Pieces Tilda just for fun

This project I did for my daughter and it was really just a quickie put together. The other night when I had my Magnolia Doohickey's out she minchined to me that the Poinsetta flower die looked like a star fish. I started to think about it and she is totally right it very well could be. So I wanted to play with my watercolor pencils that I am now totally hooked on. I thought why not do something for my daughter as a sweet surprise. 
So I started to coloring the Pisces tilda from the zodiac collection and let the imagination flow. I missed out on the doohickey club vol. 1 so I really was stretching for ideas. Well these little leaves could look like coral or maybe sea weed if I emboss them with the folders. 
I used gold perfect pear mist on the star fish and one of the Doohickey dies from the Oh La La collection vol. 3. The other dies are Spellbinder Triple Tear, and the seahorse is from My Momenta Lot 005177 Sea. I found the seahorse at hobby lobby on clearance one day when I was out shopping and at the time just had to get it. Comes with the embossing to match the cut.
I used lots of destress ink pads and cuttlebug, sizzix embossing folders. I used a Stempelglede stamp that I embossed and then distressed over. Came out pretty cute.

Distress markers: dried marigold, tumbled glass, weathered wood, squeezed lemonade, antique linen, spun sugar, milled lavender, shabby shutters
Derwent color pencils: Brown ochre 57, Golden brown 59, Deep Cadmium 6, Rose pink 18, Deep vermilion 14, Light Violet 26, Gunmetal 69, Olive Green 51, Kingfisher Blue 38, Spectrum Blue 32

Last Teacher Project of the Year

This gift was for my daughters reading teacher. There is a lot of things I did on this one that I really liked. I just loved this school girl Tilda Reading a Book I forgot at the moment what collection she is from. I colored her with copies on the skin and distress markers and prisma. Interesting combination but I was exsperminting and it didn't look bad so I went ahead and used it.
So this is my favorite side, I used the Books w/Wrappers from Spring Summer collection 2008 magnolia stamp. The little Catapillar is from Shabby Princess, and her site is no longer working, but it's a digital download that I have had for a long time. I versa mark the Catapillar and embossed it, I also embossed thee books too match.
Now as you turn the canister you will see these a,e,I,o, & u cards I made. I went too big on them and should have kept them all smaller. I cut them out using spellbinders LG Deckled Rectangles. Since I made them too large this side not my favorite but I did try something different on them after I distressed the cards I used Tim Holtz.... I also embellished with spare part flowers and other stem flowers that I got from hobby lobby.

For this side I used the same sentiment I did on the last one from Create with TLC http://createwithtlc-createwithtlc.blogspot.com/2015/04/friday-freebie-word-art.html

Supplies used that I can remember, I know I am probably missing more but I just wanted to get this post posted. Thanks for stopping by and visiting.

Artists Trading Cards

These ATC is for I Love Rubber Stamps yahoo group swap. The requirements for this swap was Blue, Ribbon and Pearls. I used the Magnolia Tilda Stamping from Adopt A Stamp Collection 2012, Love Heart from the Love 2009 and a miscellaneous Love stamp that I have had for to long to remember where it came from.
The distressed inks I used were faded jeans and Brocken China and then crumpling up card stock and sprayed it with water and dried it out with the heat gun. I then stamped the Love magnolia background stamp on it with versa mark and embossed it with clear powers. I also used stamping up chocolate chip on the bottom half of my ATC. Then I distressed it some more and I added Pear Ex Pigments just to try them out witch I liked  worked a lot like the perfect pearls.
For the ribbon banner I used station that was about about 2" wide so I folded it in half and used a lighter to seal it on the edges and I did this all the way around the ribbon. Then I folded it to the shape I wanted and used the lighter to mold the shape and get it to stay in the shape I wanted. This was supper hard and I was totally unsure if it was going to work. Once it was shaped I stamped it with the stamping up Chocolate chip. I used some lace I got at Hobby Lobby and the pearl flower stickers I found at Walmart that I absolutely LOVE.
Markers: copics: R20, V01, V04, E000, E13, E15, E51, E21, W1 and Prisma Color Pink
For the birds ATC I used paper from Kirby Teesdale Studio pack that were scraps from my other project. I used the stamp Bird Swing from Sylvia Zet collection at Whimsy Stamps. I used all Prisma Colors: Light Cerulean Blue, Cerulean Blue, Ture Green Apple Green, tulip Yellow, Dienna Brown, and Cool Gray 30% I used the same pearl like flowers and some misc ribbon from my stash.

I know these are not the usual ATC you see but I don't do many ATC and these were my first so I think they turned out pretty cute. Anyways, thanks for stopping by my blog and visiting please leave a comment, love to hear what you think.
