My first ever Tilda!! & OCC challenge

This is the first time I have had a chance to use a Tilda image and I am so excited. I do not do her justice at all. When looking at all the lovely blogs out there and all the talented people coloring in Miss Tilda, mine looks pretty..., well blah is the only word I can think of. Then again it's not that easy to make her look great when using bic markits and sharpies. I did receive 3 elovely copic markers a couple weeks ago but not in colors I wanted to use on Tilda. (note to self I need to buy more of those!!) While coloring her I also discovered there is not a sharpie or bic marker in flesh tone! At least not one in the collection of them I own so I had to color her skinwith good old crayolas! The paper is WRMK that I have had for awhile, the flowers are bazzill and prima and I was able to get a martha stewart border punch!! I added some sparkle paint to the large flower and think I liked it better before.

I liked the colors for the OCC color challenge this week but don't have the su colors so I think these are pretty close and hope they work. Love this color combo but don't think to use it often.

Well it's off to the grocery store. I don't know about anyone else but I absolutely loathe going to the grocery store. I spend countless hours and dollars there only to get home and sometime in the week realize what I had planned to make I still need something from the store to make or to hear someone in my family say " I don't want that". But if I don't go soon they will have to eat peanut butter with a spoon, because that's all that will be left, lol.

Have fun crafting without me.
