The Stamp Basket DT - my favourite Tilda again

It's time for my Thursday post on The Stamp Basket blog again, and this week I've used my favourite (for now at least) Tilda... I think she's lovely, and so nice to colour too :o)

Items used from The Stamp Basket
Magnolia Tilda with Wrapped Heart stamp
Magnolia paper - cloudy purple hearts 6x6
Memory Box dies - scalloped posy & madera corner
Craftwork Cards - on the edge scallop card blank

I've coloured Tilda with a combination of promarkers, flexmarkers and prisma pencils.  The panel behind the image is a piece of whitewash core'dinations embossed and sanded - not sure what the embossing folder is called though sorry.  Sentiment is a Penny Black, cut out with Labels 14 nesties and inked with 'London Fog' memento ink while it was still in the die.  Leaves are a woodware punch and the pearl bead is from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Apologies again if I've not managed to visit you yet - I'm trying (and failing!) to catch up with you all... there's just so much to do!  I'll leave you with Dex's pearler for today - he's started playing on the Wii a bit, and we've set him up his own 'Mii' character.  He's very put out about being the smallest character on there and he's actually clearing his plate at the moment so he'll get bigger lol.  Today he said he needed to eat lots of food so he can get a fat tummy like mummy and daddy on the Wii Fit!... ho hum, better get going with that diet!

Hi Lisa, another gorgeous card. Love the colour, embossing and inking.

You made me laugh with Dex's comment - Emily has said things like that many times! She told Peter the other day that he looks a lot like Daddy Pig from Peppa Pig!!! She's also asked if she gets as fat as mummy will she not be able to fit into her clothes either?

Great, eh!!
