Tilda is back!

Hello lovely people,

As this posts today I am heading into 'work' to start observing ward rounds for my prescribing course; I have to do 90 hours of practice so I really need to make a start! 

While I am exercising the little grey cells it's time for a new challenge at As You Like It and our theme is...

...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is Stamp and Create with a $20 voucher

Occasionally I go for black and white but most of my cards are in colour...well, there are so many lovely colours to choose from!

Especially pink!

It has been ages since I coloured up a Tilda and this is one of the collection I have that have never seen ink.
I'm so glad I decided to play with her as I had such fun colouring her :-)

My original design for this card had a circular sentiment in the top right corner and there I was with the sentiment hovering over the card with the back taken off the sticky pads....and suddenly I wasn't sure I wanted I left it off!
What do you think; would it look better with a sentiment?!

Don't touch it, it's perfect as it is! :-)
I actually quite often stop short on adding a sentiment to a card. That way it can be used for so many occasions. either way, this card looks so lovely as is, I'd say go with your instinct and leave it off!

And it's colour for me too. As much as I love the black and white look, I really, really struggle to make them. x

Such a pretty card Kat with or without the sentiment!! xx

Jennifer Bradley said...

Hi Kat, I adore this card you have created. She is gorgeous and love the colours . The card design is fabulous and the colours are perfect and all topped off with those pretty flowers. A really pretty girly card. I prefer it without the sentiment. Hugs Jennifer xx

CornishKat said...

Gorgeous card Kat, I love the colours and the character is very cute. I think you made the right call on the sentiment - it looks perfect without it and has a great 'balance'. Good luck getting your brain in gear today :)

Carole said...

Oh isn't she adorable! fabulous colouring of her too Kat, love your colour choice. Sentiment? I always have the same problem so i think you have made the right choice.

Christine L said...

Nooooooooooo leave the sentiment off!!! Like you, I often struggle putting a sentiment on because I think it ruins or unbalances the layout.. and people can always write what they want inside!!!

Of course, she had to be PINK......... and she's utterly gorgeous! Fabulous colouring Kat..

Kat, this is a truly beautiful card. Your colouring is exquisite and your layout so gorgeous with the pretty flowers and die cuts. The papers are wonderful and I of course think your pink colour scheme is fab!
I rarely add a sentiment and I think your card is just perfect as it is...
Hope today went well.

Lorraine said...

She looks so pretty Kat. A gorgeous card with lots of pretty details and beautifully put together.

I struggle with sentiments and often either forget or don't have room for them. Like Christine I find they sometimes don't look right on the card but I am really trying to get better and sometimes tuck them under the image a bit. She's gorgeous as she is though. Don't touch her one bit. Love your colouring and papers. Beautiful card Kat.

Mary Mac said...

Just love your layout, colours AND colouring. I think sentiments can be a distraction from the main work on a card. It would be a shame IMO, to clutter your perfectly beautiful project with a message.

Chrissy said...

She looks so beautiful Kat...fabulous colouring and love the layers and stitching and the flowers..I would leave the sentiment off until the card is needed..really lovely.


Brenda said...

Amazing card, Kat! Love the imagej, the coloring and your wonderful design.

This is an adorable card, your stamped Tilda image is gorgeous and you have matched the colours with the papers beautifully. I'm so late in getting around to everyone and commenting - where does the time go?
