Easter Tilda

Hello and Happy Spring Everybody!!!   Life is GOOD!!!  I got a few days off and instead of washing windows like I should be doing~~guess what???  I decided to be creative (I do clean well when pressed for time--Hee hee)  I made a Magnolia Easel card.  Hope you enjoy Miss Sweet Tilda~~~Smiles

I just love these easel cards myself!!!  I colored Miss Sweet Tilda with my copics and I am really starting to experiment more and more with light sourcing on the images.  I saw on SCS newsletter that somehow you could dry emboss a frame around image---well I have to tell you the first time I tried~~TOTAL SCREW UP~~I embossed image instead of border~~~Silly Me; brain inside out--soooo I shook my head and did figure it out (LOL).  That is why on the inside tilda you may slightly see dry embossing throughout image :)  She is still so darn cute:))))  I used lime green stickles on the dress ruffle, on her hair bows, on sentiment and on the centers of flowers and buttons on inside.  Distressed dry embossing and all layers using SU spots~~ applying with a makeup brush that I do not like for my face (Hee Hee) For shine and glimmer I used Twinkling H20's on flowers and tilda's shoes--little too much on shoes~~another lesson for me today (lol)!!!!
