Love at Totally Gorjuss

~sniff sniff~ Anyone want a cold? Please??? The OM had a cold, now he doesn't and I do! How kind of him to pass it on.... I don't think! The other amazing thing was I felt OK then sneezed solidly for about 10 minutes blew my nose a thousand times and that was it I had cold. Just like that. Up to the sneezing starting I'd felt absolutely fine....Bizarre huh? I can't ever remember having and 'instant cold' before. Shame they don't ever go as quickly isn't it? I'm hoping it doesn't go the way of my last cold so I'm trying to behave myself a bit more this time.

So (me late again) another challenge over at Totally Gorjuss, this time its LOVE, well it is that time of year again. This week we're sponsored by Crafter Companion (they've new stamps in!) Stampotique also have love as their theme too - I wonder if its a special time of year? ;)) So I've entered this over there too.

Anyway I used my fave new Tilda again. I decided to colour her in grey and add a little pink to the hearts.... then pink kind of took over.... But I like pink and grey! The background paper is a Magnolia one, now because its cut from a brand new sheet ~gasps~ there was a white border on two sides... now I could have cut it off but then I wouldn't get 4 pieces out of it... so out came the Distress Crackle paint! A quick swipe round with that and the sides are nicely evened out. Some more of that fabby Handy Hippo card (check out the colours! They're lush) for matting and borders, a squirt of glimmer mist to the flowers.....

Et VoilĂ !

Now if you look closely and screw your eyes up and get your nose about an inch from the screen you make out the glimmer on the flowers and butterfly.... oh hang on that's just me without my glasses on!

And here's little Tilda - I'm kind of pleased with the colours here.
And I've remembered them too!

Hair - E 50 E51 E53 E55
Skin - E0000 E000 E00 E21 R20
dress and boots - C00 C0 C1 C2 C3 C5
Hearts and hem of dress - RV00 R81 R83

Oh a touch of black prisma pencil on her dress too.

Now as some of harry's fans know she's been a poorly chickie on and off for quite a while. Now ~touches wood~ she's been much better lately. So a little clip of her having her tummy tickled while playing with the camera strap! Notice how it goes from beak to foot/hand!

Fabby eh?
