Tilda, Back to school!!! Paying homage to Ali!!!!

Here is another card that I made this weekend inspired by my favourite LifeArtist, the one; the only, Aliiiii Edwards!!!! Yay, whoo hoo, Whoop Whoop!!!! I know I am going a little crazy....I think I have been spending too much time in my scrapbooking room and the Zip Dry fumes are starting to affect me, he he he!!!

No really, I have had so much fun making these cards and they have come together so quickly too. This little Tilda is just too adorable all set to go back to school. I love her sassy little hair cut and her cute outfit. I so wish I could dress like her...what ya think...could I pull it off...nah, I don't think so either, lol!!!!

So, for this card I made the 6X6 base from brown Bazzill Basics cardstock and used my new Ambrosia BasicGrey pp. Ok, I absolutely LOVE this pp!!! It is so gorgeous,OMG!!!! I have been dieing to use my new QK Silhouette apple border digital download (dd)...okay that is a mouthful or a handful,wink! I love the mesh dd they look like Ki Memories lace paper and I love that I can cut it out of any colour paper I want,very cool! I pop-dotted an apple die cut on top of the border to give it a little more dimension. I really like how the apple border turned out! I will defiately use it again!

For the main image, I stamped Tilda on Georgia Pacific paper with Archival Brilliance Black Graphite ink and coloured her in with my Copics. I used white acrylic paint for the highlights and some Sakura stardust pen for some glitter. I also, added a cute QK butterfly rub-on. For the sentiment I stamped my Magnolia label stamp on a scrap of the BG pp and inked the edges. Both sentiments are from an Autumn MM rub-on pack that I have had in my stash forever. Then I stamped the small Magnolia apple in the corner of the sentiment tag and added a little Stickles.

Well, I hope you can come back and visit tomorrow cuz I have something really exciting to share with you...no, its not blog candy yet but that was a good guess!!! I will have blog candy soon when I get a little closer to 5, 000 hits....so stay tuned for the deets on my first ever blog candy....and pop by tomorrow!!!

Thanks for stopping by and havin' a wee look-see!!!!
