Tilda in Spring Green~~


Hi all,
Have given in to my Tilda addiction and this card features the lady herself!
I have not used her in my last 3 or 4 cards, so it's about time she came for a visit!

I have made her in my favorite colour...green, I love green, all my cards would be green if I could get away with it!
I have entered her into 3 challenges and they are listed below:

The paper used is from Hot off the Press paper pad called 4 Seasons, I have had it ages but remembered that there were some great "Green" papers in it, so actually I ended up using 3 green papers, and they all came out of this pad~

This is a lovely Tilda, she is so sweet the way she is carrying the heavy pressies!
I had ribbon in my stash, and on this card did not want to add any fabric or paper flowers, (as the paper has flowers on). Instead I added a rub on corner and rub on flower. The MDUC wanted me to do a masking technique, so some of the rubber stamp grasses are stamped after a mask was put over the top of Tilda.

My MS punch made another appearance for the border edge, and my sentiment is from the lovely Sue Dreamer. (These sentiments are made on vellum and are just gorgeous).

My Green creation!!

Wow this is beautiful! Loving all that green, so pretty.
Regarding your question about distress inks, I just dab the pad onto an acrylic block and dilute with a bit of water, there are loads of tutorials on line. I always get the hang of it then go back to promarkers then have to learn all over again! Once you get used to how quicly they dry etc you will feel more incontrol with them. I just use decent watercolour brushes, i like a large flat one for the first wash as it holds more ink but after that I just use a mediuum pointed tip to build up the colour. Bet you would be brilliant at it! If you do decide to buy some get them online from Joanna Sheen as they are by far the cheapest and free p and p
