A Spring “thing”…

Spring is in the air, flowers everywhere (well, that’s stretching it for Iowa) and a color curve… pastels and a touch of brown.

I used Will you be my Valentine Tilda from the You Are So Special Collection. I don’t think she’s just for Valentines Day, so I’m using her for Spring!  I also used the NEW Vintage Flowers/Leaves dies and the NEW Antique Lace die. I also used the Doohickey’s Swirl die, poinsettia die (leaves under the flowers) and fence die. I added lines on the flowers, the leaves under the flowers and the branch type leaves with copic markers…the same colors for the reds and greens below… I used two colors of Twinery Twine …the Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder and the Gertie 6×6 paper pad in the store.

At stamp club last Friday,  Annette challenged us with her program to use embossing folders more often…so guess what…I did it! lol  Thanks Annette!  I embossed and sanded… love this look.

A couple more pictures…

I only used one punch on this card!  Martha Stewart’s grass border punch.  Tilda is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink  and colored with a combination of Tria, Promarkers and Copic markers…that’s why her face looks different! lol  On her skin I used ivory, blush and sunkissed pink.  Her hair is E50, 31, 33, 35, 37.  Shoes W1, 3, 5.  Flowers and hearts in the bouquet are R21,22,24. Her dress Buttercup, tulip yellow, YR30, 31. Green on the bouquet YG91, 93.

I cut my circles with my coluzzle templates.. I know, oldies but I still use them… I love nestabilities and they would work too.

 Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is so darn cute Pam !!! Darn it I said I wasn’t going to order any more Tildas for awhile & here you go making me want more !!! Oh well what are friends for if not to enable one another right …
    Beautifully colored with not 1 not 2 but 3 different coloing mediums. So what’s the scoop on the Promarkers ? Is this something I NEED now ? This card really is the best. Love the fence & that new lace & how you’ve cut the circle out & framed her with flowers. BEAUTIFUL work !!!
