My First Tilda


My first Tilda! It only took all day, but, I finally got more and better pics up for you to see.
Tilda has been sitting on my desk all colored up for at least a couple of weeks now and I don't know why I chose to color her dress green, but, I did. I think I had just gotten these colors and thought...Hey, that could be cute. Well, I think I was right about the cute, but I sure had a heck of a time finding the right paper and more so, embellishments, to go with her.
I'm still not sure I'm on board with the blue embellies, but there's a little bit of blue in the Basic Gray paper, so, I thought I'd go with it. What do you think, does it work?
The green cardstock is Bazzill. The cutouts were all done on my Cricut using the Storybook, Plantin Schoolbook, and Once Upon a Princess cartridges. The embossing was done with a cuttlebug...my newest toy...it's about time I got one. The punch is MS, flowers are Bobunny, and ribbon is from my stash.
Here is a close -up of Tilda
I used a new skin color combo on Tilda and I wasn't sure about it at first, but I think it's growing on me. I used E53,51,&50(darkest to lightest) then all over with E000 to add a little pink. Her cheeks were done with R20. Her dress is YG67, G24, &12 (darkest to lightest). Tilda's shoes were done with E49,29,37,&13; I used the same colors on her hair except for E49 and I added a little E33.

Last but not least, this is what it looks like when opened. Well, I think that's all the info I've got.
Oh', I almost forgot, and since were on the subject of Tilda, I wanted to give a big Thank You to the very kind and generous Suzanne Dean! I have won some awesome blog candy from her...Tilda with Spring bundle and a lovely pack of SEI paper!!! I can't believe I forgot to mention it on my blog earlier this week. Anywho, Suzanne was one of the first few people I started following and I just love her stuff! Suzanne is UBER crafty and full of helpful tips too. If you've never checked out her site go here...you won't be disappointed! Thanks bunches Suzanne!
Thanks for looking!
Have a great day!

I think you did a tremendous job!! It's gorgeous! You really have a knack for this don't you? I use the same skin colors as you (excluding E53 but I might try that) and I like it better then the E00, E01's etc although a lot of ladies make those colors look good too. Congrats on your first card! You have nothing to worry about!! :)
