Tilda with Peonytails

We're getting near the end of our "new" Backyardigans characters and I think Pablo is the only one left! However, you'll have to wait for him because right now I'm showing off Tasha!! This is Tilda with Peonytails colored to look like Tasha the hippo. She and Tyrone have been my favorites with this experiment.

I originally had the peony colored pin, then changed it to tan and finally settled on purple - so luckily I was using a durable enough paper that I could keep adding layers! (I think it's Make it Crafty Blending Stock or Stamping Bella.) But instead of going with something dark, I left h edges in pink with highlights form a white gel pen which I think turned out well.

The chippies I've been using on these cards is from Make it Crafty and are the Mix 'n Match Centres for flowers but I like to use them as is. They'd be really cool with acrylic paint in a flower so maybe I'll try that out on my next project before they're all gone. :D Hope you like Tasha and stay tuned for more Backyardigans fun comeing this week!


  1. Gorgeous Barbara! I love your colouring and she looks cute as a hippo LOL! I seem to colour with a lot of layers just generally....I use the nina but sometimes (I know I have talked to you about this before LOL) it goes shiny! I know my markers might be dirty but might aldo be mme being heavy handed. Should I try a different type of cardstock? Thanks! :)
