Happy Birthday Tilda

Happy Sunday night, y'all. I am getting some work done in my office tonight watching the Oscars. I do not usually watch these awards shows, not sure why, just never got into them! I do have to mention, George Clooney, you need a haircut! I mean, c'mon, it's the Oscars! (Oh well, not a fan of his anyway!)


I do have a new Magnolia card to share with you tonight. I used Jam Tilda for this birthday card. I made this using the March sketch challenge on the Magnolia-licious Highlights Blog.

I think I am getting addicted to coloring these cuties! I love that they are so intricate and that you can really do some shading. I used some Basic Grey Lemonade along with some Pretty in Pink. I sponged some PIP ink around the edges. The sentiment comes from Amy R's Birthday Sentiments set. This is such a versatile set and I really love it! It has not seen much love lately, b/c it kind of got lost in the shuffle. I recently re-organized my scrap room and found it. It's like Christmas all over! I will try to post those pics soon, just keep forgetting to do it. I layered some of the new prima roses on top of some other primas I have had for quite some time. I used 2 Martha Stewart leaf punches. Lastly, I am so excited to have my sewing machine back from the shop, that I had to add some stitching to my card. Here is a close-up of Jam Tilda. I used Copics to color her and then masked her off to add the log and to airbrush the sky and ground. Here are the Copics I used: Skin - E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20; Dress - BG10, 11, 13, 72, R81, 83, 85; Hair - E50, 53, 55; Log - E59, 99, 33, 30; Sky - BG000, Grass - YG17, 97

Thanks for stopping by tonight! ~Tori
