"Happy Tilda" was coloured using Copics and raised on foam dimensionals over "grass" made with Ultrafine Sage Flowersoft. One tradition on Canada Day is for kids to paint red Maple Leafs on their faces; so I gave Tilda one too. Her Canada Day shirt is decorated with a Maple Leaf sticker. She is holding a flag I removed from a little Canada Day doll we've had forever but never really displayed.
The background is a Government of Canada postcard I picked up at a Canada Day celebration a few years back. Yep, I raided my Canada Day decor stash for this card!
Over the background I wanted to portray fireworks.
But how to do that?
Well, I got out my vintage Spirograph!
What fun it was to use my Zig Millennium pens to create a few colourful bursts. (And yes, it DID take me a few tries to get the hang of it again; I haven't used it in a few years). The center burst is also popped up on foam dimensionals.
The fireworks trails are made with Westrim Crafts Rhinestone Accent Flourishes. The centers of the bursts were filled in with silver Stickles for more sparkle.
Inside the easel card I added a red rose from Dollarama Crafts, and two white roses from Modern Romance at Michael's, all three given a dose of sparkle with silver Stickles too.
Wild Orchid Crafts to arrive!)
The sparkly red paper is something my daughter picked up from Michael's years ago, so unfortunately the piece that was left didn't have the make on it.
A simple white satin ribbon from Offray finished it off.
