I have just bought my very first Tilda stamps :O)) I have been looking at all the lovely cards that many of you have made and decided to have a go for myself. I know I said I wouldn't get any but I am a little bit bored with using the same old techniques and fancied a little bit of a change!
For this card, I decided to make Tilda a little bit different from usual. I hit upon the idea of making her a little bit of a Goth and this was the perfect excuse to use my most favest images of skulls...I cannot seem to stop using the skulls you know!
I stamped her in black StaZon and then stamped her cat next to her. I then used a waterbrush with Adirondack pads in Black and Wild Plum to colour both of the images in. I did get a little bit carried away with her blusher and eyeshadow and I know she hasn't normally got a mouth, but she would have looked daft without a bit of lippy, so I made a tiny triangle of Wild Plum for her lips.
I matted her onto some black card and then silver satin card, then I made some paper pieces to go underneath this - using gorgeous papers from Rusty Pickle ( again, I think these are RP papers, only I had chopped off the label strip at the bottom the last time I used them!)
I made a little black mat to add some ribbon and a buckle to and also added some brand new chipboard I also just got, called Riff Raff. I added some gems for the skulls eyes and then added a little silver skull charm to the image mat. The chipboard was painted with Raspberry Dabber and the ickle hearts from the eyes are just coloured with black felt tip pen.
I know it won't be to everyones taste but it is just something a little different :O)) I also just want to add that my inspiration for her hair is from my pal Nicky the Minx, who has the most gorgeous pink and black hair!! :O))
Thanks for looking and I would love to hear what you all think!
