I used this super cute Skateboard Tilda… she’s been playing hard… she must’ve skinned her knee and forgot to pull her jeans back down! lol  Behind her is the Vintage Swedish Background stamp.

I colored with Distress Markers…her hair got a little dark, oops, I used Vintage Photo first but didn’t like it so I went back and used Gathered Twigs over it.  Next time I’m just going to use Gathered Twigs and see what that looks like.

Her face is a light wash of Vintage Photo and then Tattered Rose,  like I did in a video…under the header photo you’ll find the video tab…pull down.

Shirt  and tennis shoes are Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick.  Faded Jeans on the jeans.  Tree trunks are Gathered Twigs.  Grass is Mowed Lawn.  Sidewalk is Pumice Stone.  Skateboard is Shaded Lilac. Sky is Tumbled Glass.

Stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink on Canson Motval 90# watercolor paper.

I cut the scene with some new (to me) Square Spellbinder dies and then floral corners are from Magnolia.  Flower Swirl Corner DooHickeys die.

The finished card is 5 ½ in. square.

It was fun to color again.  : )  Happy weekend everyone!  Some grocery shopping to do, nothing real exciting.

Well,  not sure I’ve told you, but, our youngest daughter is expecting and it won’t be long until grandchild number 16 is here!!!  woohoo!  We’re excited.  She’s knitting up a storm… she makes the sweetest things.  I’ll have to post something on my FB page.  I have shared a couple photos of what our middle daughter is up to.  She purchased a loom and is weaving… oh my… so amazing!   Our oldest daughter sews and creates adorable things too!  Like my FB page and I’ll share once in awhile what they’re up to.  Link is over on the right.

Thanks for stopping by!  I love sharing and chatting with you! ttul!

  1. Pam all I can say is this is the most adorable card!! I haven’t seen this Tilda with a skateboard…she is so cute. Love the background you used…..my oh my it’s just soooo cute. hugs, Ruth Ann

  2. This is adorable….love all the details. I have been so busy with St Patrick’s Day….that I haven’t had time to make cards. Hoping to fix that this week-end!!!

  3. OMG awesome cuteness – love Tilda and her skateboard – now all we need is the beautiful weather to go along with this card!!! Love the diecuts you used in the corners.

  4. Hi Pam! Things haven’t been so good here so I haven’t had much chance to visit. I’m sure glad I took the time to see what you’re up to today tho. Love your adorable card and your beautiful coloring. Thanks for sharing your colors again. After seeing your video, I bought my supplies but haven’t had the chance to practice yet. And congrats on your good news! I only have two and you’re soon to have number 16, wow! All my best to you and your family! Hugs!

  5. This is just darling! Love Tilda & that background is perfect! And now I have to add that flower swirl corner die to my list of wants! I am so jealous of you with 16 (almost) grandkids! I have one & feel blessed beyond measure. I can’t imagine multiplying that joy by 16! Share some of your daughter’s creations with us!

  6. OH this card is so pretty! I love how you combined the Spellbinder die cuts with the floral corners. You did a fine job of coloring the image. Did you cut her out too? You must have a steady scissors hand.

  7. Beautiful Pam – your coloring is outstanding! Usually when you post I USUALLY BUY!!!! But not this time lucky for me. I am going to have to watch your coloring tutorial — beautifully done. Did I tell you that the last time you posted I went and bought that tree die? I think it has 3 trees on it.
    It is always a pleasure going to visit you!!!!

  8. Pam, Magnolia stamps have always been a favorite of mine, but I’ve never perfected the coloring like you have! This is adorable! So sweet and your attention to detail is wonderful!
    I’m glad you’ve found CASology and I hope you’ll be back for more clean & simple fun in the weeks ahead! 🙂

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
