Windblown Tilda

April can be a very unpredictable month around here. I'm speaking weather-wise! We have had some days in the 70's and 80's, but this weekend it had been cold and rainy. Kind of reminded me of this Tilda image, so I thought I would share this card.

Done in a simple style, I colored Tilda with Prismacolor pencils, added a couple of rectangles of designer papers (don't know where they are from offhand!), and a little oval tag with a Hero Arts sentiment.

It will warm up again...as Mark Twain always said:
"If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes."

Pam, beautiful card. I have this Tilda image too but never got around to colour her up. Oooh, I love how you colour with your prismas. Beautiful job with those coloured pencils. I’d like to try one day. The soft colours gave this card a calming mood to me somehow, even with those blustery wind blowing. Terrific job on the card. Love it.

Hugs.
