Did you Hear?

So back at the beginning the month, Melissa kicked things off with a new tradition starting over at Tiddly Inks. It's exciting times, let me tell ya. It's like NEW stuff, but DIFFERENT. We're reigniting the love of Tiddly Inks older images.

Over at Tiddly Inks, we really want to make sure that our fantastic fans get a chance to see some of the older images that Christy has drawn over time. I know as well as anyone that Wryn has been a HUGE hit around blogland, and we're loving that - but sometimes we get caught up in the new and forget to show off the old!!

So in Christys honour of her amazing artwork, both old and new, the Tiddly Crew will be featuring one older image per week (Thursdays) over at the Tiddly Inks blog and their own! Today it's my turn, so let's get to it.

Today I'll be showing off one of my other fave characters.. Lilli Claire.

I started off with my Nutmeg paper pack from My Minds Eye and coloured up Lilli Claire to match. Yellows and blues, yummy! One of my fave things about this character is her HAIR! There is so much freedom to do what you choose with it. What I mean is, there is a lot of open area. You can really practice your strokes and stuffs. HA! What am I talking about!?

I used my new Rolled Daisy die from MFT (that's gonna be given a MAJOR workout) to create a little kraft coloured flower, I then added a yellow brad to the centre and surrounded it with some WOC goodness!! Some yummy strips of ribbon, the twill from The Ribbon Girl and the velvet textured stuff as part of a SMASH* swap.
