Friday Sketchers Challenge #51

I love to play along with Friday Sketchers. They always come up with such great sketches and great samples. Here is the sketch for last Friday...

...and here is my card...

Stamps: Tilda in Cherry Dress, Large Cherries, Best Yet
Ink: Memento, Copics, Always Artichoke
Paper: DCWV (textured cardstock and Nana's Nursery)
Embellishments: Prima’s, Gems

I used stick-on gems for the flourish in the top left corner. I also used some gems for the center of the flowers to carry on the theme. I distressed the edge of the white cardstock the Tilda is sitting in and used Cameo Corral and Regal Rose direct to paper to color the distressed edge. I also added ink to the edges of the designer papers to add some dimension.

These are the colors I used to color Tilda. You may notice that I used C1. I actually used it quite a bit to dull down the really bright pinks and greens. I works really nice to blend the colors and tone them down.
See you Friday for the Blogger's Challenge.

Great idea about using the C1 to tone things down. Hadn't thought about that before. She's just so sweet and the papers are perfect for her. Beautiful job!

Hi Julie I have to say that I love this card Tilda looks great and your colours are just fabby. Sometimes I get a mental block when I see these sort of sketches I think its lack of confidence then I see a creation like this and it all seems to come together perfectly.
