Tulip Tilda

Tulip Tilda is just another fun little gal to color with distress inks!  Used some left over paper from another card.  Hard to see, but used Crystal Lacquer on the Tulip and also the butterfly.

Supplies used distress inks, Graphics 45 paper, Northwoods butterfly stamp, pearl dots, white glaze pen for accenting and ribbon and lace.

Distress Ink colors are Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade,  Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Tattered Rose and Frayed Burlap.

Noticed some people trim Tilda with just a little white edge, so tried that this time.  Actually thought it was a little easier to cut out then right next to the line!  What do you do?

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Patti Jo! I love this Tilda with her tulip and the way you colored her with distress inks and added those white gel dots. I need to practice coloring with distress inks and thank you for posting the colors you used. I like that she remains the focal point, and your DP is beautiful for this card. Hugs, Cami

Awesome Patti Jo. Your distress inking is getting better and better.
what a cute Tilda. This must be one your new ones. I love how you did her hair and her dress is perfect. Also love how you put that lovely deeper orange on the flower. I like that you cut her out differently this time leaving the thin white. super DP.
Hugs Marion

Beautiful Patti Jo! I love the white dots; I so need a white pen to do this too!

I cut along the line and then run my Copic Multiliner Brush along the edge to make it black. But boy, some of those cuts are hard to make, especially around pigtails!

I love your card!

Ellen said...

What a beautiful card, i love the colors you used. I also trim the stamps with a little white edge and it's easier too but I think she looks nicer on the card with some white arround her.
Hugs, Ellen

I usually trim right on the line, too, and it's often hard to get those little nooks and crannies (even with good, sharp, pointy scissors!). I love how she looks with her white outline. What an elegant card! Gina L

Oh I really liked this yellow card. Did you use the white pen to make the dots on her dress? I hope I get this good!
Love her,

She looks so cool on yellow and I love the coloring and the gorgeous DP. Everything goes so well together!

Candy said...

Love your card! The DP is lovely with Tilda and the butterfly a splash of colour.
I have seen images cut both ways and they are both great depending on the look you want on your card. I seem to always cut her out completely!
Hugs, Candy

Hi Patti Jo! lovely, lovely card! love the black paper with her...or is it dark, dark chocolate, oh I mean brown! lol Love how you've colored her and kept her the focal point.
I cut with the EK Success Cutter BEE scissors with the titanium blades...they are the sharpest and I LOVE them! They are kinda hard to find though. I try to keep a new one on hand and the last place I found them was Hobby Lobby. I also cut out my images before I color! I know, backwards to most. But that way the edges get colored at the same time as I'm coloring the image...really finishes it off nice IMO.

Hello Patti Jo, beautiful card, love the pretty colors! I usually trim mi images right at the black outline and then I go over with a black pen to outline it, but this looks wonderful!!

Patti Jo you did a beautiful job. I love the black and yellow. I too am trying the distress inks. Aren't they fun to use? I just can't decide on one medium.
Your cards are beautiful.
