Another Tilda with Koala

I was feeling well enough today to make a card. Mind you it took me all day and I'm done for.
I love this cute stamp. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and burnished it. Usually I use odorless spirits but I do like this way of coloring. The seam binding ribbon was died with Promarkers. I added crackle paint to the edges and got carrried away a bit LOL. Dear friend Chris Dark was the inspiration for my wild flower coloring at Tilda's feet. First attempt so will improve. I am entering this in the Maggie Lovers Challenge

Norma said...

Hi Maz, so glad that you are feeling well enough to make this card. By the way, it usually take me more than one day to make a card LOL, so you are doing better there than me. This Tilda with Koala is so cute and your colouring with your coloured pencils is just awesome.
Love your new gorgeous blog design--all the pretty snowflakes. Those doilie design behind your blog title is exquisite (now if only there is a die for it I would probably buy it LOL).
Hugs and prayers for you, dear Maz.
