Tilda in Red

I joined the Tilda challenge this week. We were challenged to create a card featuring Tilda, but it had to be red. I created two cards, as I was experimenting with skin colors. One Tilda has caucasian-type skin, while the second Tilda has a darker skin tone.

I had a friend tell me that she would really like to get some cards where the image has darker skin (as she does). Well--that opened my eyes. I've never really noticed, til then, that most images are colored with a lighter skin tone. So, I've been experimenting. I still haven't got the tone I want, but I'm getting there.

Here's Tilda in Red #1:

Here is Tilda in Red #2:

I colored her using my copic markers, and used the martha stewart punch for the edges. I also used a Hero Arts background stamp for the second layer--stamped in versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I also used some pearls from the dollar store, but I colored them with my copics so they matched the card.

Hope you like them! I've entered them in the following challenge:
