Koala Tilda

Happy Saturday! It's already been a busy Saturday morning for me. I went to my local stamp store, Stamper's Ink, this morning to participate in their card tournament. Each month 12 individuals can come in and design a card for a monthly tournament. Tanya, the store owner, will then post them on Facebook and the store's blog for individuals to vote on the best card of the month. Then in December, the winner's will face off and make another card and that person will be the card tournament champion for 2012. So on Monday, I'll post a picture of my card here and beg, I mean ask, for your vote.

Then after making my card for the tournament I did the stamping that was necessary for the store's two make n' take cards today. I should have pictures of them later this week as I need to finish putting them together.

Now about today's card. I made it last night at a crop at Scrapbook Page. I love miss Tilda here holding a Koala bear. The stamp is called Koala Tilda and is from Magnolia stamps. I stamped her using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored most of the Tilda and the Koala with my Copics. See below for the list of Copics used. I paper pieced Tilda's and had and uniform with the same designer paper as I used on the card. The base card is 5 3/4 inches square and is a dark brown Bazzill paper. I tied some green twine into a bow on the card. The photo corners are from an embellishment pack I bought last night at the crop.

Tomorrow I'll share with you another Tilda card that I made last night and it is so cute, I can barely wait to share.

Until then, may you be blessed!

Copics used:

Skin, E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20

Shoes: T7, T5, T3
Koala: T9 (nose), W7, W5, W3, W1
