Mother's Day Pocket Card with Tilda

I was really excited about Mother's Day and was really looking forward to making cards for the occasion; especially since I had been able to lay my hands on two of the Magnolia Stamps on the Lulupu Store. It was almost as if I was looking for an opportunity to use them; itching to use them, actually. So when my friend Kamya said that she wanted me to make a card for her mother, I immediately stamped Tilda Loves Flowers & Tilda with Daisy on paper and showed them both to her while we were chatting on Skype.

She loved them both, but she liked Tilda Loves Flowers more. So I decided to go with that. Excited that I was, I started to colour her up immediately, just to get an idea of what the final coloured image would look like. Here are the two options I tried. But ultimately, I picked some colours from the first combination and some, from the second. And it turned out to be beautiful.

Excuse the hazy pink shade on her right hand. I used the other side of this page as a base for distressing and then clicked this picture. :)

I also tried coloring Tilda with Daisy, just because I was having so much fun!! :P
When I asked Kamya what else she wanted on the card, she told me that she liked the Pocket Cards I had made and she was in love with the Quilled Gift Boxed I had made on this card here.. 

This is a very old card. I made this in August 2011 for my Uncles' Birthdays. Yes, I have two Uncles with birthdays barely two weeks apart. So I made identical cards for both of them. I am hoping to write a detailed blog about this card soon. There are a lot of old cards to be covered on this blog. :)
So I kind of knew what I was going to make and this is what I made... :)

A closer look at the Trinket, Twine, Chipboard Sticker, Alphabet Stickers and Pearls.

Tilda - All dolled up and coloured. I added stickles glitter to the flowers and loved the sparkly look. :)

Tilda looked weird stamped on plain paper. So I drew some grass on regular paper and cut it out with scissors.  I then distressed it with Crushed Olive & Peeled Paint. 

I used the alphabet stickers from Echo Park's  Happy Day 12x12 Collection Kit. And of course, grammar  freak that I am, I added the apostrophe by hand. :P

The trinket is from Maya Road and the Twine is from My Mind's Eye Follow your Heart Collection.
