Scrapbook Tilda says..."Let's Crop!" Friday Sketchers # 21!!!

I bet ya didn't know Tilda was a scrapbooker, smile! Well, she is one crafty girl, let me tell ya, lol!

I have been musing about this card all week. So, when I got home from work yesterday afternoon, I hopped on the computer to see what the FS sketch looked like. Fabulous!!! Another great sketch by Mumur! It was the perfect fit for my idea to turn Tilda with Pencils into Scrapbook Tilda!!!

I cut a 6x6 card base from some Kraft cardstock and inked all the edges with my all time favourite chalk ink, ColorBox Cat's eyes in Chestnut Roan. I then riffled through my pp and decided to use this Scenic Route paper that I absolutely love but haven't really used on my cards. I struggle using my 12x12 pp on cards as the scale of the pattern is so large but this pp worked out really well. I like the text that is on the pp and really wanted the "art happens" to show through!

I stamped Tilda's desk aka "scrapbook table" on Georgia Pacific paper with my new Memento ink, Tuxedo Black. (I am still adjusting to it after using Archival Brilliance for so long but I think I am going to like it with my Copics, although I wasn't so sure at first.) I masked the apple by covering that portion of the stamp with some low tack painters tape. I had to take a black fine tip pen and touch up some of the lines on the book but it turned out pretty good! I then stamped Tilda with Pencils too and coloured both with my Copics and added highlights with while acrylic paint.

Then I pulled out the plastic container that I keep all my Melissa Frances Rub-ons in and found some leftover "scrapbooking" rub-ons that were just perfect! I did a little hacking here and there to get them just right and well, I think they make the card come together! I love the little glue bottle and scissors...too cute! To follow the sketch that Mumur made I needed an accent of some kind at the bottom. Then it came to me...Tilda needed scrapbooking luggage, of course!!! I know, I have a ton of supplies that I lug with me to crops and scrapbooking retreats and Tilda, well, she is no different! I cut the tote out of co-ordinating pp on my Silhouette (just love that I can adjust the size to my needs) and cut the little tag from a QK 2x2 die and wrote Tilda's name on it!
I added some velvet ribbon, Stickles here and there and a few MM small flower brads to finish it off!!!!
So, I think this card is just so cute I may have to plan a crop and send a few of these cards to the members of my scrapbooking posse, lol!!! I know I would love to get an invite to a crop from Tilda!!!
Thanks for stopping by and havin' a wee look-see!!! I hope you have fun scrapbooking or stamping or doing something crafty today!!! I, unfortunately, will not be. I am off to Toronto with my best friend and co-worker, Donna, to attend a workshop on Skopos Translation Theory...sound exciting...not really, eh!? Well, I am actually interested in it and hope to learn a lot!!!
Oh, Don't forget to check out my blog candy!!! Let me know your 5 favourite things that you use or do when you're crafting!

OMG-how absolutely adorable!!!! I really need to get some of these "copics" you all talk about because your coloring is perfect! I am brand new to cardmaking-exactly why I love to look at all of your blogs-it kinda tells me what I might need to get! I'm not sure what makes Copics the best-but they must be.....TFS!
