Tilda Playing Hopscotch  


Hello cyber-friends!

I wanted to make a birthday card for a sweet friend of mine, Emily, so I decided on this darling image of Tilda Playing Hopscotch from the new Sweet Rainbow collection.

I have been oogling cards around the web that have used oms & colored pencils on kraft paper.  I LOVE the look of that technique! Now, an artist I'm not, so don't get your hopes up!  But this is my first attempt at coloring on kraft paper using oms & colored pencils...

I used SB's Deckled Rectangles to cut out the image and the Doohickey Swirl Die.  I stuck a doily behind Tilda and added some Prima and WOC flowers.  The ribbon was salvaged from something or another and I used a SU scallop punch for the panel behind Tilda.

A closer view of my mad coloring skills! hahaha

The inside sentiment "Happy Birthday" is from SU and the circular sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!

I really how you took the easel card and made it "backless." What a great idea!

Cassy, this is gorgeous. Isn’t Tilda just adorable? You’ve beautifully coloured her on that kraft paper with your coloured pencils. You make me want to try that too. And it’s an easel card to boot—my fave. Gorgeous flowers and I just love swirls.
Thanks for coming over to play with us at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.

Kraft paper/cs is a trend and you used that CS very well on this card, with Tilda! Luv your coloring, and other colors you coordinated with:-)
