Bright Tilda



I have seen several cards lately with nice bright colors and with all the rain, snow and cold dreariness of this Winter I ran out and bought a paper pack about as bright as can be! So here is my little Tilda sitting on a bench "delighting in life". I sent this card to my February Mingle partner on the magnolia-licious yahoo group. I hope it brightens her day! I thought I would try stamping and coloring on colored card stock. This is (I think) - marigold morning (remember that In-Color from SU?!) and I colored it with the SU water color crayons, even the blush color worked. I was pleasantly surprised that the colors covered the yellow card stock :) Then I sponged the edges. I used my new flower border punch from Martha Stewart - thank you Lisa for the 60% off coupon, woo hoo! I will make something other than easel cards again someday, thanks for stopping by!

Oh how cute! I never would have thought that colouring on coloured cardstock would turn out so well! How very pretty!
