Princess Tilda in pink...

Good evening, my lovelies!  Well, the Summer holidays are in full swing which means crafty time is at a premium!  Days are spent trying to entertain a 10 year old, picking up after a teenager, sorting the garden in preparation for a new shed and washing, washing, washing...partly due to the fact that every warm day results in two soggy clothed boys from swimming in the river!

Whilst trying (this being the operative word!) to sort out my craft drawers the other day, I came across a sheet of Princess Tildas that the lovely Karen had stamped for me an age ago! (No really, it's that long ago, I can't remember!)  So, with boys in river, I sat at my crafty table and coloured all four of them up in different colourways, then over a few days managed to make them into cards, so I'll be sharing them on my little blog this well as my Passion for Promarkers make tomorrow, for which it's my turn to host!  So today, I have Princess Tilda in pink...

...The papers are from my stash and were another gift, this time from the lovely Carole who attends our workshop, who gave me a pile of patterned and plain cardstock...thank you, hunny!!  I kept the layout quite simple and framed Tilda with one of my fave dies, Spellbinders Floral Ovals - they can be a bit of a nightmare for getting out of the dies, but are well worth it!...
...I coloured sweet Princess Tilda with my Pro/Flexmarkers, giving her brown hair.  Colours used :
Skin - Blush, Dusky Pink, Coral
Hair - Walnut, Cocoa, Caramel, Sandstone
Dress - Tea Rose, Watermelon, Antique Pink
Petticoat, gloves and socks - Dove Grey, Blender
Shoes - Cool Grey 1, 3, 4, 5 & Black
I then blinged her up with some small diamantes and a touch of crystal glitter.  I embellished with Nellie Snellen corners (I think!), polka dot satin ribbon, small tea rose and pearls.  A simple sentiment and printed insert finished it complet! Finito! Fertig! Färdiga! Finished!
Thanks for dropping by to see me today, I'll be back tomorrow with my DT inspiration for my Passion for Promarkers Challenge - it's a nice easy one, so I'd love it if you can play along!  Until then, have a great evening!
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
