My first TOMIC entry: A Pirate’s Life for Me

If you are looking for the Guest DT project, go here.

Hello there! I am posting my first TOMIC entry and boy was it time-consuming to put one of these things together! But, I am very happy with the results!

Isn’t it so cute? I colored Tilda and Edwin with a lot of restraint in the hopes that I would get “higher” highlights. Here are some close-ups:

Tip for Top Tip: Use embossing folders and then cut them apart to create cool elements like water:

I am so happy with the way the this texture fade looks used for the ship deck that T&E are sitting on. Smile
