My Heart is Happy

I love love love this little Valentine Tilda! She made me smile from the moment I first opened her package. Coloring her, though--well, I'm awfully glad I watched the tutorial on the Magnolia-licious site--the one of coloring the red raincoat. It made this much easier since I knew which reds to use and how to use them. Finding papers to use with her, though, were a bit more of a challenge, as 'shabby chic' really isn't something I do very often, and yet that seemed to be what she was asking for.

But here she is, ready to be sent off for Valentine's Day, if I can bear to part with her! Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Supply list: Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); DP--K&Company Classic K McKenna; Crystal Stickers Pearls; 5/8" Antique White ribbon (Offray); Nestabilities Large Ovals (Spellbinders); Valentine sentiment by Studio G; Copic markers as shown below.
