Tilda Birthday Wishes

Hello again!  I hope that you are having a good week so far?!? The weather here is pretty weird, from down right bone chilling cold, then up to 9 degrees (celsius) then back down and flurries.  My body is sooooo not enjoying this up and down temperatures.  Thank goodness Friday is getting closer so that I can be at home and play in my pink palace this weekend wearing my pink snuggie!! LOL

This week another girl at my work, Devi,  is celebrating her birthday.  I made this cute "Tilda with Daffodil" image for her and even tried a new technique! I was so proud of myself as I usually just stick to what I know and afraid to try somehting new incase it turns out poopie, lol. 

Here is a picture of the card....
* White A2 card & envelope
* Magnollia Stamp "Tilda with Daffodil"
* Michaels $1.50 bin Birthday Sentiment
* Stampin' Up Melon Mombo Embossing Powder
* Versa Mark Ink
* Heating tool
* Michaels $1.50 bin Yellow pigment Ink (for boarder of sentiment)
* Copic X-Press paper
* Coipic Markers (colours listed below if interested)
* Smooch Spritz - Pink Sprinkles
* SmoochSpritz - Vanilla Shimmer
* Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8 to make the shape of the card
* Yellow Peeko Ribbon (from my stash-sooo old)
* Pink Ribbon (from my stash)
* Creative Memories Delightful White/Yellow Paper Flower
* The Twinery Yellow/White Twine
* Pink Button (from my stash)
* 3D pop dots

The new technique is that I used Smooch Spitz to create my background for this card instead of using a patterned paper  or cardstock (which is not rocket science by any means at all, I was just too afraid to spray this stuff in my pink palace in case I got it everywhere, especially on my image!).  I took out the Spellbinder Nestability that I cut the shape of the card from and layed it on the card, then I taped it down on the outside edges so that it would not move (but it did a bit of course-Murphy's Law right-we are best buds sometimes), then I used one Smooch Spritz then the other Smooch Spritz till I got the effect I was looking for.  I had a few drops that came out instead of a nice fine mist and some ran down in the white area I wanted to keep white (grrr) so then I just grabbed my white gel pen and went over the spots after they were dry and then they were gone (mostly).

Next time I try this again I will use my repositional tape around the whole Spellbinder instead of here and there, as when the paper got damp it started to curl and that is what caused my little drops to run.  I do think that I will definaltely try this again as the glimmer effect that I got was pretty cool =)  Could even spray on patterned paper or cardstock just to add a little bit of pizzaz!

Here is a close up of Tilda and the Copic colours I used.....
* Skin:  E13,E11,E00 (needed to go for a "brown" skin tone on this card)
* Hair:  W9,W7,W5,E749,
* Shirt:  RV10,RV00,RV000
* Jeans:  B99,B97,B95
* Shoes:  W7,W5,W3,W1,W00
* Daffodil:  YG67,YG63,YG61,Y18,Y15,Y13,Y11

Please let me know if you know of a better way to use the Smooch Sprtiz other than the way I mentioned above, I know there has got to be an easier way to do it with out dripping into the areas you want to keep "clean", right??

Till next time, keep crafting!
