Tilda in teal

Good morning!  Thank goodness it's Wednesday, half way to the weekend!

Normally in our family, that wouldn't matter much in the summer, but this summer our son is taking a couple summer classes to free up some room in his heavy course load, and since they squish everything into two weeks, he's been doing about 6 hours of homework a day.  The first of his two courses ends on Friday, and I can't wait!

As soon as I saw the challenge at Make It Colourful, I knew I just had to create a card for it.  It was pure coincidence that I used the same Tilda and colours as Zoe did in her video, but the folds in her dress are definitely not coincidental :)  This poor Watercan Tilda has been waiting months for me to find time to play with her, and I had her all stamped out and waiting for me last week so it seemed like fate :)

I've actually changed up the direction of a few of the pleats, but other than that, it's pretty similar :)  I had picked up this beautiful 'Crate Paper' paper last month, and it just screamed at me to use my favourite colour set BG11, 13, 15 with it.  The flowers are cut with my favourite Magnolia Doohickey.

Copic Colours:
skin- E000, 00, 21, 11, 93
hair & shoes - E30, 31, 33, 34, 35, 37
dress & socks - BG11, 13, 15, 49
watering can & trowel - T0, 1, 3, 5, 7
flowers - R24, 27
grass - YG91, 93
