Waterlily Tilda

Morning my lovelies,
 
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to have some crafty time.
 
Today is a sad day for me as my youngest son (22) Lieutenant George Knott left for Afghanistan in the early of hours of this morning on his first tour of duty, I am so proud of what he has achieved and can’t wait until I see him either in August or September when he is due to return for his two weeks of R & R, at least I am back at work today so hopefully that will take my mind of it.
 
Anyway enough blubbing from me, today I am sharing a card which I made over the weekend. I decided to look out some of my old Magnolia stamps which I haven’t inked up for a while; in fact it must be at least 10 months since I used Waterlily Tilda and as I so like to do I have masked her with the Sea Background stamp. I have coloured using Copics and Prisma pencils.



Copics I have used:
 
Skin: E31, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E37, E35, E33, E31
Dress & Headband: C5, C3, C1, C0

Magnolia 'Tilda with Straw Hat'

Good evening everyone,
 
Phil and I had a day out at the beach today, and OMG it was freezing, the cold wind took your breath away; still it certainly blew the cobwebs away.
 
I thought I would share an Easel card I made yesterday using Tilda with Straw Hat. I’ve had another go at using the black copic pen, I don’t know why but it seems harder to colour with, maybe it’s because I’m not used to it, but I shall persevere and won’t let it beat me!! I have also added a little silver hat charm which I found in the bottom of my charm box and thought I would go really nicely with the card.
 
 
Copics I used:
 
Skin: E31, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: 100, C7, C6, C5, C3, C1, C0
Dress & Hat: BV29, BV25, BV23, BV20
Shoes & Hat: C5, C3, C1, C0

The rest of the embellishments are from my crafty stash.
 
I will be back tomorrow with my Marvelous Magnolia DT card.
