Cupcake Tilda

Over on Docrafts some of us do a 'Card-Kit-Swap', we make a card & seal it, put a kit together of all pieces used and send card & kit to a partner. This is the card I made with the kit sent to me by my partner, Tanya.
It's great to see what different people do with the same stash! I was very good by sticking to the rules and not opening Tanya's card till AFTER I'd finished mine :)

I've not seen this Tilda before but as soon as I did I knew I wanted to make a cup-cake themed card!
I went on a mission to find a template and found a fab one here.

Tanya's kit included 3 different papers so that worked out really well. I backed each piece with card to give it a bit of stability, I inked the edges of each piece and added some highlights with a white gel pen.

I coloured Tilda with my trusted Water Colour pencils and 3d glossed her fully. Finally I added the flowers and leaves that were in Tanya's kit.

Tanya's card is a very classic & clean layout - and the colouring of Tilda is fab.
Mine is more of a 'Huge cake - bung it all on' approach!

I was so pleased with this card I didn't want to give it away - so I added my daughter's name and '21' and her brother and sister gave it to her for her birthday on Monday! As soon as she opened it I told her that after her birthday I'd keep it safe for her!!!
