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.

A full frontal

Lastly a side view.

Absolutely lovely, Maz!
Love your design too.
I know how you feel. After not making a card for 6 months I found it hard to get back into the Copics. Doesn't seem to matter what you colour with - a break takes all your good work away.
Big Hugs, Candy
