My 1st ever Tilda Card

Well here it is, after some serious consideration before purchasing these stamps, I threw head to the wind and went ahead, an investment that's how I'm talking myself around. Anyway here is the first card that I have finished, its Tilda with bird. Isn't she pretty!!!

Firstly I took a pearlescent card and embossed with my new Fiskars hearts textured plate. Next stamped my Tilda with stazon and colour washed with Caran D'Ache pencils (ssh they are my OH's), cut her out on an oval shape, distressed the edges a little, and mounted onto a 2 toned card that I had. Finished off with some ribbon in a double not down the side, rounded the corners, added adhesive gems to the corners.

I decided to go with the bird as a robin as today, although it was 26C here, when I was outside working in the garden I saw a little robin and he sat and watched me hanging out my clothes. Thought he was cute.

I'm really chuffed with the way this card turned out and using the pencils was a lot easier to colour wash, plus it gave me a better colour spectrum to work off. Think these will end up in my drawer tonight :-)

Wow this is so cute - note the Fiskars plug.
I am finding it so hard to be motivated today - working with workshop door open and am popping out every so often (more often than not) to have a sit on the patio.....the trials of being a crafter...it's so hard..

Hi Karen, I love the card. The Tilda stamps are so cute. I also spotted the Fiskars plug too! (it's Georgie from Exeter) Hope you are keeping well and have recovered from the trip to Nottingham. Take care

This is lovely Karen. Love your colouring. I have resisted so far in buying Magnolia cards but have won some stamped Magnolia images in PIF candy so will need to find some time to experiment.
