An Easter Tilda in Teal and Brown

A few weeks back I coloured up this Tilda with Eggs in her Apron with my favourite copic colour, anything BG.  It turned out a bit darker than I wanted, but then I found these older October Afternoon 'County Fair' papers and thought they were a perfect match.  I know it's not a typical colour combo for Easter or spring, but hopefully it doesn't seem too strange!  lol


I've used my copic markers to colour my flowers to match.  The white cherry blossom is from Wild Orchid, and I've used my Copic BG10 to edge it.  The smaller flat flowers were both white Prima's.

I thought that the sketch at Simon Says Stamp was perfect for these papers!

Now I hate to admit how old I am, but I have a big birthday coming up, so keep an eye out here for a blog candy, starting in about a week!  There's no use trying to hide from birthdays, right?  There's no other good option but to keep on having them!  LOL
