Autumnal Rose Garden Tilda

Good morning folks, I hope you all enjoyed your Saturday.  There was no lie in for me yesterday as I was up bright and early to get to the post office first thing, but I did get a lot done as I had lots of time to do it in.

I managed to get my DT card for next week all finished and blogged up ready to be scheduled and had enough time to do a bit more work on an ongoing project AND make a card for some challenges and I even got shopping and some housework done too, get me!!

Anyway here's the card I made.

I decided to go with a kraft base as I thought that gave it a nice autumn feel and I chose some paper by Maja from their Shall we have Coffee collection.  The colours made me think of autumn berries.

All the papers have been distressed and then the edges inked with distress ink in Tea Dye. They've all been stitched with Top Stitching thread in Nutmeg.

The watering can and flower seed packet come from a Pion  Vintage Garden - Seed Packets sheet.

The stamp I used is Rose Garden Tilda by Magnolia.  I've coloured her with my Copics as usual, I chose the colours to go with the paper and because I thought that they were lovely autumnal colours (some of the challenges I wanted to enter were based on using autumn colours).

Copics used were:

Skin: E000. 00, 11, R11, 20
Hair:  E11, 17, 19
Clothing & Flowers:  V91, 93, 95, 99, YR 20, 23, 24, E51, 53, 55

I used 4 different dies, Heart Border by La La Land Crafts, the leaf is from Leaf and Swirls by Magnolia (both from Bunny Zoe Crafts) and a plain and decorative Spellbinders nestie.

Lilac roses and rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts, bling was old stuff from my stash and all other ebellies were from The Ribbon Girl.

I decorated the inside to complement the outside.

I do hope you enjoyed my share today, I had such fun making her and I'm popping her into my Etsy store.
