Now for my creation for this week.

Today I’m using Tilda with Straw Hat from Magnolia’s Butterfly Dreams Collection to create this pretty card to share.


I have stamped my image onto X-Press It Blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair, Boots & Hat - E44, E43, E42, E40; Dress & Socks - BG75, BG72, BG70; Flowers - YG25, YG23, YG21, YR18, YR16, YR14,YR12, Hat Ribbon & Butterfly - Y26, Y23, Y21.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


The pretty paper I have used is from My Mind's Eye and is part of the 6x6 Designer Paper Pad Collectable “Notable”. My image has been cut out using the Floral Oval dies from Spellbinder. I’ve added a bouquet of flowers and some lace from Wild Orchid Crafts.

One last look….
