Another Sweet Tilda

Good Afternoon!

I think I've already mentioned that this little "Sweet Tilda" from Magnolia is my new favorite image so it's no surprise that I've inked her up again for another card!

I found this beautiful sketch over at the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog and I grabbed some beautiful BoBunny paper. I've included the Week #46 sketch below - isn't it a beauty!!

I like to cut two sets of card stock and paper when I create my cards. (This way I have one card to give and one to keep!) Then it's fun to change things up a little bit on each card so that I get to try a different technique or a different set of copic colors or different embellishments on each card.

On this first card, I've distressed the edges of my Stampin Up card stock and the beautiful double sided BoBunny Plaid/Dotted paper. The card is all tied up with some SU Chocolate satin ribbon and the greeting is from the SU Whimsical Words stamp set.

On the second card, I've sewn the edges of the card stock with a zig-zag stitch. I'm really enjoying sewing the layers together with my sewing machine. The satin ribbon is replaced with a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock punched with a Scalloped Border punch from SU and a 1" strip of the BoBunny paper. I've replaced the greeting with another from the same stamp set but stamped the sentiment on a circle instead of the oval from above.
You may also notice that Tilda is a brunette on this card while she's a blonde on the first card.

Here is a list of the copic colors: R20, R00, R000, B000, B0000, E000, E00
Brunette Hair: E31, E33, E35
Blonde Hair: Y11, Y21, E31

Thanks so much for stopping by and following my blog:-)
