Teacup Tilly

Hi Everyone.

I have a sweet little card to share with you today.

 The image is 'Teacup Tilly' by Sherri Baldy.  I've coloured her in with copics in my favourite colour combo - pinks with browns.  Faux stitching is used around the card.  A bow made from polkadot ribbon.  Flowers with brad centers.  A little lace on the sides and finally 3 little pearls in the corner.

A Start.


One of my new year's resolutions for 2013 was to step out of my comfort zone and learn to set up a blog so I can participate in my first craft challenge.

This is my first step into blogland.  I have just learnt how to set up this blog.  So, as you can see it still needs a lot of work.  Hopefully one day this little space of mine will look as awesome as some of the great blogs out there.

I mainly set up this blog to showcase the cards I will be making for all the fantastic craft challenges going on.  A newbie on that front too.  Only been paper crafting for about a year on and off and quite frankly am intimidated by all the talent out there.  But what the heck, got to start somewhere right.  Hopefully, as time goes by we will see my blog get prettier as my craft pieces get better. 

So here is the piece for my first ever challenge.

I made a card using a digi stamp from Scrapbook Stamp Society and coloured her in with copic markers.  Am also a copic newbie.  A big thanks to all the experts who posted copic tutorials over the net - it helped me heaps.  Added some mini pearls to her glasses, a doily die cut, ribbon and the card is done.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Besties challenge #1
Scrapbook Stamp Society challenge - Anything goes
One Crazy Stamper January challenge - Anything goes.

Thankyou for stopping by.
