Right Through My Heart

I was looking through some of my papers yesterday and got so excited when I found this sweet Tilda that I had totally forgot that I had stamped up and hadn't colored her yet!  I know she's an older stamp, but gosh, they need love too.

I think Right Through My Heart Tilda is perfect because she reminds me of the Archery team from the Olympics, which I am going to miss and am already looking forward to the winter ones in 18 months, and one of my favorite books I've recently read, The Hunger Games, that is coming out on DVD next week!  I've gotta pick it up as soon as it's in the stores.


I colored her with copics and yep, used Stickles around the dress and on the arrows.  This gorgeous paper is from Graphis 45 called Le Romantique.  I added some flowers with stickles at the bottom to kind of make it look like she was standing in a field with dew on it (Katniss would go hunting early in the morning, hence the dew/stickles!).  I used a piece of silver from the stem of some bridal flowers on the bow.  Instead of ribbon, I used some Scrapper's Floss and a wooden button and gold heart.

Here's a close up of her.  I love her concentration!


I added a flower to the inside and thought she came out pretty nice.


I am entering her in the following challenges:

Hope everyone is having a great day!
