1 Image 2 Cards

Now I've achieved my challenge of actually creating a blog,  I need to set about the task of filling it up so gave myself a challenge to create at least 2 cards from the same stamped image (also helps me to justify buying so many if I have used them more than once they are obviously indispensable!)

Ballerina Tilda from the Fairytale Collection seemed like a very easy challenge (don't want to make things too difficult I am new at this!) She is such a beautiful & versatile image that it was impossible not to match her with every single piece of paper I possess - or so I thought!  Purple is always a favourite of little girls so I coloured Tilda in before I chose the papers - another mistake! Trying to find papers in the same shades as your colouring is a nightmare, I didn't realise there were so many shades of purple.

Stamps: Ballerina Tilda - Magnolia. Ticket - Whimsy
Papers: Papermania.  Labels: Nesties
Flowers  : Wild Orchid Crafts
Butterfly and Frond punch - Martha Stewart
Swirl  & Border - Magnolia Doo Hickey Dies
Ribbon from stash. Colouring - Copics

This time I chose my papers first and coloured Tilda in to match them - sooooooo much easier! Another lesson learnt

Stamp -as above
Papers: Making Memories
Flowers & Pin: Wild Orchid Crafts
Deep Edger & Fronds punch: Martha Stewart
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards
Ribbon from stash. Colouring - Copics

I have entered the pink Tilda into Just Magnolia , Totally Tilda  and Ribbon Girls challenges

soooooooooo funny, I too used to color first the try to match papers. NICE papers. Not so easy, but you did a great job with both of these cards anyways. Brunette Tilda & blonde Tilda. LOVE IT! I think I love the second card better! Thanks for sharing your ribbons & roses Tilda with us at Totally Tilda! Corry & the Team!

Well done on your blog Laurie, beautiful cards. Love the way you've achieved 2 totally different sytles with the same stamped image. The layout and embellishments on the card projects look amazing.
keep up the great work.
