Dangling Tilda

I guess I feel a bit like I am dangling tonight. My ds came home from being away for 2 1/2 months this week and then went away for the weekend and now is gone to boy scout camp to work. I'm blue - so I made a pink card to cheer me up.


I think this dangling Tilda from the raising the ceiling collection is so cute. She is colored all in copics with a touch of stickles around the lace and the yoke of her top. Punched holes and inserted eyelets and then the  tied a ribbon for her to hang from. I stamped another hand and glued that over the ribbon. There is a circle charm in the lower corner that has a circle of dp applied to it and then a flower charm on top of that.  Some pearl embellishments on the top corner and a couple of pink dew drops on the bottom. The black dp is from the black tie basic grey collection which is unfortunately retired. The pink dp is from the bittersweet collection by basic grey. The ribbon is from making memories.
Copics used:
Skin E50, E11, E00
Cheeks R20
Top RV 34, R85, RV21, RV23, RV02
Hair E77, E57, E53
Pants W7, W5, W3, W1, 0
Basket E53, E50
Outline BG10, B01

Hope you enjoy! Your comments are always a pleasure to read.

That's very sweet, I like the way you cut out the hand to put over the ribbon, great touch, makes it so much more realistic. I can so identify, I have two at college right now and one going in the Fall, then I"ll be down to may last child at home. :( Makes me sad sometimes too. But playing with our paper dolls helps chase the blues away, doesn't it? Especially when you use such pretty pink colors.

Your card is just wonderful and I love that you made the ribbon pull down a little as if she is weighing it down, while she dangles!

Pam said...

Very Pretty. I like how you put the ribbon throught the eyelet. You live in my favorite state! I was born in Butler and some of the people I love the most in the world are still there.
