Hello Again All You Crafty People,
Sorry, this is my only post today, I made three cards last week and was all carded out lol!
Anyhow, I have masked the special edition "Tilda With Poppy" with the barbed wire fence stamped from the Tilda summer memories collection. Both Are stamped with Mocha Memento Ink.
Both are coloured with distress inks and I have coloured the face, skin and hair with promarkers. My favourite colour of all of the distress inks is Victorian Velvet and it is the main colour for Tildas clothes. I have used blush, baby pink, sunkissed pink and pastel pink for the skin and for her hair I have used Tan, Satin and Sandstone. The Background is coloured with a mixture of greens and brown distress inks.
The papers are magnolia Tilda and pearlised card stock. I have used some lacey leaves,pearl sprays, marabou feather, punched distressed butterfly and one of my hand crafted pearl pins. The large handstitched bow, has a metal brass button stitched to the centre. The majority of my florals are from either the ribbon girl or wild orchid crafts. I have also added little gems to the hair as bobbles and a large pearl in the middle of the flower!
I hope that you like it and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Take care, Huggles

Hello Again Everyone,
Unfortunately I've still got gremlins in my pc! So apologise for the picture quality, as I cant seem to improve the clarity, as I would normally do.
I have made this easel card over a few days, I found alot of Tilda papers in a box that I had misplaced and was thrilled to bits when I found them again, ( I really must tidy my craft room more often lol) so I have used two pieces with this card.
Tilda was coloured with promarkers and copics. Her skin is promarkers in Blush, Baby Pink, Pastel Pink and Sunkissed Pink, her clothes, shoes and hat are coloured with copics in a mixture of Aqua, Aqua Blue, Frost Blue & Pale Blue Grey, with a dab of stickles around the hat.
I have used a distressed martha stewart border on the left hand side and a beautiful glittery feather butterfly on the right, as I think it compliments the over colour scheme and they are really lovely, with a little wooden body.
The distressed tilda tag reads, "Now that your in full bloom your hat should be too", which I think is a great coming of age sentiment. There is an additional distresed oval die cuts to the base for personal messages, embellished with distressed punches foliage and pearl centres.
I have also wrapped the top layer of paper around twice with baby blue lace and made a blue organza bow, with sparkley brad and a rainbow charm, suspended from a silver chain.
As usual, all my beautiful florals are from either the ribbon girl or wild orchid, as are the metal corners and ribbon and I've used one of m yown hand made hat pins.
I hope that you like my card, have a good week.
Take Care and Big Huggles Jay x

Hello All You Crafty People Out There, Thank Goodness Its The Weekend!!!
Sorry its late, I seem to be having probs with my pooter today and I will be having a busy weekend, as I will be adding some of my cards to ebay too, so I hope the gremlins in my pc, have a rest for a while!
Anyway, to my card, This little cuties is a favourite of mine, soo adorable, she is Tilda with comfort blanket and I have coloured her with promarkers and copics. I have been using Prisma Pencils alot with my other cards, but I always like to do this Cute Tilda with Copics, the colours are:
Copics (Dress) Rose Pink and Pale Pink, Her Shoes are Frost Blue & Aqua Blue. The Bows in her hair are Light Rouge, Lipstick Red and A Bit Of Crimson. The cute little blanet is a mixture of mallow, lilac and Heath copics.
The papers are all magnolia Tilda and the majority of the flowers are from either Wild Orchid Or The Ribbon Girl, who also sells Wild Orchid flowers in smaller quantities, which is great if you would like to try out some of Wild Orchids flowers.
All the die cuts are also magnolia doohickeys, leaves, tags, heart swirls and butterfly, all distessed with Ranger Distress Inks. The Tilda Backgroud has been cut using a spell binders die and also distressed.
I have added one of my hand made pins to break up the colour a little and a contrasting black bow with a metal and pink crystal brad. The Sentiment is a wood mounted stamp from Sir Stampaot, which I have stamped a tag and decorated it with tiny butterlies with pearl bodies.
I hope that you like it, Thank you for dropping by to take a look!
Enjoy the Weekend, Big Huggles Jay x

I finished this card today, it is a very simple design with lots of goodies added to create a bit more detail.
I have coloured the image with prisma pencils, using the low odour solvent technique and pro markers for the hair and face and added beautiful Florals from the ribbon girl and wild orchid craft.
The large bow from the ribbon girl is embellished with a beautiful diamonte flower, which I have stitched into place. The Cute Teddy Charm, is from my personal stash of goodies and I had added one of my hand made pins to the top floral selection.
The papers are really lovely and are premium lightly glittered and I think they are from the boho chic collection, which I have had for a while and was keen to use. I have punched the edges with Martha Stewart loop punch ( punch around the page).
I decided not to add a sentiment to this card, as I usually do, as it I just dont think that it needs one and just wanted to keep it simple.
I would also like to thank Jen, as Jenny's crafty corner, for her blogging tips.
I have had fun using the two whimsy stamps featured on my blog and I hope that you like this simple card.
Take care and enjoy the rest of your week.

Take a look in the side bar, there is a picture of a card that I have made previously using this stamp.
As Promised in my last post, here is the first of my whimsy cards.
I am working on the second one and should hopefully post it in the next day or two.
I have stamped this cute whimsy with daffodils image, with cocoa ink, which I think gives a more realistic skin effect than black ink, although black also has it merrits lol!
I have coloured her skin and hair with promarkers Blush, Baby Pink, Sunkissed Pink, Satin, Tan and Sandstone. I coloured the Clothes & Shoes with prisma pencils, in:
Mulberry PC995, Parma Violet PC1008, Lilac PC956, Grass Green PC909, Light Aqua PC992, Aquamarine PC905 and Apple Green PC912 & Process Red PC994 (Daffodils) again using the low odour solvent technique, that I have started using again recently.
The Ribbon and majority of my florals are from Wild Orchid Crafts & The Ribbon Girl, both of which are some of my favourite on line stores.
The papers are magnolia tilda and bazzil card stock, which has a really lovely linen texture to it.
I have added chipboard letters, metal flower brad and a couple of my own handcrafted hat pins, both with metal spacer beads and Stamped 2 Magnolia Tickets With Cocoa Ink.
All Elements Are Distressed With Ranger Distress Inks.
I hope that you like this card and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
