An Old Friend

An Old Friend

Hi everyone, well it's almost 3am and here I am updating my blog, 
my low mood was starting to lift and I was beginning to feel a 
little better and then wallop I only end up with the FLU :(  It 
started yesterday afternoon with a headache that I just couldn't shift 
but just as I was about to settle down to watch "Cilla" I was violently 
sick and had to go to bed, I woke up 2 hours later feeling like I had the 
hangover from hell and just couldn't get back to sleep, so here I am 
blogging lol.
Anyway that's enough of my whining lol. 
Yesterday I coloured up one of my Tilda Magnolia images, It's been such a 
long time since the last time I coloured one of them and It's almost like 
colouring an old friend because like many of you Tilda Magnolia is where my 
my colouring obsession started lol

To make this card I've used the following
Aqua Card, Eau De Nil Design Papers, Wild Rose Design Papers, Silver Mirri,
Aqua 25mm Berisfords Satin Ribbon, Silver Chain, Silver 5mm Jump Rings, Silver 
Cosmetics Case and Made With Love Charms & Martha Stewart Doily 
Border Punch

I Coloured Tilda In Bath Cap using Pro/Flexmarkers in the following colours 
Skin~ Coral, Dusky Pink, Blush, Almond and Tea Rose
Hair~ Satin, Tawny Owl & Shale
Clothes~ Sand Dune, Tea Rose & Antique Pink 
Bathtub~Ice Grey 1,2 & 3
Bubbles~ Cool Aqua, Oasis & Island Lagoon

When I'd finished colouring Tilda I then fussy cut her.
Next I used Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink as a background.
I then added Stardust Stickles to the bubbles, but I still wasn't happy with the way they 
looked so when they were dry I covered them in a thick layer of Glossy Accents. 

This is a close up of the bubbles, The camera doesn't really capture the depth 
very well but if you look to the right side of Tilda's head you can just about 
see how 3d they look.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges 


  1. Gorgeous card Lorraine love the image and your colouring. The backing paper is great love the embelishments and how you have done the bubbles xx

  2. So beautiful! Love Tilda but I've not coloured her for years either. That's going to be changing very soon! Such fabulous colour choices here...just perfect.

    So sorry you're poorly. I've have flu twice and both times it's hit me in the evening without any warning at all. First time was when I was a kid and my mam sent me around the chippy. Got there, was in the queue and just fainted. Never ever want flu again. You just take care of yourself and make sure you get plenty of rest. That pink stuff (Pepto Bismol) and Dioralyte really helped me out with the first few days. Hope you're being well looked after.

  3. Hi Lorraine, so sorry to hear you are poorly, the flu is not nice and take care hun.

    Your card as always is gorgeous and loving the little cutie and the card layout and embellishments are fabulous.

    Gentle crafty hugs
