Tilda Goes Gothic

Hello,

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!

What a fantastic job you've done Hels - maybe they will bring out a special Goth Tilda, just for you ... but then again after seeing what you've done, you don't need a specail stamp (oh I wish I would shut up waffling)

Hee hee, I like this better than the average Tilda! You're right - goth with no lippy just wouldn't seem right, good decision!

Totally fab, hip, and it deserves a special quote...From the infamous Paris, "That's HOT"!!!! Great job! I'm still laughing because this is just amazing how you transformed her and how it just WORKS!!!!!!!!!!! Love it!!!! Mahalo as always, Jenn
