Good Ol' Tilda!

Good morning everyone and a big welcome to my new follower! I'm slightly a bit worse for wear this morning if you know what I mean!! We had a lovely time with my daughter and her partner last night so today will be a nice relaxing day and hopefully crafty day!!  I have got a Tilda card today, again I made this a few weeks ago.  I did make a card yesterday but didn't take a picture of it yet I'm still not sure about it.  So today I in order to kick start my mojo I have got a Saturated Canary image to use.  I just bought it on Friday as I have really loved them when I see them on other people's blogs so I thought it would be good to try something new.  I'm a bit nervous about colouring her though as all the ones I have seen are by people who are so brilliant at colouring but I shall give it a go.  Anyway enough waffle from me here is my Tilda:

Got your sunglasses on?  She is very bright isn't she I think I may have gone overboard on the yellow lol!  I have coloured her with my Copics and added Stickles here and there.  The heart die is a from Marianne, the doily die from Cheery Lynn and the sentiment tags are an old punch I have had a long time I think it may be Woodware. The dew drops are from E Bay and I coloured them with Alcohol Ink.  The little resin flower is from Prima and the sentiments are from Pink Petticoat.  The paper is from First Edition and I have cut and matted the image using my Nesties.  The image has been distressed around the edges with Scattered Straw DI.

Well that's it for me, enjoy the rest of your weekend and take care xx
