I finally made one....

... an easel card, that is and I can't believe that it's taken me so long to get around to trying out this design because it's so easy and effective.

So, here she is - Tilda with Tulips perched on the Watercan (sorry for the rather dark photograph). The sentiment is hand printed on the Lace Banner. The pearls are from The Hobby House. The diamante (on the butterfly's wings) are from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Works. I punched the leaves with my McGill Pine Branch punch and used Pumice Stone Distress Ink for the distressing. The lovely papers are from the Papermania Rose Garden collection, which is one of my favourites at the moment.

Now, wonder of wonders, I remembered to note down the Copics I used for the colouring - it's rather a long list:

Tilda's shirt, socks and bow: BG000,00,01 & 05
Tilda's dress, the pink flowers and the butterfly: RV000,10,21,34,95. R20,83,85
Tilda's skin and hair: E50,00,21,11,13,31,25,29
Tulips: Y17 & 21
The grass and leaves: G20,21,24,82 & 85
Watercan: C1,3,5,7 & 9

I hope you like it - I had great fun making it and I definitely won't be so slow to make another easel card!

Thanks for taking the time to look and please leave me a comment so that I know you've called in and I can visit you!
