Tilda on the Ritz

                                                              
Hello everyone.... I was looking through at some of my earlier efforts with Tilda cards, and came across this one.  At the time I wasn't really happy with it, but I now can look at it more objectively.  I colored Tilda with Copic markers, and I have a bad habit of not recording the colors, so I can't say which ones I used, except for the hair (Cool Grays).  I embellished the dress with gold embossing, and also embossed the swagger trim on top.  Her tiara is glittered.  I call her "Tilda on the Ritz" because she looks fabulously wealthy LOL!
