Poor Neglected Blog

I can't believe it's been over two weeks since I last blogged on here! Can't say I've been particularly busy, other than maybe making up Stampin' Up! sneak peek samples, which have been posted here (and will be added to in a little while).

I did spend a pleasant Sunday afternoon recently colouring a few Tildas, and have made two of them into cards now, yay!

This is a little Halloween Tilda which I received in a swap last year and thought I must finally do something with! She's coloured with watercolour pencils and a waterbrush, and the background panels have been stamped with Papertrey Ink stamps (Polka Dot Basics and Round-and-About Sentiments) on Stampin' Up! cardstock in Only Orange and Lovely Lilac, with a Gable Green base. Lots of inking round the edges for a Halloween-y, grungy effect.

This one I'm not so sure about (Note to self: must remember to choose papers first and then colour, rather than just merrily enjoy some therapeutic colouring and then wonder what on earth to do with this!!!). Watercoloured again and using a wide mish-mash of supplies, it's a little busy and I've now gone off the colours. Never mind! :)

Well, that's it for now, will go and find a challenge to join in with. Thanks for looking!


  1. Your tilda cards are so sweet. You're funny Anne, I tend to just color, then think like you do.....LOL

  2. I don't blog everyday like I used to when I first started. Sometimes I just get a little lazy.

    I love the Tilda stamps. I don't own anyone, but I have a few images.

    I love the inking around the edges look.

    I really like the second card. I think it is pretty:)

  3. both cards are fantastic, I really love the look of the second one, funny how we are often unsatisfied with our cards yet others seem to really like them! I think we get sick of looking at them if they have taken a while to make and it distorts our view of them...just a theory! This happens to me all the time! Have a great weekend! hugs Debx

  4. Your Tildas are so adorable, and I especially love the little Halloween card....she is so sweet!

    Have a great day!
