Tilda visits the set of the Dating Game!


HA! At least that is what in reminds me of. Remember the set of the dating game all of the huge flowers on the wall, I wasn't going for that, but when I held it up to show Hubby we both thought of it at the same time. Oh and then his comment was "Tilda is the perfect woman..." Yea my response was "huh?" too. Then he smiles and says "Well she has no mouth... no talking... perfect!" Yes I then popped him one!


Now to my Dating Game ATC. The Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge theme is Perfect Pearls, to incorporate pearls, pearl paint, pearl paper or pearl shimmer of some kind on your ATC. I just got some new papers a while back that have a pearl shimmer woven in them. They are really cool looking and really shimmer a ton. I cut the white and the pink to mat, I went through all of my Magnolias I really wanted to use one of the new Summer collection, but I just kept going back to this pretty Tilda. She just looks like she of course would shimmer in that dress. I colored her with Copics and then carefully painted a thin layer of Perfect Pearls on top of the dress, looks like a ball gown now! I then pulled out some of the pretty plastic flowers I got from one of the LSS, they are iridescent - that is pearl right? Placed some pearl centers in them and stuck them down. I doodled the edge. And now common doesn't it look like an advertisement for the dating game? I just wish all the shimmer would show in the photograph.
Well I have a few minutes...gonna do some blog surfing and then get my day going! Hope you have a great Thursday!
HUGS and-

So cute! Of course, my mother would say that in that red dress, she looks like she would be working at an ol' school KFC. (I had a dress like this when I was a girl that I loved and she said that all the time...off to the therapist again! JK!)
