A friend sent me some Magnolia images to play with!

Sue in England sent me a pile of adorable Magnolia images and I wanted to play right away. This is Tilda and she's just baked a plate of cookies, at least in my estimation. She was so much fun to colour and I used my Copic markers, of course. The card base is PTI Select White and I added a piece of Lavender Moon c/s. The scalloped edge was made using my SU slit punch and the DP is by DCWV Glitter Stack. The sentiment was created using the alphabet stamp set by PTI known as Simple Alphabet. I added some Lavender Moon dotted ribbon and a flower from Buttons Galore and More.

Here is Tilda sitting on a present. Once again, Papertrey Ink products are featured in the card base, the Lavender Moon twill ribbon, and the little bit of Lavender Moon which was use to mat the image. Copic Markers are the colouring medium I used, along with more DCWV Glitter Stack designer paper. I almost forgot, I used Lavender Stickles on the wings and Gold Stickles on the twine on the present.

Here's Edwin with his broom. I hope he remembers how to use a broom when he's all growed up!

I began this card with Kraft c/s by SU. I stamped the Lovely As A Tree, using Versafine Sepia ink. I dabbed a bit of Kraft White ink to make it feel like winter. To colour Edwin, I used Koh-i-Noor woodless pencils from Gina K. Designs, and blended it with Gamsol and stumps. I really like the way the colour moves around so smoothly. I'm pretty sure these pencils with get plenty of use.

Okay, that's it for this post. I'll be back tomorrow with a new card I made today but haven't photographed yet. I'll work on that later tonight and be ready for tomorrow.

So sweet! Love these adorable cards. I must remember to try the scalloped border with the slit punch. :)
