Lilac & Pinks - Tilda Challenge 38 - Sketch

Oh look - its not festive! I really enjoyed making this card and once again delved into the Dovecraft 6x6 Amethyst papers for colour inspiration.

The Tilda challenge this week is the sketch below, which I rotated to incorporate all of the Tilda image

The lilac background is paper which has been inked in pink with a silver gel pen faux running stitch around the edge (and yes it is a bit wobbly in places as Jacob was trying to get on my knee to see what I was doing!) The image has been coloured with watercolour pencils and her wings have been lightly glittered.

I twisted the raffia ribbon so that both colours would show as it looked a bit flat with only the pink or lilac and I wanted some texture too. A fairly quick and simple card to make - just the colouring took a while!

  • Backing papers: Dovecraft 6x6 Amethyst papers and plain lilac paper
  • Image: Tilda coloured with watercolour pencils
  • Raffia: From my stash
