First Tilda Christmas Card

Happy Thursday! Hope you're all doing well upon visiting my blog. I mentioned yesterday that I was finishing another Tilda card and now, I want to present to you, my first ever Tilda Christmas card!!

I don't have any Tilda under Christmas collection, in fact, I only have 3 Tilda stamps. Yes, just 3 (atm lol!), and the 2 stamps just arrived this week so they're still yet to be inked. Most of the Magnolia images that I use here are RAKs from my kind and lovely online friends. :) But to tell you honestly, any Tilda can be a Christmas Tilda!! You just have to give it a Christmasy colour/theme just like what I did with this one. And then of course, complement it with Christmas themed dp or accessories/embellishments and not to forget the sentiment!

I coloured Tilda with Copic markers which I'm not really good at! Haha! I only have limited numbers of Copics so I can't do some shading effect. But I do have other markers like Bic Mark-It which is also good and the ones from the makers of Inque Boutique/See D's stamps which is Whispers markers. Since I acquired Prismacolor pencils, and learning the odourless solvent technique, I seldom use my Copics not unless I want my image to pop-out or to give it some vibrant look.

I experimented on my frame where Tilda is sitting 'coz I wanted to have all the colours of her outfit to be in the frame. I stamped my sentiment (from Kaisercraft) onto my Fancy Pants dsp using Versafine red. I then distressed the edges and inked them with the same ink I used for the sentiment. I then punched 4 holes on the 4 corners of the sentiment paper so that a small green colour would pop out. Finished it off by scattering a somewhat generous amount of Stickles Icicle onto the sentiment panel.

Here's a close up of Tilda...

I'm starting to make Christmas cards now because it takes time to put a handmade card altogether (not to mention creating at least 40-50pcs of it!) LOL! So, the earlier the better. ;-]

Thanks for the visit and may you always feel the love of our dear God surrounding you regardless of life's pressures and trials.

Have a blessed day!

Hugs to all,
