Rain Rain go away...




This gorgeous Tilda is so typical of rainy/windy day where your umbrella folds backwards. I'm sure it's happened to everyone. Although her shoes are a little posh for a walk in the rain she is adorable! I wanted to colour her really vibrant and I love these My Minds Eye papers, they're so sparkly. The challenge over at Just Magnolia is Going Dotty. I paired the dotty papers with a stripey ribbon and button from Grandma's stash. Tilda is coloured with prismacolour pencils and baby oil. Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, pins I made from stash beads, lace from the local fabric store and gems from the Dollar store. Thanks for stopping by I am also entering my card at...Corrosive Challenges - Button it up, Let's Ink It Up - NO DIGI and Anything Goes, Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Magnolia stamp and Glitter, Crafty Emma - Bold & Bright, Gem Of A Challenge -Ribbon and Lace , Delicious Doodles - spots or stripes, Moving Along With The Times – Spring, Rubber Cafe - - sparkle & glitter.
