Glitterpot demo day cards

Hello bloggers! 


I know I have been rather quiet for a long while but that doesn't mean I haven't been making anything. Quite to the contrary actually. I have been making lots of samples for the Glitterpot demo days and for classes and thought I really ought to share a few of them with you all.
As there are so many I'll group them and share them bit by bit. Today I'm gonna show you a few Tilda cards I have made for the Spring Spectacular Demo Days in the Glitterpot on the last May weekend. I really enjoyed demonstrating and have just confirmed I'll be doing it again in September!
And here are my cards:





Click on any image to enlarge them.
I haven't done Tilda cards for ages before this as I had gone off them for a while, but doing these reminded me again of how great they are to colour. I have been using Happy Spring Tilda, Running Tilda, King Tilda and Castle Window. I used a masking technique to get Tilda to look out of the window. All imagesa re coloured with Copics and on the purpley one I used Copics (and DST plus glitter) to make the backing paper. On the last one I used a Copic refill to dye the seam binding ribbon to match the card.
The castle shape was cut by hand from grey cardstock and I sponged on Pumice Stone Distress Ink over a Post-it note mask to get the stone effect, enhanced by a bit of fine black pen. I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory but if you have any questions, as always, feel free to ask!


Bye for now, need to cook the kids dinner...

Wowzer, Alex, I am loving your Tildas! Your castle turret with the trailing flowers is very clever and I also particularly like the dotty shadow on the last one. Perfect colouring as ALWAYS. Four gems! Hugs, Lesley
