A Tilda Challenge....Across the Miles!!


I think it's so amazing how many wonderful people that I have 'met' through stamping. I mean, all over the world!! I know people across Canada, in the US, in Britain, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, France, Germany....it just blows my mind. And I think of you all as my friends!

Over the weekend, one of my friends in Britain challenged me! Caroline (better known as Caz), just got a bunch of the new Magnolia stamps too and since we wanted to play with them anyway, she challenged me to make a card using the new school Tilda with Slate (or chalkboard), so I did!!

This little girl is so cute, ready to go back to school and to me she looks like she has a little cheerleader outfit on. This is another DT card that I will be sending to Sweden for Magnolia to use at their trade shows. Everything I used on the card was from their shop, except for the Chocolate Chip cardstock and the frosted brads. The sentiment is a set by Verve Visual called Great Expectations.

I coloured Tilda with my Copic markers and I did the blush on her cheeks a little differently this time. I find it difficult to use the Copics on her cheeks and make it look natural so this time I took a q-tip and the new Pink Pirouette inkpad by SU and added her blush that way. It's not too dark or too bright and looks more natural to me. Then I finished her off by adding some highlights with white acrylic paint.




I happen to know that Phebe at The Town Scrapper has some new Magnolias in stock, so zip her off an email at mpmeeder@sympatico.ca before they are all gone!!

Be sure to stop over at Caz's blog and check out her designs. She's a great stamper and has her creations published in some of the British craft magazines.

If you would like to do a challenge with me using matching stamps, just email me and we'll see when we can squeeze one in!!

This was fun!! Thanks Caz!! Have a wonderful day, everyone!!

This is a fabulous card, Kimmie!!! I love how you did the blush it looks very natural and soft. I really like how you cropped the stamped image...I would have never thought to do that but I really like how looks.
Great colour combo too!
