Just for fun - Green and Black Secret Box

A while ago I found a lovely tutorial on Split Coast Stampers for a secret box. I loved the idea, but decided to re-size the box to make it taller so I could decorate it with some Tildas. This is how it turned out:


I stamped my Tildas using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on kryogen white card stock. I decided to colour the Tildas using the same colours, inspired by the background paper. Green is one of my favourite colours, but I have sometimes struggled when colouring with copics.

I am really happy with my images, and love the way the greens worked for me. The colours I used are skin: E0000, E11, E000, E00, R20 clothes:YG67, YG17, YG03, YG01, YG0000, YG23, G40, hair: E59, E57, E55, E53, E50, flowers and dots on dresses and bows: R24, yellow hat, shoes flower and flags: Y0000, YR20, Y23, Y26, Y29.

Here is the box opened up to reveal it's secrets:

Here is a close look at each of the lovely Tildas which are all from the Pink Lemonade collection:
