My Summery Tilda.............cool off a sea breeze

Good evening peeps I'm trying out different mediums at the moment, usually as you know I'm a big fan of Promarkers.....I still am..but I want to be able to use other mediums also so I dont have to rely on 1 if that makes any sense. I see different blogs all using dif technics etc & each & every 1 of them are fab, I especially love the look of distress ink & Prisma pencils on Magnolia's Tilda & Edwin........ Well I've done 1 so far using Distress Inks which is on my other blog cus I forgot to put it on this 1........I'm still getting used to having 2 blogs lol. Also for some reason I cant get my link to my other blog working, its probably me doing something wrong, my dizzy brain does go haywire at times & misfuntions lol. http://www.stickywithicky.blogspot.com/ here is the link if any1 would like to pop over & look around. Right where was I.............oh yeah thats it, I've now used 2 mediums altho the distress inks I still need plenty of practice but eventually it will get better(I hope!!!!). Tonight I have done a card with a Tilda image coloured with Prisma colours & using Sansodor.....I really enjoyed using this medium & I found it really easy, the easiest out of all of them actually not to say though that I'm still learning & still have plenty to learn but I didn't make a bad start. I've also got Derwent pencils as well but I'm struggling getting the right skin tone colour with them & have not used them except for an hour when they 1st arrived!!!!
I have made a card for 2 challenges....1 is Sir Stamp A Lot whose challenge is Lazy Hazy Days of Summer. Well I am originally from Stoke-On-Trent, I was born & bred there but my dad was originally from Northumberland so when my parents divorced & my dad remarried they decided to make a fresh start up in Northumberland to cut a long story short me & my family moved up to & for the last 10 years have lived by the sea. So my idea of summer is lovely warm sun with a gentle cool sea breeze..........hence the colours I've used on my card below......

I love this Tilda I think she is adorable, a pretty little lady who needs a pretty umbrella to stop the sun from burning her!!! The 2nd challenge is Cute Card Thursday & their challenge is School's out for Summer.....you can interpret this as cards for teachers or summer colours & images. Well to me this is summery in a different cool way.....it has been so warm & sticky this year that we have been pleading for some cooler weather, well what could be more cooler than pretty blue's with a tiny hint of warm red....
Here is a close-up of Tilda coloured with those Prisma pencils......

I'm not quite sure if you can see but there is stickle glitter around the edge of her pretty umbrella, she also has a bit of sprinkling of glitter over her but it was hard to catch this in the camera.

The ingredients for this card are papers are from K&Co, its from their Big Stack of 360 sheets... there are SOOOO many gorgeous papers in the pack that I am ALWAYS spoilt for choice. The flowers & butterfly I got from Ebay as to the Broderie Anglaise. The sentiment was from a craft shop about 18 months ago when I 1st tried card making. I distress the card with Tumbled Glass distress ink before adding any papers, I also did the same with every layer that went underneath K&Co paper. I wanted to keep it summery but a bit lady like too as I think Tilda deserves that on this image......she looks so pretty dont you think????
I think thats it, I hope you like this card & if any1 has any tips about colouring with different mediums I really am all ears....I will take any advice I can get.
