Tilda at the Carnival!!

Hello everyone! I have some awesome news! Zoe has asked me to be Guest Designer for the month of April over at Make it Crafty! How awesome is that!?!? I just love this Candy Cart Digi, soon as I saw it I wanted it for this particular Tilda. Doesn't it go perfectly together. The theme over at Make it Crafty this week is to use Bright Colors. I will be honest this is not a strong point for me, but I've been wanting to color brighter. When I first started coloring these images I was not feeling it. ONLY because I was using so many different colors. It wasn't going together. Once I started putting the card together I started liking it. I still think my coloring is off. I need to clean a few of my Copic nibs I feel like it looks a little chunked on her skin. So my tip of the day is.. FINISH YOUR CARDS! Even if you are not "feeling it" Once it's all put together it may come out better than you planned! :)

I want to thank Zoe and her extremely talented design team for having me aboard this month! It's going to be a fun one!!!

I am in utter awe - we seem to be using the same colours (mostly) for the skin, yet yours has this cool warm glow with a pinkish tinge and mine doesn't.
Off to sulk now... lol
