Tilda Again!

Happy Monday to everyone!  Well today I have used the same Tilda stamp that I used last week.  I think I got a bit mixed up because I put some stamps on my worktop that I haven't used and left them there to be used  and I used this Tilda which I thought I hadn't used before but I actually used her the other day - lol!!  I have thought about using only one stamp for a week and see what kind of different cards I could make with the one stamp, I think that would be kind of fun!  Anyway here she is (again):

I saw a challenge to use pink and green and thought that was a nice colour combination I would give it a go so I hunted out some paper. The paper is from a gorgeous stack by K and Co called Sweet Nectar and I have had it years - I think this is the first time I've used it!!!  I don't know about you but I am a bit of a paper junkie I keep getting it because its lovely then I hate using it because its too nice.  The annoying thing is that papers do go in and out of fashion and some I have had a while are starting to look dated so I have decided to start using them more.  I have coloured Tilda with Copics and distressed the edge of the image with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  I have cut the image out and matted her using Labels 12 by Spellbinders.  The mat has been embossed with a small hearts embossing folder.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid as is the metal corner which I coloured with Copics.  The heart is punches out with a Nellie Snellen die and the letters with a Tim Holtz alphabet die.  The swirls are made with a Memory Box die and the heart border with a Martha Stewart punch, ribbon from stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Colour Create - Pink and Green
DRS Design - Hearts
Moving Along with the Times - Blooming Marvellous
Paper Crafting Journey - Floral
Cooking it up With Katie - Hearts, Punch, Emboss
Inky Impressions - Heart You
Little Darlings - Polka Dots
The Crazy Challenge - Flowers
Addicted to Stamps - Summer in Winter
The Corrosive Challenge - I Heart You
Everybody Art - Swirls
Oldie But a Goodie - Have a Heart (my paper is my oldie)

That's it from me, can't believe its the last day of January tomorrow!  If you haven't entered for my candy it is the last day tomorrow.  Take care xx

What an adorable card! Love the colouring of Matilda, the heart border, and the TH Alphabet dies. Thank you for joining us at Colour Create Challenge. :)

I know what you mean about paper, because I love beautiful papers too. For this last year I only bought paper three times, which was very difficult, promising myself to start using up what I have. I still have a fair bit to use, but I'm getting real itchy about getting more paper! lol
