Tilda's Crimbo Tag................

Howdie Doodie ya 'al doin'? Well as you can tell I didnt get any crafting done yesterday or last night dont you just hate those days or weekends where nothing goes to plan? Well yesterday I ended up with a house full so couldn't get anything made, I did however get to read my Magnolia Ink magazine which is fab as always!! Last night was just 1 of those nights & I just sat & coloured in between getting up to my daughter every 10 seconds..........lets just say she can be a ickle bugga at night time & its not like you can tell her off...well you can but she normally just laughs atchya......mmmmm what an angel!!! lol The hubby & youngest son were out fishing & the eldest was sleeping at his girlfriend's this it was just the girls....... Anyway I did manage to get a couple of my new stamps inked & coloured & I decided to have a play with my Prismacolors as I have neglected them lately & they had started to get rather upset with me. I have also used 1 of my new stamps that I brought about 2-3 weeks ago....I'm doing well.
Meet Tilda in Winter Night from the crimbo 2010 collection. This is 1 of those stamps that I really wanted but so many places were out of stock & I also wanted the magazine. I eventually found the 1s I wanted at Craft Obsessions it was the 1st time I had seen this shop & I am sooo pleased with it I will def be ordering from these again. Not only was the delivery exceptionally fast they also sent me a free gift....The red fibre on the tag I got free, I got a long length of red & 1 in white....I just think thats such a nice thing to do especially in the economy we are in at the mo. I thought I would make a tag altho the papers I cant remember what they are called but I do know they were from Crafty Emma's Store as to were the flowers, the hat pin & the label die cuts. The cream rose I just inked up a little with 'Brushed Corduroy' distress ink & added diamond stickles around the edges.

Here is Tilda up close & personal...she has been coloured with Promarkers & Prismacolor, list of colours I will add to the end of this post. I have added diamond stickled to the fur of her coat & hat & added Crackle Accents to her lantern. The card she is on I cut out using 1 of my nesties & then stamped my new Magnolia 'Silent Night' stamp inked up with 'Brushed Corduroy' this is the stamp I have had for a couple of weeks I've got a few more still to get through & I gave hubby my crimbo list yesterday of crafting items that he can get me.......he's just gotta choose which 1s to get me lol.....its quite a list & there are still things from Magnolia I want yet....ooops. I have brought him a new touchscreen computer though & my list comes no-where near the same amount as that..........I'm trying to make myself sound better here is it working???? lol

The sentiment is from here & I just chopped it down a bit & inked the edges, everything that has been inked has been inked with the same colour distress ink.
I have tried to keep this tag quite simple & have left room for a message.
List Of Promarkers Used
Skin..... Blush, Oatmeal, Apricot, Sunkissed Pink & Baby Pink.
Coat, Hat, Gloves & Tights.... Burgundy, Crimson & Black Prismacolor pencil.
Socks & Inside of Lantern..... Putty, Honeycomb & Canary Yellow.
Hair..... Cinnamon, Tan & Satin.
Boots & Lantern..... Black Prismacolor Pencil

Well thats it for me Craig & Jake are playing on the 360 Natalie is actually quiet for a bit & the eldest has gone bed ready for work tomorrow so I'm gonna try do some more crafting.......fingers crossed anyway lol.
I have not made this for any challenge I just wanted get a start on my tags cus I plan on making them all myself this year.....but I'm gonna go see what I can enter it into...
Thankyou for popping in & thank you even more for leaving the wonderful comments that you do....they really do cheer me up & bring a smile to my face. You are like my own rays of sunshine....MMWAH.

Sending big huggies to you all
Vicky xxx

Challenges I've Found & am entering..... - Elegance (luxurious thread & glitter of course lol)

Would you believe it my darling ickle daugher is now being a bugga & crying but then when you go in she starts smiling.......aaaarrrrggghhhh......I am gonna look for the three 6's tonight I'm sure they are there you know. Actually she was born on the 6.6 & weighed 6lb 6oz, how freaky is that? I'm tellin ya them numbers are on her somewhere lol.

So gorgeous, honey - I don't really like Tildas, but this tag I loooove!

CraftyC said...

LOL Vicky. Your posts always make me laugh. My Zoe's a bugger at bedtime to. Nearly 11pm and she's only just gone up and I can guarantee I'll be up & down for the next hour. Very nasty for an 8yr old. Well I love your tag and the new stamp. Chasing my tail atm so crafting seems to be out of the window but a little hopping wont hurt! Hope alls going well and good luck with the crimbo list!

Vicky this tag is gorgeous and I LOVE that lined paper - is it from the papaers you mention, or something else?

We have a touch screen computer - It's amazing - you'll all have great fun playing the games! Can be a pain at night when the little flies decide to fly into it tho and spin the page up ;)!!!
