Stylish Tilda


The sun is finally shining today in the Carolinas...we've had our share of gloom lately. Raining Tilda is much better than real rain! This is the card that I made for the March raining group #2 over on the Magnolia-licious yahoo group. I actually played around with my pencils and gamsol this time instead of the copics. I realize that the more I practice, the better I get...imagine that! LOL! However, my supply of pencils is limited, so I have to pick and choose carefully which colors that I need. Also, I heard some chatter about how the prismacolor pencils are constantly breaking, and the sharpening gets a little tedious. Someone then suggested the polychromous pencils from Faber Castell. And, they were right, the prismas break all the time, and the Faber Castell don't. However, I do like the results with the prismas a tad better. Anyone else had this issue? Just my little testimonial!

I just love playing with these Tildas! I mostly have stamped images of them, but I am now the proud owner of a few them. They are expensive, but I will add to my collection slowly as they are the most darling things. Friends and family from home love them because we have such a strong Swedish heritage. On to the pertinent stuff! Thanks for stopping by today! I really appreciate all of your comments and your visits. I even marvel at the fact that I have 19 followers. How cool is that? (I realize there are blogs with hundreds, but give me the moment!!)

Nancy this is wonderful! I love the Prismacolor pencils but they do break A LOT. I also use the Koh-i-noor woodless pencils and love them but they don't have many colors. Hope you are having a great weekend!

This is so pretty! Great job! I use prismacolors alot and I had problems with them breaking until I started using the metal sharpner that came with my 120 set...haven't had one break since then.
I love Tilda's too...and so many more! LOL!
