Happy Tilda

I should have been working on my Holiday Wednesday card but I had this Tilda made and she kept calling to me to finish her. Maybe I'll get to my Holiday card tomorrow or maybe I'll take a week off who knows.

Can't you see just how happy she is running through the flowers. Tilda is colored with copics but her clothes are paper pieced and then shaded with copics. The flowers and grass are stamped with distress ink and then lightly wet so the ink would spread just a touch.  The dp is two scoops from basic grey. The paper flowers centers' are done with glitter glue and e-beads. The flower sun is done with grosgrain ribbon, a button and scrapper's floss. Tilda's lace has stickles applied as does her neckline. The lace behind Tilda is from making memories.
copics used:
Skin E50, E11, E00, E02
Cheeks R20
Top RV13, Roo
Hair E57, YR61, YR31
Trim on top Y17
Pants BG05, BG49, BG10
Shading W1, BG10, B00, 0
Hope you enjoy Tilda as much as I enjoyed making her.
I made Tilda to enter a couple of challenges:
