Tilda with Peony Tail take two

My card today is Tilda with Peony tails again. She is from the Magnolia Stamps. This time I have colored her hair black. I colored her with Promarkers. The papers I used are from a Basic Grey pad and are called Hello Luscious. They are nice and bright. Just how I am feeling today. I used a spellbinder tag for the embellishments and added half pearls. I didn't feel to add any flowers to this one. I do need to work on the skin coloring as I think it is a bit too pale...Poor thing.

                                                                      A close up view.

I have entered her in the Magnolia-licious highlites challenge Blog     
Valentine inspired
And Simon Says Stamp challenge.anything goes

Distressed Tilda

Hello again!
Today I have colored Tilda with distress inks. I am so out of practice and this one is the best of about twenty attempts. Not much to say about it really except that I really enjoyed getting back into using the distress inks.
 I am amazed at how you can get out of practice so easily. This one is for my dear friend. She knows who I mean. She has been waiting for me to put something new on my blog. Now that I am so much better I have no excuse to be slack.
I love this Tilda. She was a Christmas gift from another friend. I am such a lucky girl. This Tilda is called... Tilda with Flower Pot. She is so elegant with her cute coat. She would have it off if she lived in Australia....Phew!! is it hot?
A sort of close up of her....not too close though. Don't want to show too many flaws LOL.
Getting game...a little bit closer.

Tilda with Pony Tails

Here we are into another year. Happy New year to all my followers and I pray that 2012 will be a healthy prosperous and happy year for you all.
I am slowly getting better after my lung operation so I was able to make an easel card. I got a lovely Christmas card from a Maggie friend that used this die cut so I just had to have it to use myself.
It is a Marianne design Creatables. A really good size for the Magnolia stamps. The little heart pearls around the edges are Jewelry seals. (like what you would use to decorate your mobile phone). The flowers are handmade ones using punches from Fun expressions. I colored Tilda with pony tails using Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

The flowers are very simple ones as I needed them to be quite flat for closing. The pearls in the middle are from Viva called a Pearl Pen. Color Ice white. Not sure about the black background. I thought it would show up the pale card better!!!
