Tilda Writing Diary

I just love this little Tilda writing in her diary. Reminds me of my oldest dd as she loves to write in hers. Tilda is stamped on watercolor paper with noir black palette ink and colored with distress inks. As I don't have any reinkers I use a brush some water and take the ink off the inkpad.  I used a white pen to make some highlights in her hair and on her clothes and also to do the doodles around the scalloped nestabilities. Prisma color pencils were used to make something for Tilda to sit on. The dp is from the sweet pea alyssa collection by basic grey. The edges are sewn with white thread. Brads were used do create the center of the flowers.  A bow and some pearl embellashments  finish off the card.

I like the background paper you choose for this card. I have seen this stamp a lot but no one put it on paper with writing on it. Love your coloring this may sound wierd but your card has a calming effect. Way to go!
