Tilda with Daisies and Mushrooms


Hello, Friends! I know it seems a bit early but I had to start digging out my autumn stamps because our mornings are getting brisk here in Colorado. Autumn is very close upon us so I felt an urge to make a fall themed card.


I decided to color Tilda with Daisies and Mushrooms from the Turning Leaves collection. I used some pretty Maja Design papers that I have in my hoard stash. These are from the Walking in the Forest collection. I still have several sheets left to use for some scrapbook pages and cards. I also used Bazzill cardstock, my favorite, for the card base and some of the die cuts.


I’ve been coloring with Distress Inks more as well because it’s very relaxing. I need to work on my backgrounds a bit to get them smoother and I like to use darker shadows to really make the image pop. You are sure to see more DI coloring from me.

I still love my Copics but I can color an image in half an hour so it is not as relaxing. DIs take me a bit longer and it helps to reduce stress.


Here’s a close up of Tilda.
