My Favorite Magnolia Stamp

Hello, Friends. It’s that time again…The Midweek Magnolias has a new challenge for you this week. We want to see your Favorite Stamp. Personally they are all my favorites in some form or fashion but I had to pick.
So I chose to make a card with one of my very favorites, Tilda with Hawaiian Flower from the Butterfly Dreams collection. I just love this little cutie. She has Spring written all over her. I also love this darling Tulip path so I masked it over Tilda for a springy scene.
I haven’t used these papers in a long time and I was in a purple, yellow and green mood, they are from Kaiser Krafts. I stitched all my panels on Bazzill cardstock and used several layers.
Tilda was colored with Copics and I created a watercolor background for her. The butterfly border is from MS and I cut out a few individual butterflies and added them to Tilda’s scene. They were topped with a few rhinestones and I bent their wings back for dimension. The stamped butterflies got a coat of stickles for a little sparkle.
I added some cute flowers, satin ribbon with a heart shaped ribbon slide and lace. The Vintage Sign is from Magnolia with a heat embossed sentiment from Hero Arts. I threaded some bakers twine in the holes of the sign for a frilly look.

Finally I added cute Queen & Co. stripped pearls to the corners of my card

Here’s a close up of Tilda.

The inside is very simple with the butterfly border on the top of the personal message panel.

Hi Cathy.
Firstly can I say congratulations on being featured as blogger of the month in Magnolia Ink.
It is the first time I have purchased this most inspirational magazine and I love it.

Your card is so pretty and the colours go together perfectly.
It is full of beautiful detail and this particular Tilda image which I have not seen before is gorgeous.

Can I ask how long it takes you to colour an image with Copics?

Crafty hugs
