tilda town challenge


ive recently come across the blag named zoe's magnolia cards where she colors tilda to have no black lines.   this card turned out so nice that im going to enter it in the 1th Tilda town challenge the result is a very soft natural looking tilda.  she doesn't have an official tutorial but she does give the jist of it.  so i had to try my hand at and this is what i came up with! :)



 she turned out sooo pretty!  im not quite that great at dong the shading just yet but it's still my first one :)

here's a close up of the little lady.  when i stamped her i tried to use a very light brown, (zoe explains that she uses blue but i didn't have any light blue)  then i colored her with my copics and went over  that with coordinating prismacolor art pencils and tried to soften anywhere that the light brown outlines from the stamping still appeared.  then went over the whole thing with a Fine paint brush and turpinoid to even the pencil makers and smooth it out.

i really enjoy making her, and zoe's work is really inspiring!  and i think with a little more practice i think i can do just as well as she.  :)
