Tilda with Striped Stockings



I really am enjoying these precious Tilda's from the Magnolia Pink Collection. The moment I spied this Tilda, I knew that I had to have her! It's not too often that I run across Afro-American stamps that I really like. So... when I "run across" some Afro American stamps that catch my eye...I hurry up and buy! (Can I rap or what?!) lol



While browsing the net, I found this unique sketch idea and fell in love with it immediately. I wish that I had wrote down where I got the idea though, I would have loved to thank the person and give them the credit due. If you are looking, thank you for the inspiration and idea for this card!



I colored Tilda in using my Copic Markers and mounted her onto an oval shaped Nestabilities die. The design paper is from Papertrey Ink (Polka Dot Parade) and the card stocks are Papertrey Ink's Stampers Select, SU's Whisper White and SU's Riding Hood Red. To embellish my card, I used SU's corner punch, paper pierce tool, ribbon from Flourishes, Prima X-mas flowers, gold dew drops and gold thread.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!

* tomorrow I want to share some RAKs and gifts with you all...stay tuned:)

Rubbernecker has a few good ones. If you didn't say anything, I wouldn't have even noticed that she is different.
Love her striped stockings. Since you don't remember who's it is, I will take credit for it ;-)

Great job with the card as usual.

Hello Risa! The idea with tying a neat knot when you are attaching charm belongs to talented Leslie http://leslierich.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2008/10/29/poppy-patch-and-tying-a-tag/. I used a golden embrodery thread for this. Sorry, I forgot to write about this.
