Write a Message Tilda

Happy Monday everybody!
I hope y'all are ready to face the week head.  It has been chilly and cold here in Chicago over the past few days but we are hoping to warm up by the end of the week. This polar vertex is really making it's mark here.  Brrrrr.....

I have a tag today and I used Write a Message Tilda 
from the Lost and Found Collection.  And guess what...I used Copics to color Tilda! It has been a while since I used Copics for Tilda and I felt so rusty and disoriented.  I attempted to dip a Copic marker in a cup of water after laying some color. Ha! Good thing the cup was empty!

The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts


I am hoping to color more Tilda's using Copics again.  This was one of my New Years resolution and I hope I can really get comfortable with Copics as I am with Distress Ink Reinkers.

Anywhoo...thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciate every time to pop over, and especially when you let me know you were here.

Have a wonderful day and see you again soon!

Tilda with Spring Heart

Happy Friday everyone!
I'm back with a card from the Lost and Found Collection.
This is Tilda with Spring Heart.  Isn't she just adorable? She is part of the Stamp Club Kit and she has been a favorite of many crafters including me!
This collection is available in most webstores/stockist now.

She is colored with DI Reinkers and I used some Crackle Accents for the hearts. Around the image, I used some Shabby White Frantage

The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The frame is air dry clay and the letters are also painted with Crackle Accents.


Here's a view where you can see Crackle Accents on the hearts and the letters. 
I love the buttons.

These are the DooHickey Dies I used.

Thank you for visiting me today! I hope to see you again soon.
Have a great weekend!

That's "hi" in Russian! I think it's pronounced "privet" or something like that!

I want to share with you a card I made using Matryoshka Tilda and masked with the Mocsow Cathdral, both from the Little Moscow Collection. Isn't she adorable? 
Just behind my card is my own Matryoshka or Russian Nesting doll. I had this Matryoshka for almost 20 years now.

 As usual, I colored the image using DI's and I made a mistake when I colored the red tower. I didn't have enough patience to let it dry so I messed up the colors and red was my last coverup the ugly mess.

Here's another  look at the Russian Nesting Dolls.  This one actually has 20 (yes, 20!!) dolls nested inside but I just took out 3.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.  
I started this year quite busy but I promise to catch up with my blogging.
Thanks for all your support and for hanging in there with me!
