MDUC41, OCC and FS166 {Black & White Tilda}

Hi everyone! Today's card is my entry for Magnolia Down Under Challenge #41 (and my entry to Featured Stamper 166, too!). MDUC had set a theme which is "Olden Days". We are to colour Tilda in black, white and greys and the papers to be used are either colourful or with vintage look. My Tilda was coloured with black and different degrees of "greys" from my Prismacolor pencils. I didn't have any problem colouring her skin as she's already white and she has to be black and white. LOL!! Yeah, she should be black and white but I can't help myself so I coloured the bow on her hat with red. I stamped it twice and popped up the 2nd one for dimension. The bow is the only one coloured with Copic marker (Lipstick Red).

The oval background was cut with Oval Nestabilities, sponged with Versafine Smokey Grey and Vintage Sepia then embossed with Cuttlebug Script embossing folder. This card is also a CASE'd of PatSmethers' Comfort of Home card. It was so hard choosing which card to CASE on her gallery as they're all gorgeous and lovely. I ended up CASEing the said card to combine it with MDUC since she used an image of a Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellie and I'll be using Tilda. :)

ETA: I'm also entering this card to Our Creative Corner Challenge - Bows! Perfect timing!

I finished off the card with some Kaiser pearls and a red bow made by Bow Easy!! Honestly, I'm not into ribbons before. In fact, I have lots of satin ribbons being hoarded and were never used but not until Bow Easy was introduced to me - I was given a whole new perspective about ribbons!! LOL!!!
Thanks for looking and for your lovely comments. I really, really appreciate it.
God bless you!

  5. Wow Jhet, what a truly stunning card you have created here. It is absolutely gorgeous. I'm so pleased you liked the little package I sent you. I have tried emailing you, but my computer is having a hissy fit. I can receive emails but cant send them. You asked me about how I colour with my copics. I nearly always start with my darkest colour first, then go to the mid tone and finish off with the lightest shade. I always try and have 3 shades of the one colour. Also the paper plays a huge part in how well the colours blend. The images I sent you are on fabulous paper as are the new ones you got from Sammi. Also, pop on over to Suzanne Deans blog and watch her copic tutorials on youtube. They are extremely helpful. Also, we have some amazing tutorial on the M4M blog. I hope this helps. Hugs xo Jackie
