You are a Special Person

Yip... that you are...lol   Thank you for popping by to see what I have created today.  I spent a wonderful morning crafting up a storm yesterday, whilst the workmen were installing an Aluminum awning above my backdoor.  The weather is cold and just perfect for staying indoors.

I received Tilda with Cross Necklace a few weeks ago from Sir Stampalot.  She is a delight to colour.  I have been viewing some of Suzanne Dean's Copic Colouring Video's on You Tube and I can see the difference in the colouring of this Tilda.  Let me know what you think, will you?  Here she is before I placed her on a card.

Can you see how much more colour and shading there is?  She doesn't look like a pale child anymore. I think I have also managed to give the creases in her legs (ankles) a bit more definition.  I am absolutely thrilled with this result! Practice, practice, practice is what it takes.

Recipe for this creation
Image: Tilda with Cross Necklace, a purchase from Sir Stampalot

And one final pic.  I absolutely love her... she is such a cutie. 

Wishing you a fabulous Sunday.

Hi sweety,

what a beautiful coloring, you're totally right. Tilda has more depth and her hair is also beautiful.

Gorgeous card!

Oh yes, your colouring here is absolutely awesome! I should check out those tutorials as I still have a long way to go with my colouring - some days I can get it how I want it and others I just can't!
Like you say, it is all down to practice :-)

Hugs, Kat xx
