Winter card

I've been on a Tilda kick lately and had to post at least one more before I move onto other stamps. I am completely thrilled with how this one turned out!

The background stamp is from The Stampin' Place. They have some fabulous scenery stamps! I haven't looked at the other stamps, but I'm sure those are great too. The sky looks a little wonky in the photo, but it looks great in real life (thanks to my husband!).

I stamped both images in Palette Noir Black on Stamper's Select White cardstock (both from Papertrey Ink) and then coloured them with my Copics. I didn't shade too much on the images so I'll probably go back and finish that up soon.

The card base is 5.5x5.5 Real Red cardstock. I mounted the main image on a piece of Cool Caribbean. The Real Red grosgrain ribbon and silver cord is also from Stampin' Up.

Tilda with her lantern is popped up on dimensionals (and her boots aren't cut off the card, it's just the photo). Gasp... I just realized I didn't put any Stickles on the card! I will have to do that on at least the wings and lantern light when I go back to shade!

I really like these background/scenery stamps and I have a few more that I need to ink up and make cards with!

I hope everyone is able to think about Remembrance Day or Veteran's Day tomorrow. My oldest son has an assembly today and his class sang a song. It was an awesome reminder of all the people who have and are risking their lives or lost them for other's freedom.
