Copic Hello Friend Tilda

Well, this card started out as one thing and became something entirely different but I like the end result.

I started by stamping my Tilda from Magnolia Rubber Stamps on Cryogen white card stock with Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next came the trees from Sutter stamps. I masked each of these, punched out a small circle mask for the moon and then airbrushed the background. The sky is B34 Manganese Blue, the foreground is B23 Pthalo Blue.

To color Tilda's cape and hat, I used YR15 Pumpkin Yellow as a base, shaded with YR18 Sanguine. Using my gold Spica pen, I traced the trim on her cape to give it some sparkle. I also used a clear Spica pen on her wings. Her leggings are Pumpkin Yellow. Her boots are E35 Chamois. Her hair is E13 Light Suntan shaded with E15 Dark Suntan. The lantern is W3 Warm Gray with Y32 Cashmere for the lamplight. That leaves her face and hand, base coat of E00 Skin White, shaded with E01 Fruit Pink, with R20 Blush for her cheeks. I added a white gel dot accent on each of her cheeks. Finally I stamped the pine branches around the edges.

I punched out the snowflakes and added snow glitter from Martha Stewart to it. The Hello Friend is from a Cuttlebug die. Finished size is 5.75 inches square.

I passed on this stamp when selecting my Tilda's. Dangit.

This is again a stunner. Maybe I will see a demo someday on the airbrush for the copics.
