Graduation Tilda

Tilda and Sara Kay

Hey everybody, it's been a while.  And the drama continues!!!  I now find myself with more time on my hands than I really care to have (financially) Eeeeek! Yes, I am currently jobless but extremely hopeful.  Had a good week in the application and response department. So, things are looking up and life goes on; however, please keep a sistah in your prayers.  Okay, enough of the drab crap; on to the goodies.  I've been busy over the last 6-8 months colouring Maggies and a few Sara Kays.  Some of them I have the color swatches made, some I do not because this revelation did not come to me until about 1-2 months ago; that I forgot to write them down, soooooooo sorry.

(Chocolat') Cheyenne

Cheyenne is a Kenny K digi.  I made this card for a friend.  I think I did really well with this one, hated to give it to him (dang-it!) but I did.

The last pic is the inside.  Y'all know I love New Orleans; my friend is from New Orleans and so is his friend; how fitting was this design!  I created the pocket with some scrap cs, the bling is from Michaels and ribbon is from JoAnn's.  I coloured CC with my Copics. 

Graduation Tilda and Edwin

Distress Tech with Copics
I have been trying different techniques.  On the Tilda's and Edwin, I tried the distress look with the Copics, my thanks to Suz Dean for the tutorial.  I feel like I'm moving through grades with the Copics and Maggies.   I did a Graduation Edwin but I guess I didn't download him to the computer (he's trapped in my camera).  I'll add him later. 


Vintage Tilda

Okay, if you are anything like me; when you get a new Maggie you gotta play.  This was one of my first Maggies, got it from the GASC.  And I was just really learning how to shade with the Copics.  The shading isn't that great but it was great playing.  It turned out good, so I decided to keep it.  I made a card front and  eventually I will make it into a full card. 
She is a real doll can't wait to really do something else with her.

Balloon Tilda double pocket card

Tried to be a little creative with Tilda with a balloon.  Decided I would do a double pocket. The tag can be placed in the solid green and purple as well as on the other side of the card shown below; it can be placed in the flower pocket.  I used some of the Liquid Pearl for the flower centers.  The paper I got at JoAnn's.

Easel Card with Ribboned Haired Tilda

I forgot the base front (the stopper) on this card but I was so tired, I never got around to putting it on.  I decided that the velvet ribbon would be enough to hold the card.  Perhaps at a later date (this card is at least 4 months) I shall put something there.  I exhaust myself so with the LO and colouring; I never get around to it.  I rarely give them away and my scrapbook/stamping BFF Lesi will tell you, I surely do not sell them.  I'm always trying to get people to learn how to create them on their own ( I don't have to charge them a rediculous price).  So far no takers, they would rather buy them (go figure)!

New Tildas Seeding Tilda and Gardening Tilda

New Maggies- lovin' num!!!!!!!   The story behind this card is kind of funny.  I was at Lesi's and saw this really pretty paper.  She thought it was the ugly paper and had one of those what the hxxx was I thinking when I bought that paper moment.  At the same time she was teaching me to use my MS scoreboard to make an envelope.  I used the gardening paper to make a scrap  envelope, with no intention on using it for anything but an example (incase I wanted to make matching envelopes for my cards).   Well let me just say, it turned out so good and the paper was sooooo pretty, I couldn't just let it sit there.  I decided after seeing the new Tildas (I think they are from the Rainbow Collection) that I just had to do a card to make that lovey envelope.   Hope you enjoy!

Watering Colouring Tilda and her Bunny

I am so insane sometimes! I kept wondering why my water colouring didn't look anything near what I see y'all do!  Well, in all my infinite wisdom-I realized the key to the whole thing is in the paper.  The WATER COLOURED paper!  Ooh lawdy, sometimes I scare myself.    But after my epiphany, I finally did my first card and y'all it only took me 2 days!!!!!    Had one little issue-where we live, the local big 3 do not carry a too many #1 water coloured or mixed media brushes.  So I used #0 and #2 water coloured brushes.  I am going to try the art store this weekend (for that #1 brush).

I still have a few more cards one of which I designed, but it's late and I have to get up earlier for my new job; which is looking for a job.   I'll try to download the others tomorrow evening or sometime soon.   Again I hope you all enjoy and give me some feedback if you like.
