Pie Tilda

Hi all -- happy Monday. Well it's almost Tuesday. So it's really almost the middle of the week. Wow, that went fast!

So I got my package from Stamp & Create last week, & I could NOT wait to ink up this cutie~

This is Pie Tilda -- although I see no pie. But I love her anyway (although I'd love her more if she had pie!) I also used my bench stamp for the first time since I bought it last year. I really thought I would use that more. Hmmm maybe it's because my stamp area has become total chaos & I forget what I have. I had organized it at one time .....but I'm usually spent by the time I finally finish a card so I just leave it be till I can get around to cleaning it up ..... which is usually never ....

ANYWAY --- I stamped her onto Cryogen Shimmery White paper (thanks Dianne, for reminding me how awesome this paper is with Copics!) I hate masking -- so I cut Tilda out (she almost got a new 'do -- it wasn't easy cutting around those piggie tails!) & set her on the bench. I was really excited to use my new Butterfly Circles Nestie that I got ON SALE at Joann today ~ I' hadn't bought any Nesties in a while, I couldn't decide which to get! Papers are DCWV Old School -- sentiment is Papertrey Ink -- 

I was hoping to catch the glimmer of the paper -- but let's face it I'm a stamper not a photographer!

And can I just say -- I'm trying really hard to use grays more when coloring -- I know it's how you get really good shadows -- & I've read the tutorials -- but I just can NOT use that much gray, lol. It turns out great for others -- but my hand just won't let me add as much gray as I should -- I'm really trying -- it looked like I added a lot when I was coloring this -- but I see now that I really didn't. I feel like I'm ruining the image if I add too much gray. It's all a learning process...

I'm entering this into these challenges:

Just Magnolia -- Use a doily (store bought or die cut)
Totally Tilda -- Tilda with die cuts & punches
Simon Says Stamp -- Use 3 different papers
Papertake Weekly -- Get Krafty

Thanks for visiting!
