Sitting Angel Tilda - Magnolia Card

Ah another fabulous day In My Craft Room.  This time I used Sitting Angel Tilda and sat her on Tilda's Table.  She is stamped on Xpress Blending Cardstock in Memento Ink and coloured with Copic Markers.  I made this one for the Friday Sketchers Challenge #142.
 Here's the card ... .... .....


This was a great sketch to work with, the card just seemed to create itself!  Here is a picture of the coloured Tilda image up close ...

and a picture of the ribbon and bow treatment on the left hand side ...

And this picture is of the flower in the top right hand corner.  I took a Prima flower and folded it to create the first (green) layer, then another Prima flower (orange), then a Stampin' Up! Brights button (yellow) on which I tied a bow with piece of white wool.  This one also shows one of the four Brights Glimmer Brads I used in the corners.

Next is a picture of the pearl swirl I used (Prima Marketing) and the sentiment.  I used Tiny Tags by Stampin' Up! and stamped it in Basic Black, then punched it out with the Stampin' Up! Jewelry Tag punch.  Then I added a Basic Pearl to it.
This next picture shows what I did on the inside.  I used a MS punch (corner and straight) to punch a piece of Whisper White cardstock, then I put a piece of the Bali Breeze DSP (retired).  The side where I will put the writing is a Top Note Die out of Whisper White and I put some Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon  around the middle.  The stamp is part of the free stamp set I got for Sale-A-Bration - Sweet Summer.

I think I could have done a better job of colouring Tilda's leggings.  Oh well, live and learn.  Each time I colour one of these images, I learn something.  The main thing I learned while doing this one, is that I need more Copics!!!
Copics used:
Clothes - YR0000, YR02, YR07; Socks - G0000, G21; Skin - E000, E11, E00; Cheeks - R20; Hair - Y0000, Y11, Y21, E97, E99; Bench - E53, E33, E99, E25; Tablecloth - B0000, B91, B95
Bye for now, I hope your day is as awesome as mine will be!  I have some super ladies coming over to create some punchie images In My Craft Room!!!!
