Orange and Green Gingerbread Tilda

These are a couple of cards that I made using the Gingerbread Tilda stamp from Magnolia. I really like this stamp and I really ought to use it more. I made two versions of this card using different hair colours.

Here is the first with a more blond colouring:

To begin with, the Tilda image was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured with Copics:
Hair: Y21, Y26, YR23
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R02
Hat: YG11,YG13, YG17, YR04
Trousers: YG11, YG13, YG17, Y11, YR02
Top: YR02, YR04, YR07, YG11, YG13, Y11
Shoes/Basket: E31, E35, E37, E39
Hearts: YR02, YR23, YR24
Hairbobbles: YR13
Highlights were added to here cheeks with a Papermania Snow White gel pen, and to the buttons and hearts with Ranger Glossy Accents.
The image was then fussy cut and layered onto an oval and scalloped oval die cut using the Spellbinders Petite Ovals and Petite Scalloped Ovals Nestabilities.
A floral paper from the My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow paper pack was matted onto the orange cardstock and the Birthday sentiment, from the Papermania Clare Curd Sentiments stamp set, was white heat embossed in the corner using Versamark and the Stampendous Detail Opaque White embossing powder. A length of the orange baker's twine from Divine Twine was wrapped around the panel and tied and this was then adhered to the card front with the image panel positioned to the right.
Using the small fishtail banner die from the Sizzix Framelits Banners #2 die set, five banners were diecut from patterned papers from the Bloom and Grow paper pack and stamped with the letters of the word Happy using the Hero Arts Fine Lines Alphabet stamp set and then heat embossed with the white detail powder.
These were then adhered across a length of the orange baker's twine across the corner of the card.
Small green and orange pearls from Papermania and Kort and Godt were then randomly placed around the card front.
The inside of the card was also decorated, adding a panel of the orange spotty paper from the Bloom and Grow paper pack onto orange card stock. A white oval was matted onto an orange scalloped oval and the sentiment, from the Papermania Clare Curd Sentiments stamp set white embossed onto the green stripe paper and tucked behind the oval panel.
The card was also produced with a Tilda with a more brown shade of hair and a more yellow top.
