Purple and Green Gingerbread Tilda Panels

Here is the card I made for my matey Julie B for her birthday.

The Gingerbread Tilda image was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured with Copic markers:
  • Hair: YR23, YR24, Y17
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51, R02, R20
  • Blouse: YG03, YG11, YG13, YG17, Y00, Y02
  • Buttons: V12
  • Hearts/Trousers/Hat: V04, V06, V09, V12
  • Shoes/Basket: E31, E33, E35
On 'girly' characters, I usually just use R20 on the cheeks, but I decided to experiment with R02 and R20 (especially as I now have a few more colours to use) and went for a rosier cheek and I think it rather suits her! Tell me what you think.

The image was then cut out and highlighted with Craft Planet Iridescent Sparkle glitter glue.

A petite oval Nestabilities die was used to die cut a panel of white card which was then stamped around the edge with a small flourish stamp from the Fiskars Friends Forever Quotes stamp set using ColorBox Wisteria fluid chalk ink. This was then matted onto an oval of the green polka dot paper from the Papermania Spring Burst paper pad and a scalloped oval die cut from purple card.

Three panels of the green and purple daisy paper, also from the Spring Burst paper pad, were matted onto the green polka dot paper and a length of wide purple satin ribbon was adhered across all three panels. These were then matted onto a panel of purple card.

The sentiment, also from the Friends Forever stamp set, was stamped onto white vellum using Brilliance Graphite Black pigment ink and die cut using a circle Nestabilities die. This was then matted onto a Spring Burst journalling page.

The image panel and the sentiment panel were matted onto the panel and three purple paper flowers from The Crafty Cow were added to the panel and image panel with green Papermania pearl brads before the panel was added to the card blank.

Three green Kort & Godt pearls were added to the scallops of the sentiment panel.

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