Daisy Tilda & Whimsy Candy Winner

Happy Wednesday Everyone! Hope you're all having a great week so far! Today is the 14th and that means it's time to draw the winner from my Whimsy Release Blog Hop Candy-Stop. My personal (named hubby ;-)) picked the random number and that was # 61: Maria-Therese. Congratulations hun! Please contact Denise from Whimsy Stamps for your prize! All winners from the blog hop are also listed on the Whimsy Inspirational blog HERE

It has been a loooooong time since I made my last Tilda card. But finally I managed to color in my newest Tilda. I really fell in love when I saw this Daisy Tilda. She is just so cute, timeless, versatile and can be used for many occasions. To be honest this was also the only one I bought. I really like the Magnolias but I'm not willing to pay these outrageous prices anymore...

Ok here she is and I colored her with Pencils without any blending medium. So no Copics this time. I absolutely enjoyed using my pencils again. I think I'll have to do this more often now. And with the bright, soft and waxy Prismas you can achieve almost Copic like coloring.

I used mainly Prismas to color and also some Derwent Coloursoft and Faber Castell Polychromos. But as I said I prefer the waxy Prismas for this technique. My sentiment is from Whimsy's Fancyful Birthday Notables by Raindrop Echo Designs cut out using the matching Shapeology die. Also the Country Heart die is from Whimsy's Shapeology collection. Swirl die is from Magnolia and the butterly is a MS punch. DP is from an older Making Memories collection called Chloe's Closet. I love it but I only have a few sheets left.The mulberry paper flowers are from my stash. The punched flowers and leaves are made using Nellie Snellen's Floral Punches (punch and emboss combos) available at Dutch Paper Crafts. The film strip is from Tim Holtz. 

Here' is a close-up of the image:
