My very own first ever Tilda...for that reason she will always be special!! I love her...she is soooo cute!
After drooling over Marlene's colouring skills, and then reading her excellent tutorial, I had a go at colouring Tilda with my distressing inks! I gotta tell ya...I really liked the technique!!
A very "forgiving medium" (my husband laughed at me for saying this; and yeah, I laughed at myself then)!! Anyway, because of the way the distress inks work with water, it allowed you to "manipulate" the colour a bit better than with my usual "derwent" pencils...now I'm no expert, but i enjoyed the technique, and I'll definitely keep on trying with it, although I now need to "invest" in some more colours...so HUGE thanks to Marlene for introducing me to another way of using stash I already have!
I'm going to enter this card in Gina's blog candy; you have to make a card using a stamp, pretty papers, ribbon and flowers...tick all 4 boxes!! I've used papers from the Bailey range by K&Co on my card.
I'm liking this little technique of "underlining" a word in my sentiment with little gems...I used a pair of scissors to distress the edges of the red square in my card. Yep, I'm very pleased with this result! bx
