Tilda of Sweden


Good morning one and all! Today, I would like to show you the lovely Tilda of Sweden from the Summer Memories 2012 Collection. I am not at all happy with my coloring, but, living in rural Wisconsin, I just don't have the opportunity to take a Copic Certification class! I so admire all the talent out there and I wish I just had l/10th of it!!!! As many of you know, I take care of my 93 year old mother who is getting very frail and cannot be alone. We also had company from Germany.....it was a fun time for all.

I thought the windmill would make a nice background for this lovely Tilda. She is colored with copics and showcased on papers from Webster's pages. The fence, of course, is also a Magnolia die.

Thank you for visiting my humble blog. I appreciate your support. Wishing you all a fabulous weekend. Hugs, Christina

  3. Good Fathers Christina! Your coloring is wonderful. You are just a little tired and being too critical of yourself. I love the design work of this beauty. The left hand corner has a real folk art feel and I love that windmill. I think your card is lovely and I have always loved the way you use dark colors and light colors together. I took my 87 year old mother out to lunch the other day - she lives with my sister who is not married and has no children. My best to your family!

  6. Your card is darling, Christina. Tilda looks like she's waiting to travel on one of those hot air balloons. Too cute! And I think you did a great job on your coloring.

    You know you can take on line classes with Suzanne Dean (videos) at Color Me Creative Classroom.

  12. I think your coloring is FAB on this cutie pie Christina! I too would love to take some Copic classes.... I need to be in person and not on the computer watching someone else tell me how to do the coloring. Maybe one day Suzanne, Angie,etc. will come to my neck of the woods.
    Hugs....Pam:)

  31. Hey Christina, there's absolutely nothing bad abt your coloring. A true artist jus have their own unique way! There's no need to go for classes:) cos you jus learn someone's style that's all. There's no right or wrong, this or that. Jus be yourself. Hahaha, make sense?

  33. What an adorable card, the wind mill adds the perfect touch!! Your coloring is fab, I don't think you need copic certification. I got certified and I still color the same, I had the chance to take a second advanced class and I said No way, remember practice makes perfect!! Take care and BIG HUGS!!
