Magnolia Card - Noble Tilda on Traveller Luggage

This card is coloured on Stampin' Up! Watercolour Paper, using Stampin' Write Markers and an Aqua Pen.  I wanted to experiment with a different way to colour my Magnolia stamps so I can create a class or two with them, and keep the price of the class quite low.  This is the card I came up with......
I started with some Watercolour Paper, then stamped Nobel Tilda in Stampin' Up! Basic Black Classic Ink.  I do not have my StazOn ink with me, so had to make do, and this works really well for Watercolouring.  Then I masked Tilda and stamped the Traveller Luggage "behind" with Basic Black ink.  I coloured the images in by putting a small amount of colour in the area I wanted with Stampin' Write Markers, then using the Aqua Pen, I moved the colour around and painted the image in.
When that was all done, I created the card using Stampin' Up! Cardstock, Designer Series Paper, Punches, Stamps and Embellishments.
Here is a list of ingredients for you: (all Stampin' Up! unless noted)
Stamps:  Magnolia - Noble Tilda and Traveller Luggage; Stampin' Up! - Silhouette Sentiments and Lots of Thoughts
Paper:  Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Watercolour paper
Ink:  Baja Breeze, Soft Suede
Markers:  Blush Blossom, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight
Other:  Aqua Painter, Basic Pearls, 1-1/4 and 1-3/8 square punches, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch

On the inside I did something a bit different with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch......
I punched all around the outside of a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, leaving just enough inbetween to hold it all together.  Then using Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake inks, I stamped some flower images from the Hostess set Silhouette Sentiments.
I will be doing a tutorial on how to do this in my next post.  If you are interested in it, I would love you to revisit soon.
Thanks, hope your week has been good, almost the weekend now.  It's hot and sunny where I am right now.  We have moved to Quadra Island just off the coast of Campbell River on Vancouver Island.  This island is so popular even Oprah and Barbara Streisand visit here (no they are not here right now,boohoo). 
Bye for now.....................  Glenda Mollet

Beautiful card, beautiful coloring, excellent instructions! I do have one question: what size is your card so I can gauge the inside for the border punch. Hugs, Cami.
