Tiddly Inks rule!


One of the wonderful things about blogging is that you come across some real talent, that you would never have known about through the usual channels, and, for me, Tiddly Inks is one such lucky find.

I had seen some lovely images on people's cards and could tell from the style that they were all by the same artist.....eventually I realised that these came from Tiddly Inks...I googled it... and the rest is history, as they say.

After much oohing and drooling, I eventually managed to choose a few digi images (restricting myself to 'a few' was a bit of a problem) and they sat on my PC for quite a while before I eventually plucked up the courage to colour one in!

This little cutie pie was the result......man - I so wish that I could draw like that!!

As she was a digi, I printed her 3 times and decoupaged her so that she stands out from the CAS background that I created, inspired by an old sketch from Less is More which I really liked.

I coloured her in promarkers, inspired by my lovely NitWits backing papers and threw in a few die cuts for good measure. I even made the flowers using a lovely little flower die that I picked up from the Hobbycraft show in March.

I was really pleased with how this card came out and I think I will definitely use this sketch again some time as I am quite a fan of the clean and simple look.

Finally, here are the challenges that I would like to enter with this card:
