A two Tilda day!

Ok, I was having a Tilda withdrawal!

So it was perfect timing for the Tilda & Co. Challenge! This week was all Dottie! Well sitting right on top of my desk was these left-overs from my crop this weekend. And one of them is just plain dots. Perfect.

Using up stash, and filling the theme, and playing with what might be my favorite Tilda's. The sad thing is that I had some new ones that haven't even been inked up, but for some reason this paper really needed this particular Tilda. So I colored her with my Copic Markers, and high lighted with white gel pen. I cut her out with a small border. I then stickled her wings.

I then found a piece of green card stock that matched the pattern papers. I think these are Making Memories, but the name is missing so I am not for sure. I matted each piece with the base color, and then stitched with the gel pen. I found a piece of ribbon that I saved from being thrown away a couple of weeks ago. The sentiment is from Heidi Grace. It needed something more. Then I found these Prima Flowers, wow they were the perfect shades to match the papers, and I just love the centers, they are denim iron on pearls!

I really love this one, hubby commented that I really have done some country looking cards lately, maybe it is a new phase for me. Make sure to pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at how great the cards are there!








My second card today is for Ismaki Challenge. This week is a really fun sketch. I love the options that can be used for the circles. I was going to go with buttons, but while stamping my new Tilda I found the flowers from my last order. I thought they were perfect with the image.
I colored everything with Copics. I then cut the flower out and then used Twinkling H2O's for the petals, I then used some Doodlebug Ultra Fine Glitter for the centers. I used a piece of Basic Grey Lily Kate paper, on green and pink card stock. I matted the image with the same.
The ribbon is one of my favorites. It is from Micheal's Dots and Dashes, I think that is what it is called, but it is kind of frilly looking and I use it a lot. I placed everything down according to the sketch and then used a Sakura Glaze Pen to stitch the edges. I am sorry I do that all the time, but it just seems unfinished to me with out it.










I feel so much better using two Tilda's. It had been a while since I had and I was really missing my friend. =)

Well hubby is off today and we are going to work on a new pen for the donkeys. It is getting close to weening time for Rosie and then the other two girls will be close behind her. Can you believe it, they grow up so fast. sigh.


Hope you have a great Wednesday!
Hugs and -
