Christmas Tilda in Red at Totally Tilda

Happy Sunday! This is one of 2 posts from me today, so if you're looking for my post for The Ribbon Girl, please scroll down.

Today at Totally Tilda we have a new challenge for you, and it's Christmas Tilda in Red.  So we want to see a Christmas themed card where Tilda is wearing red. I know that some of us have a bit of a love hate relationship with Red, it can be a very difficult colour to work with as it's one of the colours most prone to bleeding.  Well I cheated a bit on her trousers and used some red patterned paper, but I did use red Copics for most of the rest of her.

Colours used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair E42, E43, E44, E47, E49
Top, shading on trousers, socks and presents: R24, R27, R29, R35, R37, R59, E40, E42, E44

As usual I inked all the edges with Walnut Stain and hand stitched them with red top stitch thread.

i mounted her on a Snowflake Doily and I thought this ribbon went very well.

I used some beautiful flowers, berries and cones, and dabbed them with a little white acrylic paint for a snowy look.

Papers used are from an older Maja collection.
