MiLady Ballerina Tilda

On Saturday evening a friend and her husband took my dd and me out to dinner and a ballet. I had such a delightful time. The ballet was the Three Musketeers. The leading villain ballerina was so good. She of course was dressed in black so I decided to make a thank you card using ballerina Tilda dressing her in black with gold as was MiLady from the ballet.


I thought she turned out well. I wasn't quite sure if I could capture the dress with the gold sparkles in it but it turned out well. You may not be able to see it that well in this picture but irl it is great. I tried to take a close-up of Tilda but that didn't work so well. Tilda is colored with copics. I had never done a large area black but not a bad job if I say so myself. I could use more shades of gray though. (I could use more copics lol) Then I put dots of crystal stickles and dots of gold stickles all over the dress. The shoes have diamond glaze. There is a rhinestone on the crown in Tilda's hair. After I punched out the border I used the little hearts on the edge of the card and added stickles. There are also stickles in the holes of the border. I added flowers a bow, and some gold fern in the top corner. The ribbon is from Target's see spot save section and the dp is from basic grey Blitzen collection. Hope you enjoy this Tilda as much as I enjoyed making it. Now to get it mailed for my thank you.

I love the blue on black theme and the gold sparkle on her dress is beautiful. The flowers are the finishing touch.

Beautiful Card Peggie! I love everything about it - especially the color choices. I'll bet it's a knock-out in real life because it's drop-dead gorgeous in this picture.

Hi Peggie,
You did an excellent job with the black. The black coloring, I think is the hardest in Copics and DI. I love all the bling you added!

Peggie, I really loved this image! I think the black is the prettiest rendiction I have seen of this stamp. I think the shoes came out especially well. The tiny gold sparkes are so pretty. Would love it if I could do something this well. I haven't shared one yet. Thanks.. Kathie
