blue + green tilda

 It's been awhile since I brought Tilda out for some air, so here she is today
 ~ Ü ~

 Generally based on the sketch at Sunday Sketch & Stamp, I've used the colours from Magnolia-licious Challenge, which are blue, green & white/clear. There is a hint of pink in the background, so I'm also linking up to Crafts & Me Challenge #57.

Tilda has been coloured with coloured pencils and aqua brush. Her frame and brickwall she sits on has been embossed, so it fits challenge #42 at Charisma Cardz. There is also plenty of layering, so I'm linking up with Top Tip Tuesday.
Today's tip is a thrifty one. When you're misting smaller pieces or die cuts, line the surface with white paper. And move the pieces around if you're misting more than once. This backing sheet makes a great background for other projects. And you can even blend on distress inks to tweak the colour for a unique shimmery background.

I've added this pretty butterfly for balance & added interest, so it now plays at Flutter by Wednesday #176. Other more general challenges include Lollipop Crafts (#53 no sentiments), Pollycraft Monday Challenge (115 girls, girls, girls), and the anything goes challenges at Shelly's Images TTT & KB Cute Monday.

Thanks for stopping by!
