A New Pal



I knew when I purchased this Tilda holding Hatched Chick that I could put nearly anything in her hands... as long as it covered the original image. So I drew a little kitten for sweet Tilda to have and hold.

Here's the original Easter-themed stamp I coloured previously if you're unfamiliar with it:


I used two sheets of matching paper from The Glitter Stack by DCWV, matted with two sheets of purple and yellow Bazzil cardstock. All papers were edged with my Copic V09 marker.

I used simple flower brads and ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is hand-written on a Cuttlebug punched tag, nested onto cardstock that was punched using my Martha Stewart lace edge punch. My Cuttlebug was also used to punch out the Spellbinder's oval mat as well.

Both the oval mat and Tilda are raised on foam dimensionals too.

Here are the Copics used on my card:

Kitty: C0, C2, C3
Kitty's Bow: R01, C2
Dress and shoes: B000, B00, R00, R01, C0, C2
Skin: E000, E00
Hair: Y32, E97, E99

I hope you likey!
