Tilda with Basket

Happy Friday, y'all! It is a beautiful day here in FL and I have a busy day, so I wanted to post this real quick!

I decided to create a shadowbox card. They are super easy to make and the instructions can be found here. The neat thing is they fold flat and still mail in an A2 (4.25 x 5.5) envelope!! I am entering this in the Just Magnolia Challenge for this week - Anything Goes! Wish me luck! I love Wild Orchid products!
This is Tilda with Flowing Hair and she is available over at Magnolia-licious. The background stamp is Summer Background, but appears to be out of stock at Magnolia-licious at the moment. For the background, I stamped it on watercolor paper with some Staz-on and colored it with Tim Holtz Distress inks in the following colors: Straw, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, & Tumbled Glass and an aqua painter. I have not done this in so long, but it was so quick and easy! I airbrushed the primas on the front panel with some R21 to match my Basic Grey Urban Prairie DP. The card base is Cool Caribbean cardstock (retired SU). The fern sprays are from my new Martha Stewart fern punch - so glad to have found another one since my first one broke!! The sentiment is from Amy R's birthday sentiments. I punched it out with a tag Nestie and airbrushed it with some BG000.
Here is a side view, so you can see the dimension.
Tilda was colored with Copics and cut out. I stuck her on the front panel of the card. I think she turned out beautiful! :)
Thanks for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow with a new card from Whiff of Joy! ~Tori
