Noble Tilda Valentine

Happy Aloha Friday Everyone!  I don't know where Thursday went.  I'm sorry if I'm boring you with all these heart fold cards but I had so many ideas in mind and need to get them out!  I'll be quick today.  Here's "Noble Tilda" from the new Raising the Ceiling Collection that is on pre-order from Magnolia-licious.  But, to be honest (shhhhh!) I still have a hard time doing Tildas with heels or pumps on.  She looks cuter with her boots or Mary Janes LOL!  My personal opinion so don't hit me LOL!  Okay, here's my card:

I am trying to get better at coloring with black, or the darkest gray shade I have.  That's why I went with this red/black/white theme.  Unfortunately, my coloring skills aren't getting any better.  OMG I colored her hair black originally and it was a total DISASTER!  I tell you, she looked older than her age by 100 years!  I had to recolor her head and I cut it out and adhered it over the booboo head!

I added crystal lacquer to the tiny rose on her dress and on her shoes also.  The rest is self explanatory so I won't go into details here.
Have a wonderful weekend to all of you, and thank you for stopping by.

Cami, This red, white and black heart card is so cute. I'm with you...I'm not use to seeing Tilda in heels either. I have to tell you...I don't know how many times I had to cut apart the Tildas that I'm working on because I made a coloring mistake too.
Hugs,
Suzan

Oh gosh, Cami!! Your card is gorgeous!! I agree with you about Tilda and her "adult" shoes. I like her much better in her boots and MJ's!! Your black, white, and red color combo is delicious!!! And that lace is so beautiful!!! Gorgeous coloring too!! I love it! hugs!

Ila said...

Another totally Gorgeous card Cami!! I love the colors you've used here..your coloring is Wonderful!!. Tilda's dress is perfect and I love the pretty lace she sits on. What a great tip too on fixing a bad hair day!!..I too am not a real fan of high heeled Tildas...but if she was playing dress up..that would be another matter...lol...(in clothes and heels too big)..Have a Lovely Weekend!!...Hugs, Ila

Eulanda said...

Mistakes are usually opportunities for embellishments Cami. LOL! The card turned out very nicely and I'm with you on your opinion about Tilda and the high heel shoes. It's just....somehow not right. And as you said, just my personal opinion.

Risa said...

Hi Cami,
Your card turned out beautifully! We all make "boo-boos" and you recovered from your beautifully! As always, your detailing is fabulous and that touch of lace is special, I love it!

Love your red, white and black combo, Cami. I too prefer Tilda as a little girl but she sure looks elegant in her little gray dress. Very pretty card, Cami.

Hi Cami,

Wonderful card. I love the color combination and design. I agree with you. Noble Tilda was not quite as fun to color as the others. I had to chuckle that you had to replace her head. I did the same thing last night on a different stamp. I ruined the hair. It looked like mud. I'm new at this, so I will have to practice, practice, practice.
