Good crafternoon crafters,
Who does that sound like? Anyway, hello to you all and a special hello to my new followers. Welcome to my blog, hope you enjoy visiting and thankyou.
Today's card is a tilda rocker. I felt like doing a bit of colouring, (one day I may grow up) so I stamped Tilda out several times and used different colourways to colour her in. I never know what colour card I'm going to make until the urge takes me, so to speak. The one I chose in the end is pink and lilac.
The rocker and all the layers are made with spellbinders grand large scallop, I offset each layer this time to make it a bit different. I stamped with memento ink and used promarkers to colour the image in. I just love these pens, even more since I bought some fine tips. They make it so easy to get light and shade. Some stitching detail was added around the smallest layer and Tilda was mounted with foam to give dimension. The backing paper is from the tulip and friends range and the sentiment from cardart. The edges of all the other layers were distressed with Tim Holtz milled lavender and I added a bit of glitter, flowers and ribbon from my stash.
I had to do a variation on the design of the this rocker, my daughter said that the one I sent her wouldn't stand up. I told her not to stand it on a shiny surface, but she said it still kept laying down.
So I cut a piece of the same white card I'd used for the main rocker base and attached it inside the card to the front and back. It worked a treat. No more Bambi on ice.
Put a crease in the middle and fold it in on itself and the card lies flat for posting. Now the only thing I have to do is decide what to do with all the other Tilda's. I suppose I could make four more different coloured rocker's. :)
Aren't they cute.
