Congratulations Kelly! I’ve dropped you an email to get your address details so Tilda can find her way to you.
I’ve got some colouring to do this weekend for a new releases that are on the horizon from a couple of my favourite companies. First though, I need to nurse the bump I have on my head from banging it on a kitchen cabinet…*sigh* Hope you’re all having a less accident prone weekend than me!
I’m definitely pleased with today’s card. I’m quite taken with Tilda’s hair in this image, and it turned out beautifully when coloured using the “No Lines” colouring technique. I love the clean lines in the image, and how striking it looks against the background. Plus, Tilda is really just looking pretty adorable.
I have an extra, brand new, Tilda with Big Tulips stamp, which I’d like to giveaway as a little thank you to my readers. All you have to do to enter the giveaway draw is comment on this blog post (no other requirements, and you do not need to have a blog to enter). I will draw a winner on Friday 1st February 2013, so get your comments in before 9am GMT that day.
I stamped the image with Adirondack Lake Mist (I stamped it lightly first on scrap paper so that the stamped image came out really light) on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (details below).
Last year I posted a video on No Line Colouring, along with a step by step tutorial over on Splitcoast Stampers. The main difference here is that I coloured the background first for a bolder look (similar to my Whimsy Stamps Santa and Teddy Portrait card and also my Lollyrot card).
The designer paper is from an old My Mind’s Eye 12×12 collection (check me out getting the paper stash used up) and I inked the edges with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. The edges of the diecut image layer were inked using a Versamagic Chalk Ink in a blue to match the background colouring, just to finish off the edges nicely. The chipboard embellishments are Make it Crafty Butterfly Leaves, and I coloured them with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers in some of the same greens I used on the image.
Thank you for dropping by and checking out my card! I always love to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to leave a comment. I do try to answer any questions, so if you have any don’t be afraid to ask!
One of my goals this year is to use more of my stamp collection. I am guilty of having a huge stash of stamps which either haven’t seen ink or have hardly seen ink (and I know I’m not alone in this). I started stamping and cardmaking because I enjoyed it, something that has been a little lost in the mix/general hectic rush of the past couple of years. Time to get back to enjoying my stamp collection!
So, here’s my first Magnolia Stamps card of the year! I have a large collection of Magnolia stamps, which may come as a surprise since I rarely blog anything featuring them. I’ve already got another Magnolia card scheduled for later in the week, so I’m making progress.
Isn’t Wild Tilda adorable?
Love that costume. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers. Once again the designer paper is from an old Crate Paper collection and I inked the edges with Distress Ink in Tea Dye. I diecut “Hey Tiger!” using MFT Die-Namics High Rise Alphabet Lower Case.
Thanks for stopping by, catch you tomorrow with another card!

About Shinhan Touch Twin markers:
Designed for artists, Touch Twin markers feature an advanced alcohol-based ink formula that ensures rich color saturation and coverage, with silky ink flow. Touch Twin Brush markers feature two nibs (Brush & Chisel) to achieve a wide range of strokes, from fine lines to wide color fills. The delivery of ink flow can be perfectly controlled to allow precision drawing. The ergonomically designed rectangular body is roll resists rolling on work surfaces and provides a perfect grip that avoids smudges and smears. A specially designed safety cap stacks neatly and prevents damage to the nibs. The Touch Twin marker contains an alcohol-based ink that doesn’t dissolve printed ink toner, allowing for odorless, vividly colored artwork on printed materials.
