Tilda is swirling now baby!

I love this Tilda. Is it the hair blowing, the rolled up jeans, the flower wreath in her hair? I don't know I just love her. So I inked her up for this weeks challenge at Tilda & Co., which was SWIRLS. Ok, love them too. =)

I am going to admit, this card is nothing like it started. I am not totally happy with it, but I am accepting it. I really didn't plan on the chipboard swirls to be heart. It happened, and it was glued down, oh well. I love the papers! Basic Grey Two Scoops is just so fun, and I love the colors of the whole line. So much so that I rarely use it, cuz I hoard it. I of course picked the swirl paper, and then two of the solid colors. I matted them with the same off white card stock that I used for the base. I then cut the edges of the mats with my fiskars scalloped scissors. Ha, yep pulled out my deco scissors, probably my first "tool" that I don't use that often any more. And I have oh I don't know 15-20 different ones! They really are a basic that I should use more. Anyway, I was going to sew down every thing... and would you believe I couldn't find my white thread!! Every color under the rainbow, but couldn't find my white! I must have pulled it out of the box to sew on one of hubby's buttons and who knows where I put it from there! So I used my white gel pen and doodled and stitched down things. The chipboard swirls are inked with Colorbox ink and then I used Stickles pink cotton candy on top. They are pretty cool looking in person. Tilda is colored with Copics and then high lighted with white gel pen. Her flowers in her hair are colored in with Sakura Glaze Pens. Love them, they are bright and shine. The "Hello" sentiment if from Fiskars Odles of Doodles set.




Well off to start my day... running late already. Gato has to go to the vet today, time for her 6 week check up. I hate when they have to give the shots to such little ones, but need to keep her healthy. (Oh and yes, I think she is a she. Told you it was hard to tell when they are so little) =)

Well make it a great Monday!
