St Patty's Day Tilda

I am sorry I have been so quiet on my blogs. I have been battling a head cold, taught 2 Copic classes and finally got my allergy test done. Now I have time to play.

I colored up this cute Tilda today, stamping her on Cryogen white paper with Memento black ink. Copics used:
Face - E000, E00, E02, R20
Hair - YR12, YR18
Top - YG01, YG03
Dress - YG01, YG05, YG09
Tights and Hair bow - YG01, YG03, YG09
Bench - E21, E33, E37
Shadows - C1

I paid particular attention to shading on this Tilda. I imagined there was light shining down on her from the four leaf clovers on the left putting the right side of her in shadow. So I added heavy shading down the right side and the underside of her legs and the bench. So what do you think? Did I achieve my lighting effect?

I used my Scor-It board to add the scores on the dark green panel. The shamrocks are from a Martha Stewart punch. I used my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder on the lighter green before punching them out. Then I layered them on dark green to create more right side shading.

So what did the allergy test tell ya? Find anything new or maybe an allergy you really don't have? I wonder if those tests can tell ya if I were allergic to husband or men in general?

My runny nose has to be caused by something irritating in my life and sofa boy comes to mind first.

Stay warm tonight-that wind will be keeping me home tomorrow.

I have to find a punch like yours-all on sale this week at Mike's 30% off.

Aww, you can't go wrong with any Tilda. She is a great ST Patrick's day card. The score it lines behind her emphasis as well as your shading.
