Sweet Tilda Birthday

I’m back today to share my latest creation for Midweek Magnolia. Our new challenge is…

I’ve created a Balloon Easel Card to share with you today using the gorgeous ‘Sweet Tilda with Balloon’ image from the Animal of the Year Collection by Magnolia.


My image has been stamped onto X-Press It Blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured my image with Copic Markers.The colours I’ve used are: Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair - E47, E57, E55, E53, E51; Clothes - R02, R01, R00; Balloon - BG72, BG70.

Here’s a close up of my image.


Here’s one of the card open.
