Yellow and Blue Tilda

Here's my latest, Swimsuit Tilda, ready to go to Operation Write Home for our overseas troops. I'm a little frustrated because neither my camera or scanner is picking up the skin tones correctly. I think I'm going to have to use a better technique for coloring skin tones. My camera isn't very forgiving, I'm afraid. I'll keep trying because she deserves the best and I've seen it from so many of you. She's pretty simple because she has to travel and still fit snugly in her envelope. I've submitted her to Simply Magnolias for her Sunday challenge, using Yellow. Now I'm off to color more Tildas - hopefully with improved skin colors! Wish me luck.

  6. OOh, I like. Isn't it interesting how some cards just instantly appeal to you? This is one. The color choice is part of it. I'm partial to a true yellow. I also love this particular Tilda. Thanks.
