Tilda's Town Challenge #121 - Anything Fall

I LOVE FALL COLORS!!!

Actually, I love color in general but I do lean toward bold, fall colors.  My living room and kitchen are painted pumpkin butter, the couch is cranberry red, the recliners are a kind of mossy green and I have bold blue, deep red, gold, brown and orange accents.  I even have a large, red cabinet in the kitchen that holds my cookbooks.  So pretty much all of the colors in my card are in my main living areas.  LOL!
This is Tilda with Cock-A-Doodle-Doo The Rooster.  I have colored this pair with Copic markers, shaded and highlighted with colored pencils and inked everything with Distress Inks.  I cut the cornstalk and fence with the Cricut, the doily, pumpkins, corn and "welcome" are QuicKutz and the grass is a punch by Fiskars.


 Copics used:  Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R20  Hair - E33, E35, E37, E50  Dress - BG10, BG72, BG75, BG78, Y0000, Y11, Y13, Y15  Chicken - YR21, YR24, R20, R22, R24, R29, Y21, Y28  Seed Bag - Colored Pencils  Seed - Y15, Y21, Y28, E31

This is Calista Flockheart, egg layer extraordinaire and greeting card model.  She's looking very shabby at the moment with molting season upon us but it was her coloring that I wanted to mimic for the image.  Molly Hatchit is the shy one hiding behind her.  She will have her chance to model soon.  :)

Tilda's Town Challenge #119 - Creative Fold or Tag

♫ ♪  Over The River and Through The Woods To Grandmother's House We Go  ♫ ♪

That song was playing in my head the whole time I was making this card.  LOL!

This is my DT make for the Tilda's Town Challenges and this week we're asking that you use a Creative Fold or Tag.  I have no idea if there is a name for this type of cut and fold as I just kinda made it up as I went along.  I knew I wanted to create a path with a larger peak at the back and smaller ones in the front.  I went through many pieces of paper trying to get it to look right and be able to fold it flat.
The card is 5 x 7 so it's easy to mail but I had to use two pieces of cardstock glued together to give it a sturdy structure, otherwise it wanted to bow in some places and sag in others.
My images, Welcome To A Sweet Christmas and Edwin's Snowman, have been colored with Copic markers.  All of my die cuts were cut out of white paper and either inked with Distress Inks or covered in holographic glitter (or both).  As usual, the plan changed and this went from being a mostly white design to being quite colorful.

Tilda's Town Challenge #117 - Flowers

Good Saturday Morning My Crafty Friends!

I am finally settling back into a somewhat normal household routine and enjoying the heck out of being back in my craft shed.  Note to self; Don't EVER leave your Copic markers behind again!
Here is my DT card for the Tilda's Town Challenge and our theme this week is Flowers.  I could not resist making another Christmas card because this is the time of year when I'm already getting geared up for the holidays and I'm so excited.
This is Joyful Tilda from the 2012 Christmas Story collection.  I've colored her up with Copic Markers and accented just about everything with Distress Inks.  That gorgeous little kitty is from the DooHickey dies set called Paris Night.  My tag base is another DooHickey die called Tilda's Tag and the gingham bow is hand cut.  I made the poinsettias using Spellbinders dies and used texture paste and holographic embossing powder to accent.  More information on what I used can be found in the supplies list at the bottom of this post.
Copics: Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R20  Hair - E33, E35, E37, E50  Hair Wreath - R22, R24, R29, YG63, YG67  Dress - R01, R22, R24, R29, N0, N2  Serving Set - E30, E31  Cookies: E33, E37
