Oh So Sweet Tilda

Good Evening!

I finally had a chance to ink up my new little "Sweet Tilda". I think she is absolutely my favorite Magnolia stamp! (Of course now that I've seen the new images from the Hoppy Easter Collection and I will soon have some new favorites!!)



I've tried to use some tips from Suzanne Dean's wonderful tutorial for coloring with Copics to look like Distress inks. You can find Suzanne's tutorials here. She is so incredibly talented! It is definitely a technique that requires a lot of practice...and a lot of paper!!


I've created this card for sketch challenge#93 over at Friday Sketchers. It's another fabulous design from Jacque and I've included her sketch below!



The final photo shows the same card with a different ribbon around the center of the card. I couldn't decide if I liked the crocheted trim or the sheer ribbon better, so I've tried it both ways. The card stock is from SU, the designer paper is Cosmo Cricket. I've added a little chipboard heart that is also covered in SU card stock.

Here is a list of the Copic colors:
E000, E00, E31, E33, E35, R000, R00, R20, B0000 and 0-Colorless Blender

Thank you so much for stopping by and following my blog!
Julie

A lovely card Julie. You did a great job colouring like distress inks. My favourite would have to be the one with the lace but both are lovely.
