Colouring Red Tilda

Hi everyone thank you to my new follower Yone I am so excited to have you on board :-) I have a card for you today. My dear friend Alethea came down to craft on Monday night and I coloured Tilda in then. I am really pleased how she turned out considering I coloured her at night without my Ott- Lite. I am amazed at the difference this light makes at night time. I received it as a free gift when I got my new sewing machine. Well here she is
I am entering her in the Make It Colourful Challenge which is Colour It Red I have used the following Copics on Tilda
Hair- 100, C1, C7
Skin-E000, E00, E50
Umbrella-Paper Pieced
Coat- R22, R27, R59
Dress- R20, R22, R27
Thongs- C1, C7
Socks- C1
Branck- E25
White Sigma Pen for blossoms and lace

I used black, white and red cardstock and Kaiser Paper 'Sakura Park'. I then cut the swirl using the Cricut Cartridge 'Serenade' and then I stamped the white swirl using the Kaiser stamp 'Oriental'. I have mounted Tilda on black cardstock that I embossed using the 'Divine Swirl' plate. I am so pleased with my red colouring here is a close up.


  1. This card turned out fantastic!! I still haven't finished my card!! It's still missing something!!!

  2. You did a fabulous job coloring those reds and the shading on the Kimono is excellent! The embellishment on the card is great texture and those flourishes are a nice touch. Thanks for playing along in the Make it Colourful challenge this week. :D
