Tiddly Inks Trio

Tiddly Inks is hosting a Spring Blog Hop. So… this post includes three cards that feature Tiddly Inks images and/or sentiments. So fun!

This sweet Tiddly image is named Petite Q. I colored her hair with Spectrum Noir markers, skin with chalks and gown with watercolor pencils and a blender pen. Not sure how I got the crushed velvet texture on the dress but I but kinda like the look!  
For this challenge, I created a circle easel card. To help support the easel, I added petite silk flowers attached with brads (allowing me to enter it into the Tiddly Ink and CAS-ual Friday challenges), used a bright color scheme that includes pink (entered into Cute Card Thursday and DigiStamps4Joy challenges), circle dies (entered into The Paper Shelter challenge). Also, added a pretty sticker crown from Jolee's. To add a bit more bling, I used patterned paper that has metallic gold on one side and metallic gold and cream stripes on the other (entered Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge.)

For this card, I used a Tiddly Ink set named "Froggie Thoughts" to create this shape card. The image and both sentiments are from the set (I love the humorous tone of these sentiments!) The crown is cut from a scrap of gold paper and a random rhinestone from my stash. The front of the card looked a little blah until I added a sticker dragonfly that I received in a prize packet from a WeCraftCards challenge. (Am entering the card into a current wcc challenge named "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" where we are to use a prize won in a challenge. And also in an Art Impression challenge that focuses Winged Things, i.e. a dragonfly. So fun!)

The sentiments on this card are from the Tiddly Ink set named "Froggie Thoughts" and the frog image is from Little Scraps of Heaven. The crown is a sticker from Jolee's. The lily pad is a free digi image that I found here- I copied the lily pad, twice, the flipped it to have one reverse image. Printed them off in color on my printer, fussy cut them. I made a base with 5.5 x 4.25 white cardstock, folded in half to fit into A2 envelope. Adhere one of the lily pads to the front of the card and trim to fit. Open the card and adhere the reverse image to the inside (top), and other image to the inside (bottom). Added the fun sentiments, and a bit of bling on a wedding ring on the front of the card. Since it includes a flower, am able to enter the card into the Simon Says Monday Challenge and SumMoreFun Challenge (reflects the flower on the mood board and also things that float on water.) Since frogs on lily pads often appear in forest ponds am also able to enter it into Kitty Bee Designs Challenge.
