Friday Sketcher Challenge - Tilda's Yellow Rain Boots

I had colored most of this Spring Rain Tilda last night, waiting to see what the Friday Sketcher Challenge for the week would be. I had so much fun doing this card using my sewing machine again, using some new Tulle I bought and a new charm. This Tilda is so fun for me to color, I love all the stripes. Here, have a look:



After I finished coloring her, I added Crystal Effects to her boots to make them like real rubber boots. Here is a close up of them:




The little charm says "Made With Love" on both sides, but you can barely see it beneath the Tulle bow. I found a bead shop that sold tons of these little charms and hundreds of others. Needless to say I bought quite a few for my cards and they were only $1 for 10 charms! Now that's a deal!!

My paper is Whisper White, Groovy Guava (love it) and Taken With Teal. The dsp is just some I had in my stash from somewhere.

Thanks for stopping for a visit. Tilda in the Rain enjoyed it too!
