Are you all ready to start the weekend? I know I am coz I've been running around too much this week and I need to s-l-o-w down! Too many things happening at once and not enough time to finish them. Maybe that's why I woke up with a headache this morning....my mind has not been quiet lately! Anyway...I have been wanting to use this sweet Tilda image for such a long time (I only have three little Tilda's...would love to have more though coz they are so much fun to work with), and finally I put my mind to it to complete a card, and here she is. I have to say this is definately one of my favorites that I've made. I took the sketch from Chelsea over at CLP, challenge number 21. I tried to combine a whole bunch of challenges which I will list below, not sure if I actually made the deadlines for them though. Even if I didn't, at least I had fun making this card!!
I colored sweet Tilda in prismacolored pencils and copics and changed the peaches to the color of plums. I actually attempted to distress for the first time ever! Not that you can really see it as I did it on the brown dp behind the heart...I tried to burn the edges a little but ended up burning my finger instead!! The wind was blowing outside and I was not paying attention to the lit match....hey at least I was outside otherwise it could have been the house that caught fire. No, I don't even want to think of that!
