketch markers:
  • Hair: E13, E35, E43, E57
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51, R20
  • Flower/Hat/Dress/Socks: RV21, RV34, R20, E40
  • Shoes: E40, E41, E43
  • Watering Can: C0, C2, C4, C6, E40
  • Jumper/Leaves/Stem: G00, G12, YG11, YG41, E40
  • Shadow: C2, E40
The top corners of the image panel were then rounded using the large XCut corner rounder punch. A panel of pink card, punched using the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace corner and border punches was matted onto a panel of green paper and pink organza ribbon was knotted around it. The image panel was then matted on top.

A panel of the tea green floral paper from the Dovecraft Eastern Promise paper pack was matted onto the pink card and green paper and adhered across the card blank and the image panel was matted over the top.

The sentiment, from the HOTP Sentiments stamp set, was stamped using ColorBox Old Rose pigment ink and clear embossed. This was then die cut using a circle Nestabilities die and then matted on a big scalloped circle cut from the green paper.

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

Very pretty card. I am personally not a fan of the Tildas (something about their lack of a nose and mouth) but this one is super adorable.

Thanks for stopping by Amber's Crafts and Stuff! I hope you will join us again next Wednesday!

I love pink and green together. Your Tilda is adorable.

T too have that sentiment from HOTP. All of the stamps stick to the Acetate expect for the round ones, so mine are always falling out. I'm glad that yours stuck around to be used for this lovely card.

Thanks for joining us at Creative Card Crew.
