Hi, Friends. I hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend. Ours is coming to an end very quickly. I finished a card this afternoon. I had all my papers, sketch and image picked out and ready to go yesterday but needed to put it all together.
I received this sweet little “Tilda with Heart Lace” stamp and other goodies from Magnolia as a secret prize for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Wrapped Up Holiday Contest. And since St. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, believe it or not, I just had to use her. She is from the “You Are So Special” collection.
I colored Tilda with Copics and used my Sharpie White Poster Paint pen to give her dress a polka dot pattern. This is a new technique I thought of while coloring her dress andjust had to try it. It was so fun and easy. The dots are shaded with my W5, W3 & W1 Copics for the shadows on her dress. Here's a close up of Tilda.
I made the butterfly embellishment myself using some Sheer red ribbon cut in a butterfly shape, tinsel glitter, Stickles, beads, wire and rhinestones. I’ve made several of these type of embellies so you are sure to see more of them on my projects.
Here’s the rest of the supplies I used for my card.
Designer Papers – BoBunny Crush CollectionNew Spellbinders – Heart Circles Die
Ribbon – Michaels
Flowers – Wild Orchid Crafts
Leaves – Cut from Martha Stewart Scandinavian Snowflake punch
Pearls - Reflections
These are the Copics I used to color Tilda.
