Spellcaster Tilda


Today I took a short break from drawning images for my other site, DigiDrawn and got back to creating another Tilda card! This Spellcaster Tilda was purchased months ago, but I had yet to ink her up!

This card was kind of an experiment. I really didn't know what colours to use... so I DIDN'T! I decided on simply Copics C0 to C6. The only colours this card has is the reflective rainbows the beautiful prism paper gives off. I thought this paper, which was a gift from a new friend, would give the card it's magic; it changes depending upon how you hold it!


This stamp is too cute -- I love her sheer apron; so I used a Copic Clear Spica pen on it, her wings, the star and the sparkles around her wand to give them a bit of bling. It's hard to see on camera; you  may be able to see this effect better here (especially if you click on it to zoom in):



The prism paper was used as the mat under the TPC Studio Class Act Dots patterned paper. I punched out 16 Martha Stewart's Deco Fan corners and taped them individually around the Spellbinders die-cut Tilda image. I inked the edge with Color Box silver ink and popped it up on foam dimensionals. The ribbon is from the Dollar Store.

Inside the card it says "a very magical birthday!"

Now that was a fun break!
