Raining Tilda

I originally made this for a pastel card to be submitted to Stamper's Quest but some how it didn't speak pastel to me so I decided to do a different card. I still like this one however.

Tilda is paper pieced and then copics are used to shade her. Spots and lines of white pen are used for accents. The dp is perhaps from basic grey. The words are from an old angel company stamp set. I added the dots with a sharpie black pen. The blue frame was white and then colored with brilliance blue ink pad. The ribbon was then tied around it. The flowers are cut from a die by my favorite things. The dots are sparkly candy dots. The butterfly was from my stash. We are supposed to get rain tomorrow so I may need to borrow Tilda's umbrella. Hope you enjoy.

Hot Mama

My girlfriend just had a birthday and this card is for her. She is 9 months younger than I am but always says she is 30. Let me tell you she is not. lol 

This is a digi stamp but I can't remember who it is by for the life of me. Senility is setting in. This cutie called Hot Mama (that I can remember) is colored with copics. Some stickles are on the flame and the pink frosting. The scalloped circle has holes punched out and dots applied around it. The candy dots in the flower center and below the lace are not quite so blue in real life. Added a bow as well. I need to get this out tomorrow as I am already late. The story of my life. lol

Doctor Edwin

I was asked to make some get well cards for church and this is the first one.

Edwin is colored with copics. His headpiece and stethoscope both have some stickles on them. I cut out an oval and scalloped oval out of basic grey. I lightly traced Edwin on to the white oval and then using a sponge and chalk ink made the blue shadow around him. The words were done on the computer using word art. On the blue circle around the words I wrote the words turn all the way around. Soo... you would knot to turn the circle to see the rest of the words. 

 You can't quite see all the words this time but it says "Listen to your doctor". I measured to find the center of the circles and punched a small hole with a long armed hold punch. Then I figured out where I wanted the words to be and put a small dot on the back of the oval through the hole so I would know where to punch that hole.And attached them together with a brad. The oval is raised with foam tape so the words will turn easily.The button is tied around the ribbon with scrappers floss to make the bow. Three nail head stickers are in the one corner. 

Here is the inside.
Hope you enjoyed this edition of Dr. Edwin. 
As always I love your comments. They mean so much to me.

Soccer Tilda

A girl in mt kids club at church likes to play soccer so this card is for her.I kept it kinda simple because she is a bit tomboyish - that and it was late last night when I was making it and I had to get it out today if it had any chance of making it to her by her birthday. lol

I took Edwin's body from playing soccer and added a Tilda head from a Christmas stamp but can't remember her name. It started out all blue but then I thought it needed a little more color so I added the red background then there was some red mulberry paper laying about so I added it and then put red flowers in the grass to help tie it together. I put some buttons on and added a bow at the bottom. Tilda/Edwin is all colored with copics. Hope you enjoyed my head "transplant."
