Stamping Tilda...

Well, I was one happy lady today when the postie brought my new tildas!! I have been very excited about getting this new special stamp. I have several other images sitting with their matching papers on my desk just waiting to get made up into cards but I just couldnt wait to ink up this little cutie. I decided to paint with distress inks again, this is my first go with a tilda so be gentle with me lol!!

 I am reasonably happy how she turned out, just not sure the skin is right but I will keep trying as I really love how relaxing this way of colouring is. And as I have been feeling a bit low the last couple of days this was what I needed. 

Anyway, so here is my card, hope you like it,
