Happy Birthday Tilda

The card I'm gonna share with you today has most of my favorite colors. It took me a while to color Tilda because I was wondering what to do with her hair. Coloring curly hair is one of my problem areas. I have to decide where the dark and light areas should be.  But practicing REALLY  helps.

I watched/read alot of tutorials about shading around the image and that "line" on Tilda's face. It does give her some sort of facial features to add to her facial expression since she does not have a mouth. The tutorial I read were using Copic markers but I tried to use Distress Inks and it seemed to work for me. I stitched the edges using my sewing machine except for one piece that I just distressed and stained.

I'm entering this card here:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes 
Simply Magnolia: Bling and Bows

I used the following for this card:
Magnolia Stamp: Tilda Sending Love
Sentiment: LOTV Circular/Postal Sentiments
Distress Ink Reinkers
MME 6x6 Paper pad Happy go Lucky
Dies: Spellbinders (oval & Circle), Whimsy Flourish Die
Flowers: WOC
Large wild Rose and the aster daisies: I color sprayed with Worn Lipstick + water
Ribbons, charms and bling from my stash

Have a nice day!
