I've been playing with my watercolouring lately - getting more familiar with my distress inks as it's been a while and I'm teaching a class next month. I also had picked up the Tim Holtz 8x8 collage paper pad, so this is what came together! I always feel like darkening my distress inking. I like to add lots of grey and black around the edges. So the Tim Holtz grungy look came to mind.
I am loving the fact that Spring is in the air. My daffodils are out - I just LOVE seeing my Spring bulbs bloom! So I was inspired to colour this little summertime Tilda.
A fairly simple card. I didn't feel like a lot of embellishments as I used a very intricate die (which I LOVE by the way!). So Tilda stands alone here.
