Stamp Something Challenge

Good Morning again! This is too many posts in one day (tee-hee!) but if I don't get
this new little Tilda card entered into the drawing over for the Stamp Something Challenge today, I'll be too late!


I was drooling over the beautiful Distress Ink coloring over at Kim Piggot's blog yesterday, and I decided to to try it out again, now that I have some hot press watercolor paper. I think Tilda looks like she was out picking her flowers in sub-zero temps, but I'll work on my technique for faces as time goes on! Kim has a wonderful tutorial on her site, and there are a couple of others that have helped me on YouTube.

The recipe:

Tilda with flowers
SU! sentiment
Speckled cardstock
(source unknown, it came from a friend who meant to get all white)
Core-dinations yellow dots
Pink/yellow gingham--Paper PizazzSU! cardstock--Pink Passion
scraps of hot pink and yellow cardstock
Distress Inks--Ranger
Stickles--stardust
Ribbon, buttons, scrap fabric and pins--my stash
That little shimmery square of fabric behind Tilda is a sample from a company that sells flag-making supplies. I got it years ago when my daughter's Girl Scout troop was making a flag for a winter camping competition in which they participated. I save all sorts of random things!
another little detail that didn't translate well on camera is the icy Stickles on the flowers.
