Tiddly Inks Design Team call

Hi All.... I'm throwing my hat into the ring over at Tiddly Inks for their design call.  I LOVE Tiddly Inks designs - their images are just the cutest ever.

For my sample today I used Fairy Sunny Day available HERE  She is really adorable.  I wanted to try out a watercolouring technique with Distress inks and the Tiddly Inks digital images are perfect for colouring.

Fairy Birthday

I printed little Ms Fairy onto some Strathmore water colour paper and used a variety of distress inks to colour the her.  I cut her with a Spellbinders Label and while the die was still in place, I added the blue background wash. I added some black Wink of Stella to the daisies and some clear Wink of Stella for her wings.  I cut a second label and cut it in half and added to each end of the die cut to make the frame. I layered some PP onto my card base and added the ribbon.  Once I had added the focal die cut, I added some daisies and a spray.  The little circle sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.  It fitted perfectly into a Spellbinders circle die which I sponged with the blue ink.

Here is also another Tiddly Inks card I made earlier this year

Blessings

This one, I used Copics to colour up Wryn Somebunny Loves You found HERE,
then fussy cut and layered onto a Spellbinders circle.  Background PP from a Rosie's Studio Japanica pack, die cut with a Lil Inker's die.  Sentiment by Simon Says Stamp was white embossed onto black card.



Hope the team like my work.... You can see more of my Tiddly Inks cards HERE
