Ladybug Tilda goes Valentine

Surely you do not think I have flipped my wig...but this is the Ladybug Tilda. And the reason you might think I am a little "off" is because this is the first time I have done a Tilda and this one has been sitting here for almost a year. Truth be told....I did not think my skills were good enough to color her!!!!So, I found a bag of images I purchased because I loved them so much....and now I am "JAZZED" to play. I wanted a Tilda Valentine I covered the Little Lady Bug with the heart...but don't fret...I have an awesome idea and will be back with Tilda and the Lady Bug in the future.LOLDid I ever tell you how much I like to ink stuff!!! My sons ask me whats all over my hands....I tell them ink...remember when "you" used to play with ink and paints and get it is my turn!!! LOL

Oh Carol, this is just stunning, don't know where you got the idea that you wouldn't be good enough to colour a Tilda!!! She is coloured beautifully, wonderful layout and such gorgeous butterflies and flowers, love your stitching and the inside of the card is as good as the outside. Beautiful vase of heart flowers. Its great to get inky hands not so good when it gets on your clothes though LOL, Take Care, Annette and RosannaX:)

Wow Carol you have really rocked Ladybug Tilda. How on earth you have left her so long un-inked is beyond me as your colouring is totally amazing as is this stunning card you have created with her. It is as pretty inside as out and it will be a very special person who has the delight of opening this wee beauty.
Thank you for joining us at Flutter By Wednesday.
