Bee Tilda

Hello Magnolia Friends

I have a CAS card for you today.  This is Bee Tilda from the Spring Fever Collection. I colored her with Copic Sketch markers and I kept the card clean and simple.  The sentiment is from an older Magnolia Collection with I still love to use. The designer patterned paper is one of my favorites and is also from Magnolia.

It's a short post for me today but I hope you found some inspiration in my card.

Have a wonderful week ahead and I'll see you again soon!

Tilda with Spring Flowers

Hi Friends!

I have another card using a stamp from the New Spring Fever Collection.  It's not very often that I get to post twice in a week but I've been trying to catch up.  I'm going to have along weekend at work so I will be in my craft room again by Wednesday night....ish. And I'll be missing my craft room over the weekend.

On to my card, I used Tilda with Spring Flowers. I love her hair.  I am obsessed with coloring hair and I like how Pauline (illustrator of Magnolia Stamps) drew/designed Tilda with her hair like this.  There are a few more stamps that are similar to strands instead of waves or curls.

Here I colored Tilda with Copic Sketch Markers.  It's been a while since I colored with Copic Markers and I was reminded how wonderful these markers are.  As always, I need to practice more. Oh well...

I didn't take more detailed photos because you can pretty much see everything in this photo.  The designer patterned paper is from Magnolia, the DooHickeys used are:  Sakura Branch (Flowers), Rose Leaf,  Bride Bow.

I also used dies from Marianne Designs and Go Kreate and a piece of lace and a paper doily.  And I stained or painted the edges of each paper piece with antique white acrylic paint.

That's it for me today. I hope to see you again soon. And I hope you like my card.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dandelion Tilda

Hello Magnolia Fans,

Can you feel the Spring Fever? Yes, it's definitely spring somewhere.  I know some friends who still have some snow and we had a few snow showers here in Chicago a few times this week.  And it's still cold. But spring is really here, though sometimes it doesn't feel like it yet.

Another Spring Fever is the New Collection from Magnolia Stamps. And the Stamps are cute and adorable as always.

Today, I have a tag using Dandelion Tilda from the Spring Fever Collection. I have colored her with Distress Ink Reinkers. I wanted to do the no-line coloring but there was so much detail in her hair and the flowers that I just couldn't do it with out dark lines.  But I really love her hair.

Here's a closer look at Tilda. I tried a new watercolor paper with this image and I not liking it so much. It absorbs too much too quickly, it was a challenge to blend.  But so far, I'm happy with the result. I probably just need to practice with the paper.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the designer paper is from Magnolia. The butterflies are made using airdry clay.  And I used Magnolia DooHickey Dies for this tag:
Vintage Frames and Tags


Challenges I'd Like to Join:
Craft Heaven: Bingo
All About Magnolia: All About Flowers
Deep Ocean Challenge: Spring is in The Air


Thank you for stopping by today.  I know I've been MIA for a while, but I'll always be here.
Hope to see you again soon!
