Tilda in red

Hello lovely people,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I certainly did although it involved more drinking and dancing with friends than crafting!

I said I had lots of cards to share with you and it will be no surprise that a lot of them are Christmas cards!
This one is using the absolutely stunning new DP collction from Maja Design; I think the red/grey/white colour scheme is so elegant; I have used mainly the white and pale grey papers here.

Yes, that is a new Tilda!  I managed to keep to my resolution of just buying one stamp from the latest collection and this was a stand out favourite for me.

I opted for something a little different to my usual 3D paper flowers to embellish and cut these poinsettias with my Cricut from the lovely red DP.

Card recipe;
Image: Christmas Candle Tilda, from Waiting for Christmas collection
DP: A gift for you - Maja Design (available from Live and Love Crafts)
Dies: Anja's vintage swirls - Marianne Design
Sentiment: cut from DP, plus free alphabet stamps for names

Copic colours;
Skin: E000/00/21/11/04 & R20
Hair: E50/43/44
Coat - hat: R27/46/39/89
Fur on hat: W00/0/1/2
Glove / boots: W3/4/5/6
Candle: YR30/31 & Y21/23/38
Foliage: YG93/95/97 & R46/39
Ground: W00/0/1/2/3/4

I hope you are all starting to feel festive - has anyone got their tree up yet?!

Challenges I am playing along with;
1. Marvellous Magnolia (anything goes Christmas)
2.  Sweet Magnolia (use a die cut)
3.  Tilda's Town (it's winter)
4.   The Ribbon Girl (Magnolia only - Christmas)
5.  As You Like It (fave Christmas style - I tend to go for a traditional feel as it suits the images I like to use but do enjoy using non-traditional colours to give it my own twist)
6.  Simon Says Stamp (anything goes)

Absolutely beautiful Kat! Fabulous red colouring which is always so difficult! Loving those new papers, which I hadn't seen yet (will have to rectify that!).. and your layout and design - gorgeous as always!

Glad you had a good weekend... And no, my tree isn't up yet!! Maybe in a week or so? LOL! I have so many decorations... we end up having to get about 7 boxes from the loft.. it's almost like moving house!

Big Hugs
