My First Magnolia Image Card

I fell in love with Magnolia images about a year ago. I have been fighting the pull ever since then. I knew when I started to stamp and colour these cute little images, I would be obsessed with them. Then the next step would be Copic Markers. Well, I finally took the plunge and made my very first Magnolia card. These cards are 5.5 x 5.5 inches (or 6x6 if you prefer). They have to be larger as the images are quite large. They originate in Sweden, and this is the size of cards they make in Europe. I think the image is called "Tilda With A Pink Heart", but I'm not sure. A friend gave me the stamped image. My colouring is HORRIBBBBLLLEEE, I am very sorry. It is my first attempt and I used Stampin' Write markers to colour her. They do not blend very well, and they were running outside the lines (or it may have been my colouring hahahaha).
Here's what I used:
Stamp: Magnolia Tilda With A Pink Heart and Rowboat
Ink: Memento Black, Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink
Markers: Pretty In Pink, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Creamy Caramel, So Saffron, Blush Blossom, Close To Cocoa
Paper: Sending Love Specialty DSP
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White
Other: Scallop Square punch, 1-1/4" Square Punch, Nestabilities dies, 1" Regal Rose Double Stitched ribbon, 1" circle punch, Candy Dots, White Signo Pen
I sponged Pretty In Pink ink around the large piece of DSP, then I sponged Regal Rose around both of the nesties diecuts. Tilda is sitting on the Rowboat image and is popped up on dimensionals.
Ok now I am hooked on cute cards. I think I will continue to produce them, and I must say I am now hooked on Magnolias (oh dear!!) This new specialty DSP from the new Occasions Mini catty is so delicious. I will be ordering some more of this luscious paper real soon. Each and every sheet has bling on it, can it get any better? Pink and Bling on the same page, oooohhhhh.

Thanks for looking............... Glenda Mollet

Oh Glenda!
I am so excited for you!!
I wish I could click on the image to get it larger - but it won't work today :o(
Your colouring from this distance looks very good and I love your sweet sweet card. Great image LOL
Hugs, Candy

Glenda, I'm just browsing your blog and came across this sweet image. It's pretty difficult to blend much with SU markers, but you did a fine job. SU paper is not the best for the blending technique, and Memento ink is a must if you're going to use Copics. I sure hope we'll be seeing more of your work on the Yahoo group. This is a very sweet card, and thanks for sharing...
