New Tilda Cards

Finally have some time to post the cards and layouts I've made over the last week or so. These two cards are for the Magnolia-licious Raining Cards Swap for NEXT month. You heard me, I'm actually making ahead. I figure come Halloween I will be swamped with work, crafting adn Christmas planning.
I colored Tilda with Copics, of course. Love those markers! The background stamp is an image that I received at a coloring class. I have a limited number of stamped images of the dock, and it is a good backgroun to practice my light and shadows. I also pieced Tilda's grass skirt on the first card by coloring both the skirt on Tilda herself, and coloring another skirt off another stamped image of the same. I adgered the top half of her skirt with tape and the bottom half with pop dots to give it a 3D effect.
I realized after I colored the water that I used my blues, so how was I going to color the night sky? Violet to the rescue! Altho it didn't show up well in the photo, it looks great from where I'm viewing it LOL.
I haev more projects to post, but my house is weeping in shame. I guess I sould get cleaning!
