Tilda with her King Cake!!

Happy Wednesday, y'all!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. The weather here has been lovely and much needed. Things are starting to green up and the kids are excited to play outside in the sunshine. (Yay for me!)

7 Kids has a brand new Challenge this week:

Mardi Gras colors:

Purple

Green

Gold

I decided to make Tilda sitting with her King Cake. (For those of you who are not familiar with a King Cake, see this info. They are a hugely symbolic part of Mardi Gras.)

This is Dinner Tilda and Love Cake for this card. The papers are all Stampin Up. To achieve the Gold paper, I used some So Saffron cardstock and sprayed a few layers of Gold Glimmer Mist over it. It is very deep and shimmery! The flowers were all airbrushed as was the sentiment. The yellow flowers have a touch of gold Glimmer Mist (GM) on them too. I used a water brush to lightly brush the yellow parts of the cake with some GM too. I colored Tilda with Copics (don't remember all of them, sorry)I would love to see what you come up with for this challenge!

Supplies:
Stamps - Dinner Tilda, Love Cake - Magnolia Stamps, sentiment (Amy R Birthday Stamps)
Paper - All SU, Gina K. 120 lb. White
Ink - Memento, Copics
Accessories - Stickles, Copic ABS, Nestabilities, Leaf Punch (Martha Stewart), Gold Glimmer Mist, Flowers (Prima), Rinestones, Ribbon (SU), 3-D foam tape, Water Brush

What a doll, and doesn't she look fantastic in purple? It's hard to believe it's almost Mardi Gras time, so thanks for the King Cake tribute.
