Tilda with Hawaii flower

Good evening , Funny how things turn out  I never thought this Tilda
would be made into a card as I only stamped her to practice colouring
folds in fabric .Not my fave colours either, I choose the colour of her
dress cos these  promarkers have never been used and didn't mind
wasting the ink for practice ,but when I finished colouring her dress
I was happy with the result and thought it a shame to waste her,
 I found a minds eye paper pack that came free with a magazine
sometime ago and coloured the rest of her to match the papers.
 The ribbon is from Joanna sheen and the swirls and the label are from
  Marianne design dies and I've used a ek success boarder punch
(Intertwined arches) to make the rosette ( I so love making them)
I have inked and faux stitched the edges of the paper and the sentiment
is from magnolia  and I almost forgot Tilda with Hawaii flower
Thanks for looking

hi I would like to say a big thank you to Faye for giving me this award I was very honoured
The idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs. This helps to spread knowledge and readership. 

"Liebster" in German means "dearest", so as part of the Liebster award tradition, I am going to pass this award to 5 blogs that I value, and that have both inspired and motivated me.

To accept the award, you must:

1) Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you.
2) Post the award to your blog.
3) Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.
4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know.

so there's the five I have choosen

1: Diane I think her cards and colouring are totally
out of this world and I love them

Beach tilda

This is not normal for me, two cards blogged in one day (lol)
I loved making this card for a few reasons , I don't usually do
backgrounds so this was a nice change ,also I got the prisma color
pencils out and I'm loving red white and blue at the moment.
The background is romantic sunset and I used  prisma color pencils
to colour ( I'm too mean to use my pens for this lol)
BEACH TILDA is coloured in using promarkers, I found the paper in my 
stash  and the little shells are from hobby craft.
Thanks for looking

my doll that I think looks like Tilda

I  have always wondered why I love magnolia stamps so much.
I bought this like musical doll years ago and my daughter
has a few too ,I think she looks like tilda and maybe this is why I
love my tilda stamps so much

I found this diary really cheap yesterday in tesco so I thought
I'd jazz it up a bit . I used Tilda writing diary stamp and a pile of
covered books stamp, coloured in with promarkers.My favourite
die at the moment posy patch from spellbinder to make the flowers
and some paper and buttons from my stash . Funny how things
turn out ,the colour theme I had in mind when I started was
blues and browns ,  but as you can see it ended up RED , WHITE
and BLUE not even close to the colours I had in mind lol
Thanks for looking

Tilda in summer rain

I thought it was time I started using some stamps that haven't even
been taken out of the packet let alone used (hangs head in shame)
I found this paper pack unused as well,the papers are from
forever friends pink parfait.I coloured Tildas face using
promarkers (Blush, dusky pink and pale pink for cheeks)
the boots and inside of umbrella was coloured in using copics
for Tilda dress and top of umbrella i paper pieced them.Also I
thought it was time to get the sewing machine out, a bit of a
chore as it reminds me of work lol, but I quite like the effect it

cards but I have found time to practice colouring and adding depth
with distress inks ( need to keep practicing ) I love my copics and
promarkers and wouldn't be without them ,but there is something
relaxing and therapeutic about water colouring.Hopefully I will
get a card done soon to blog.
thanks for looking
