Black Haired Cutie!

Here is a Tilda that I coloured a little while ago. Someone asked me how to colour black hair. I don't think I've ever done black hair before, so I pulled out several shades of cool gray copics and this is how she looks!! Pretty cool, huh?

This one is on it's way to Sweden at the Magnolia store. I used Tilda with Puppy and stamped her on Wausau bright white cardstock and coloured her with my Copics. The card base was supplied by Magnolia and I added Regal Rose and Bashful Blue cardstock along with the glittery dp from DCWV. I used my Nesties to cut her out and pop dotted her. I used my slot punch to make the hole to thread through some light blue Martha Stewart ribbon. I added some Prima flowers, brads and purple rhinestones!! So blingy! I also used my very first build-a-brad! I built it!! Yay me!

Well, the weather is starting to get warmer here in Ontario. And I'm not likin' it! What? you say....well, apparently over the winter, I've gained a few pounds back because my spring/summer pants are a tad too tight. Grrr. Anyone else in the same predicament?? I don't wanna go out and buy new ones but do I really want to starve myself again? Well, not starve exactly, but suffer tremendously anyway. I hate dieting and I hate excercise. Who's with me????

Lovely Card. Great coloring.

I haven't seen my jeans in months. I really need to start going to the gym or something.

I am definitely with you on the dieting thing and exercise thing. Don't like it a bit. I love your card. I really like how you threaded the ribbon through the oval and I love that paper. Your coloring is fantastic!! I hope you have a great day!

Oh Kim She is a cutie! Her hair is perfectly coloured and I think it tough to get the black hair to look good and you've done a fabulous job!
I hear ya, girlfriend! My Capri’s were a bit snug and I think I need to shed a few pounds but I don’t like to deprive myself of yummy treats…and exercise…YUCK!
Hope you are well, sweetie!

Great card! Your colouring keeps getting more and more amazing!

Totally get it on the diet/exercise thing...I had surgery last year and gained back a LOT of what I'd lost prior to my surgery (don't ask how much - you'd die!) Back on track now but eating is way more fun when you're not on a diet!

Sadly, I am with you! Too bad, I just like my food too much!! :)

Love your card Kimmie! Tilda is coloured beautifully!!
