An Oldie But Goodie - Sitting Summer Tilda

Hope your weekend is getting off to a good start and the weather is being nice to all of you!  I had a chance to work on a card and thought I'd do one for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge.  The theme is Black + White + Pop (one other color).  I thought it would be fun to play along but oh does my coloring "black" hair suck!  I know I need to keep practicing and that I will do, but at this point, I gave up for now so what you see is what you get for now LOL!  I chose to use red as my Pop color and I know for sure I'll be challenging myself to use other colors, too!  So, here is my failed "black haired" Tilda:
I don't have much to say about this card as the DPs and flowers are from my "supply box" and it's filled with odds and ends from previous projects.  The heart die is from Nellie Snellen  (MFD 022 Heart) and the flourish is from Marianne Design Creatables (LR0116).  I decorated the inside also but kept it very flat while trying to maintain the same theme:
My card looks bare like something is missing but I decided to stop here so Tilda doesn't get "lost" among all the dots LOL!  Kinda plain and simple but I know I'll just mess it up if I add something I'm not sure of at this point.  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.  I truly appreciate your critique so I can consider it in my furture cards.
Have a wonderful, fun-filled weekend, stay safe, and happy crafting.

Cami she is just adorable! I think you did an amazing job on this card I love everything about her.

Hey Cami!! I think it's great that you took a shot at the black hair. I find the easiest thing for me is to actually use 100 for my darkest part and blend using W9 or C9 and then up to the lighter colors. The colors are so close that they blend easy. But I think you did a great job! You said that the inside of your card looks blah but I think once you write something in the heart it will change that look for you. I absolutely adore that heart die. It's gorgeous! I also just love the black, red & white but more white. That is SHARP!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Hugs!

Cheryl said...

Very pretty card!!! I love the black and white with the pop of red color. I haven't tried coloring black hair yet. Cute heart die too!

Cami,
What a beautiful card. Red and black is one of my favorite combos. It's very "eye-catching."

Elise said...

Cami you crack me up! "So Tilda doesn't get lost among all the dots." LOL!!! She would never get lost on your card .. because she is absolutely GORGEOUS!! :) Yes, Red is be the PERFECT color to add to black and white to make things POP, and this surely does! I love it!!!

ps.. your black hair colouring is AWESOME! :)

Hugs,
Elise

What are you talking about Cami? You did an absolute wonderful job on the black hair! To me, black hair is the one of the hardest to do . . . I still need much practice.
I just adore your B&W with a splash of red! :) Luv it with all your details. Hope your weekend is treating you well!

Hi Cami, I love the the black and white with the red accent color!! Tilda looks summery in her white outfit!! And, I know what you mean about coloring black hair. It's hard to color on paper and on my head!! LOL!! You did a wonderful job!!
Hugs,
Suzan
