Celebrate the Moment



Happy TGIF Everyone! Finally I was able to color one of my new Tildas I recently ordered :-) But before I show it to you I would like to let you know that the new Whimsy Inspirations Magazine is available to view online, as always it's for free! :-)


If you like to get a printed version of the magazine you can pre-order ii next week in the Whimsy Store.

Now onto my card for today. This stamp is called 'Tilda With Spitz Pocket' (I think) and is from the 'Special Moments' collection.

I colored Tilda with my Copics (scroll further down for a list of colors) and also tried a new coloring cardstock. Well new to me that is. But I must say I don't like too much. If you are like me and building up color in lots of layers this cardstock is no good. After just a few layers it wont take any color anymore and the surface gets sticky with lots of built up. Also the color seems to sit on top of the paper and is not drying for a very long time. Which means it gets smeary and you have to be very careful not to touch it. The cardstock I was testing is from The Paper Temptress and called Heavenly White. 


Copics/ShinHan used:
Hair & Shoes: E21-25-29
Skin: E000-00-21-11-R20
Dress & Socks: V000-01-04-06-09, TouchTwin: YR33-Y35-Y38


The sentiment is from Whimsy's Birthday Letter Seals. Dies I used are from Joy Crafts! (butterfly border and butterfly) Magnolia (flower) Spellbinders (circle nesties) and Whimsy (tag on envelope). Flowers are from WOC, the grid mesh ribbon is from embellishments.de and the papers are Basic Grey 'Plumeria'. All other embellishmetns are from my stock and the violet pearls are made with a Viva Decor pearl pen.

The inside is decorated to match the outside.



I also made a matching envelope with a string closure. These are perfect for the more bulky, 3D style cards.



 

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend!
