Porcelain Tilda

Happy Wednesday everyone!! Hope you are all having a great day! Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends!! It's actually cold here today.....around 60 degrees....brrrrr....not a very nice start to July. But it's supposed to be nice this weekend & since we always go to the parade & the fireworks on the 4th, the weather that day is more important!!

Today I played with one of my Tildas that I received from one of my friends. Not sure who sent it....I have so many friends that provide me with images....but thank you to whomever did!!! I wish I could buy every single Magnolia stamp out there....they are so adorable! Unfortunately I wasn't able to buy the summer kit & I'm so sad, because I just saw the stamps today & they are SOOOOOOO CUTE!!!!



Anyway....on to my card....I decided to *finally* break out the Basic Grey Porcelain pad. I bought it about a month ago & have been just gazing at it. I'm not a hoarder.....I just hadn't used the "right" image to justify cutting into these beautiful papers...lol. But this Tilda was perfect.....love the pinks & greens. I used the Friday Sketchers sketch from this past week for my layout....I love it & I'm sure I'll use it again! I colored Tilda mainly with my Prismas & gamsol.....with a touch of Copics here & there....& cut her out. I sponged the oval she's sitting in very lightly with.....brace yourself.....Mauve Mist ink!! Remember that color?? It happened to go well with the pinks in the BG paper. I'm surprised my pad isn't dried up!! I used Bazzill Bling for the matting & for some of the punched flowers.....& Certainly Celery for the leaves. I love how this turned out (not hard to mess up a Magnolia.....they are cute by themselves!!).....& it will go on either Ebay or Etsy as soon as I can make an envelope!




Here's a close up of the cutie patootie.....I just love her outfit, lol!

That's it for now.....still waiting for my goodies from High Hopes....it's so hard to wait, especially since I've already seen the new stamps. They are CUTE....you're gonna want to save your pennies for this release!!!!!
