Tilda Christmas

Surprise......I have made a card. :-)
Last Saturday I finally found that I had the time to attend the local Copic Club started by the lovely Michelle of the challenge blog Make it Monday and her own blog Pink Paper Paradise.  Now if you live in the Cairns area and want more detail visit Michelle's blog and view her sidebar.  My friend Helen was able to join in as well, so a wonderful morning, colouring, coffee and friends.

I have not coloured for ages and really struggled with my first Tilda who is sadly sitting in the bin.  My friend Helen has always admired all the red copic colouring around the internet and we asked Michelle what colours she used.  I found that I had all but one of them and thought I would give it a go.  So this is my first attempt of colouring something red.  Yes, a lot more practise is needed but thanks to some shading tips from Michelle this looks better than my first attempt.  The other first on this card is the highlight area in Tilda's hair.  

I thought after all that colouring that Tilda should be the spotlight of the card so decided everything else should be white.   So used Stampin Up Shimmery White....as the name suggest it has a white shimmer/glitter to the card which does not show in the photo.  I dragged out my Spellbinders Label 18 Dies to use as the background for Tilda.  Ran the large one through my Candy Stripe embossing folder and the smaller through the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The flowers I have received at some stage from a lovely lady called Kaye.  The centres are lovely jewels and I have added Kindy Glitz to the top petals.  The sentiment along the bottom is a Kaisercraft rub on.

I would like to share this card with:
