Two First's!

This card has two first time's for me! My very first Tilda stamp! I've been admiring these images for about a year now, and I finally got my hands on some! I traded some doubles of stamps I had for 2 magnolia stamps on Splitcoast stampers. I couldn't wait to get them, and start coloring! The second is, I joined a new challenge blog called Fantabulous Cricut. Every week they have a Challenge Me Monday, and this week's theme is to use a label(not a circle) on your project. I chose to use the Cricut Craftroom free Basic Shapes for the label I used. I measured my stamp, and stretched the label to make the image fit. I do really love the new Cricut Craftroom! It gets me to use my Cricut more, since I can make any image exactly the size I want! Anyway, I colored sweet Tilda in with my pencils and blender pen. I really need to get a flesh tone marker, as of now, I use my blender pen and a blush blossom ink pad from Stampin Up! I can't quite get the shading right on the skintone. So that's next on my wishlist! I used paper from the Lily Bee Designs Picket fence pad, and the sentiment is from Unity. Thank you for looking in, and I'll be posting more Fantabulous Cricut projects in the week's to come!
