Hello, Friends! The Midweek Magnolias has a new challenge for you with a Color Combo…
We picked a photo from Design Seeds (see below) and I just love this Web site for color inspiration and the photos are spectacular.
This week my card features an adorable stamp called “Tilda with Corkscrews” from the Once Upon a Time collection. I don’t know about you but I am “old enough” to remember my mother using strips of fabric for rolling my hair in the evening. She would roll my hair on the fabric in a corkscrew method and wrap it so I would have corkscrew curls in the morning. Today, they call it spiral curls and it’s usually a perm. LOL
I colored Tilda with Copics but I have to give credit to Cinzia. I love her artwork and her coloring always inspires me. I used a similar technique for my folds in Tilda’s Dress. It just looks so natural. Go check out Cinzia’s blog. She does a lovely job on her coloring.
I added a background stamp that I got from Magnolia-licious called “Princess Castle” of the Princes and Princesses 2012 collection. She pairs so nicely with these images. And I used the darling Mice stamp from my Magnolia Stamp Club collection. To be honest, I was humming the Cinderella song “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” while coloring this cutie. It reminded me of the darling mice mending and dressing her in the morning. I have granddaughters that are Disney Fans so you’ll have to bear with me…LOL
I’m entering this card in the following challenges:
CLP – Sketch
Tilda’s Town – Use a Magnolia Background
MDUC – Lace and Flowers
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
We would love for you to join us at Midweek Magnolias and don’t forget to stop over at the DT’s blogs for inspiration on our color theme.
