Cherry Tilda

I challenged myself to not only use buttons but to have them be something besides just decorations. Here they are cherries because Tilda has cherries on her blouse and boots.

Tilda is colored with copics, almost a given. The leaves are from a very old the angel company stamp set called apples and bugs. The swirls are also from an angel company stamp set called swoops and swirls and stamped with marvy red ink. On Tilda's blouse, jumper and hair ribbon there are bits of stickles as well on the swirls in the corners. The center is done with #3 Nestabilities labels. I hand drew the stems for the cherries. I know I have great artistic talents to draw cherry stems. LOL. The boots have diamond glaze applied. Tilda is popped up with foam tape. The dp is from the boxer collection by basic grey. 
Here is a list of the copics I used.
skin: E00, E02, E11, E21, E50
Cheeks: R20
Dress: R22, R24, R27, R29
Blouse and Boots: BG10, B00
Hair Y00, Y31, E57
Leaves: YG06, G07, G14
If you haven't taken a peak at the blog post below please do. It really was a work of heart.
