Magnolia Tilda with Pony Tail

Good morning,
 
I hope you are all well and have had a good week.
 
Gosh the summer holidays have flown by; I can’t believe I am back to school next week! I intend to make the most of it by spending the majority of what time is left by crafting.
 
I have made a little scene featuring Tilda with Pony Tail, Bench and the Magnolia Tree. I have coloured it up using Copics and added a few highlights with Prisma pencils.  Behind the image are a couple of stamps from a Marianne stamp set and I have used one of my new toys which is a paper crimper to create a corrugated effect and sprinkled some Frantage over it.  
 
The lace, ribbon, flowers and gorgeous bronze birdcage charm are all from the Ribbon Girl.

 

 Copics I used:
Skin: E31, 21, 00, 000
Hair: E57, 43, 53, 50
Trousers: B99, 97, 95, 93,91

Magnolia 'Tilda with Blue Blanket'

Hello my lovelies,
 
I hope you are well and for those of you that are in England and Wales, I hope you enjoyed the Bank holiday and had some good sunny weather!
 
I am back from spending a lovely week in Lincolnshire with my parents! Mum and I visited lots of craft shops and I was one very lucky lady as Mum treated me to lots of new goodies and spoilt me rotten (thank you Mum).  
 
I have made a card using one of my new purchases, Tilda with Blue Blanket. She is so cute and a dream to colour.
 
She has been coloured with Copics and a few highlights have been added with Prisma pencils. Tucked behind the image is a Cheery Lynn clock die which has had some Frantage added to it. The lace, ribbon, flowers and pearls are from my crafty stash.



  Copics I used:
Skin: E21, 00, 000, R20
Hair: E44, 42, 41, 40
Dress & Shoes: R83, 81, RV000

Take care.
