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!

Red and Aqua Tilda With Hawaiian Flower

The Tilda with Hawaiian Flower image from Magnolia was very kindly donated to me by the lovely, talented Teresa/Craftingallday.

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured with Copic sketch markers:
  • Hair: E43, E44, E49
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51, R02, R20
  • Dress; B00, BG10, BG11
  • Flower: B00, BG10, BG11, R32, R37
  • Leaves; YG13, YG95, E44
  • Butterflies: R32, R37, R39
  • Socks: BG10
  • Lace Frills: BG10
  • Shoes: B00, BG10, BG11, E44
Tilda's cheeks were then highlighted with the Papermania Snow White gel pen.

Once again, large parts of this image were coloured using the Transfer Technique as discovered in the Copic Colouring Guide, using both the lighter shades and the blender pen.

The image panel was then trimmed and the corners rounded with the large XCut corner rounder punch. This was then matted onto a panel of red card die cut using a Labels 8 Nestabilities die and embossed with the Indentz Ellipse embossing folder.

A strip of the blue floral border paper from the Prima Madeline paper pad was matted onto a strip of the red card that was punched with the Martha Stewart Doilly Lace punch. A length of aqua grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around the strip and a shorter piece was knotted to the right.

This strip was then attached across a panel of the butterflies paper from the same paper pad and a Marianne Creatables leaf flourish die cut, also cut from the red card, was tucked under the ribbon.

The image panel was then added over the ribbon.

A large pale blue pearl brad from Papermania was added in the top right corner.

The circle sentiment, from Aud Designs, was stamped using Memento Rhubarb Stalk dye ink and coloured with Copic markers:
  • R32, R37, BG10, BG11, B00, YG13, YG95

This was then die cut using a classic circle Nestabilities die and matted onto a red classic scalloped circle.
Once the card was fully assembled, the circle sentiment and the butterflies in the image were then highlighted using Ranger Glossy Accents.

I also decorated the inside of the card using a strip of the border paper matted onto a strip punched with the Doilly Lace punch. The sentiment stamp, from the Papermania Clare Curd Sentiments stamp set, was stamped using the Rhubarb Stalk ink.

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

Pauline said...

This is beautiful, the colours are fab together, and your colouring of tilda is wonderful! Love all the embellishment too, a beautiful card.

It's a small world! It was lovely at Highclere yesterday, and really busy! We went this time last year, and there were about 10 cars in the car park - yesterday there were about 6 coaches and probably 200 cars there! It was packed! We got to see where the Pamuk character passed away!
