KL Stampin N Scrappin Challenge #12

Hey, come join us over at KL Stampin N Scrappin for another week of fun with a great color challenge hosted by Risa West! Here is my submission for the challenge. You don't have to have KL Stampin N Scrappin products to play along, but if you do . . . why not use them?!
I used Chef Tilda who is currently all but sold out (she's on sale ya know) and the BasicGrey Cup of Tea Bitsy Set. They aren't tiny at all . . .
but kinda a half sheet of stamps (acrylics) that sell for only $6/set. pretty good deal, I think.

I even tried to stick with the theme when it came to coloring my Chef Tilda, but WOW black hair is tough to color, ya know it?! The little cup on the inside had to be re-dotted so the dots were white instead of all that pink showing through. Can you believe that inside piece was what I started with when I made the piece that Tilda is setting on? Yep, I think it's a scrap piece of rose red (forgot to look it up and its 2 a.m. so forgive me if I'm wrong I will correct in the later a.m. LOL). I pieced it on the black but then decided I wanted it dotty too, so . . . I grabbed the swiss dots folder, then I thought it would look pretty with craft white over it. Although I really love my craft white I have a terrible time waiting patiently for it to dry, so I covered it with clear EP. then it was in between the dots, so I had to make it more uniform and used versamark to color it in more to get the glossy look all over the paper . . . then before you know it --well, it almost looks more red than pink (sigh that's close to pink though and its late so its all good) *wink*

I think Faith aka Markie's Mom would REALLY love this card with all these polka dots, whatcha think?! I hope she stops by! :) That would make my day! I have loved Faith's dotty cards for quite a while now.

Stop by to see what the other girls on the Design Team created, and if you post at SCS or PCP, please use KLSNS12 as your keyword/tag. Thanks!

Inky Hugs and Happy Stampin!

I love this card! Tilda is one of my favorites! Love the sentiment. Hope you are feeling better! We've been fighting nasty colds here to. And being really preggo isn't helping either. lol
Get Better!

adorable and I think you did a great job of coloring the black hair. And I do think that Faith would love all those polka dots. I'm off to check out the challenge.

CUTE Tilda card Kelly and I love how you combined her with the Tea Set stamps! I KNOW... black hair is hard, in fact I tried sticking with the color theme and coloring Miss Kiki La Rue's hair black and I did aweful! So I switched to blonde, LOL. I think you did AWESOME--that white gel pen really does the trick. I've GOT to myself a new one of those, then maybe I can do black hair too! *Ü*

Cute card. I love the little Tilda Chef, worked great with the colors. I think the black hair looks wonderful. I know what you mean about how hard that is to color.
