Sugared Tilda

Well hello & happy Wednesday, my fabulous friends!! Gosh, last card I made was 2 months ago....I believe we still had snow on the ground back then!! Now, here in Wisconsin, the past few days have been in the 80's & muggy muggy muggy. I could do without the humidity, but it was such a long winter that I won't complain!!

Since it's been a while since I last sat at my craft table, this card took me a looong time to make, lol. I threw away the first image, the coloring was HORRIBLE! I was pretty spent by the time I finished the image so I kept it rather simple.



Here is Tilda in Spring Rain, one of all time favorite Magnolias. Believe it or not, she is colored with Copics!! I do ok with coloring with the markers when I use lighter colors, & this one actually turned out better than the one I had colored with pencils. The papers are Papertrey Avocado & Basic Grey Sugared. I used the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch & lattice heart punch. Some ribbon.....Dew Drops....& Stickles.....& I clear embossed her boots because all rain boots are shiny :)





I stamped the umbrella twice onto a piece of the Sugared paper, used pencil on the edges for shading, cut them out & added some glitter.





Can ya see the shine on her boots??





This Tilda is available at 7 Kids College Fund, which is where I get *all* my Magnolias!! She also now carries the Magnolia Chandelier garlands, & you can preorder the new Magnolia Ink HERE.

Did you know that 7 Kids College Fund is on Facebook?? Just another place to get up-to-date info on their stock!! You can find the fan page HERE.

Thanks again for hanging with me....I appreciate your support & all the messages I've received. It's good to feel loved :)

Wow, girl, I've SOOOOOOO missed seeing your gorgeous work. This is another BEAUTY! Love this Tilda, the sparkle and dimension on the umbrella, and the shine on the boots....and AWESOME job with the Copic coloring. I know what you mean about lighter colors being easier...I feel that way too.

Hi Michelle, I am new to your blog, and excited to see your current card. I just purchased this stamp for my best friend, and then made a card with the image. Then I tucked the stamp inside and delivered it. She loved it. I used the same color scheme you chose too, with yellow accented on the card to make it pop. I accented the umbrella and other areas with stickles. It was so cute. I'm sure someone special will love your card when they receive it. Great coloring! And I love the sparkly trim to the umbrella, and shiny boots, and glittery puddle. Blessings to you, Rea
