Today's card is using one of only a couple of Tilda stamps that I have - I must get a couple more. They always seem to stamp well, giving a good, clean sharp image that's ideal for colouring. However, I wish my colouring was a bit more 'ideal' - I wasn't too happy with this one, but hey ho, practice makes perfect (allegedly!).
As you can probably tell, this is another one of those cards where I'm challenging myself to use different colours than I would normally, and in this case, much stronger and brighter colours.
I've coloured her with promarkers and prisma pencils - but as I said, wasn't too impressed with my colouring skills on this one!
The flowery backing paper is K&Co and I've embossed a piece of Coredinations card with a CraftsToo embossing folder and then lightly sanded the flowers back a bit. I love playing with this Coredinations card - some nice effects. I bought a great 6x6 'variety' pack from CardCraftUK and it's got some wonderful colours in - so expect to see it appearing a lot more!
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts - a small gardenia in a lovely blue shade and a couple of hip rosebuds. The sheer ribbon is from Joanna Sheen and the pearly pin from my stash. I've edged the backing paper with a Spellbinders edgeabilities and then punched small flowers down - and added small pink flowers on the opposite edge. The flourish and butterfly are from Marianne Creatables.
So, quite pleased with the overall effect (apart from my colouring lol!) especially as it's using fairly strong colours. Hope you like it!
Thanks for calling by - and I love it when you leave comments, it really makes my day!
