Magnolia 'Tilda with Little Pocket'

Evening all,
Just thought I would drop in to show a card I have made a for a friend’s birthday. 
 I put my time to good use last week and I am organised for once lol.
My friend is a crafter and another big fan of Magnolia stamps and easel cards
and her favourite colours are pink and purple. I adore Tilda with Little Pocket
and thought it was a great stamp where I could combine both colours. 
 I am also really into this deep purple satin ribbon at the moment.
 
Copics I used are:
 Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E57, E53, E23, E51
Jump Suit: R83, R81, RV000
Tulips: V09, V06, V04, V01
Fence: E43, E42, E41, E40
Grass & Stems: YG99, YG95, YG91
 Pencils: Black, Dark Umber, Burnt Ochre, Tuscan Red, Sienna Brown
Thank you for visiting my blog.

Saturated Canary 'Princess Zella'

Hello everyone,
I have had another crafty afternoon today as it has been snowing most of the day,
although it hasn’t settled. There is nothing better than sitting crafting whilst it is
freezing cold outside. I have a busy week ahead of me so I have spent this week
orqanising myself so that all the upcoming birthday cards and DT cards are done.

Today I am posting a Saturated Canary card. I was given this digi for Christmas, but this is the first time I have had a chance to ink her up. It took me hours to colour her, although I think I still need a bit more practice. I am also trying out a few new colours with my copics and it is not quite the shade of purple I was hoping for, I think the problem is it is too pink. Unfortunately this shade of purple doesn’t photograph very well either so apologies for the quality of the photo.


Copics I have used are:

Skin: E21, E00. E000, R20
Hair: E37, E35, E33, E31
Dress: V09, V06, V04

Pencils:  Black, Dark Umber

Saturated Canary Digi Stamp: Princess Zella
Die: Nellies Multi Corner
Ribbon,Lace, Pearls and Flowers are from my crafty stash.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
 
Take care
