A little bit of ROMANCE.....

Hi Ladies

The calendar has whizzed around again and it's time for another challenge at In The Pink...  my home away from home!!  

Funnily enough, Tilda has been a popular choice at The Pink Palace this time...  with the majority of us choosing to use her for our VALENTINES/LOVE THEME...

I chose to use Tilda Blowing Hearts - which was a gift I received from a lovely lady (thank you sweetie).. and although I did aim to use a very pale pink... I ended up using quite a vivid colour!  

Materials used:
Image - Tilda Blowing Hearts
Colouring: Copics - Pinks RV00, RV17, RV34, RV55
Dies: Li'l Inkers Rectangles, Memory Box Pecious Hearts
Paper: Bella Boulevard Love and Marriage
Satin ribbon bow, Tim Holtz DI glitter and gems from stash

I'd love you to pop over to In The Pink and join in our VALENTINES/LOVE challenge..  the more the merrier at The Pink Palace - we can have a party with Pink Champagne! 

Hope all is well in your part of the world...  and that you're not suffering from the floods in parts of the UK..  some people are having a really bad time.. I really do feel for them.

And lastly... I would just like to say hello to my new followers.... thank you for joining me in my little bit of cyberspace.

Big, Big Hugs

I do love this Tilda; such pretty long hair and so beautifully coloured - the pink looks the perfect shade to me! It matches the DP so well and I love the touch of brighter pink in the bow and heart details :-)
