Tilda with 3 Flowers

Good evening bloggers....

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. The weather was kinder to us here in Yorkshire. Well a least it wasn't raining all weekend.

Bought some lovely digi papers from Raspberry Road last week and spent ages trying to get them resized and printed to the correct scale. Have been using GIMP (it's free) for cropping and watermarks but this just wouldn't print out the same size as I had resized it.  After some long conversations over the phone with my Dad we finally got it to work in Scribus (that's free too) - thanks Dad.

I've used some of those lovely papers on today's card and another Tilda stamp.

The flowers are made from Magnolia dies rather than my usual WOC ones and I've also used the lovely heart tag too. I can see this becoming a firm favourite :)

The image is coloured as usual with copics and I've edged the flowers with vintage photo.

Here's a close up of the image.

I'm really pleased how the image has turned out. I saw this Tilda sat on the fence on a card that Kim had made ages ago and loved it. I've been wanting to colour this since then.

Here's a close up. I've followed the sketch over at Sketch n Stash. I really enjoyed following this although it did take me a while to choose the papers. I'm a bit slow, but hopefully I'll get faster.

Sorry the photos aren't as clear as I'd like them. I'll keep trying. There's just so much to learn. At least it keeps me out of mischief and from doing the housework too :)

A gorgeous card Janine. This is a really sweet Tilda and your colouring is perfect.
I am a really slow crafter (I average one whole card a fortnight!) so picking papers is long job for me..I can never make up my mind!

Hugs Elaine xx
