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I originally made this for a pastel card to be submitted to Stamper's Quest but some how it didn't speak pastel to me so I decided to do a different card.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