Parisian Winter Magnolia

Hello stampers!

I have to confess to a slight obsession/ addiction/ LOVE of all things Magnolia lately!  And along with this I'm trying to develop my style a little and make it more European with the flourishes, muted tones, dimensional flowers, lace, etc.  My friend Andrea and I have been researching this for a while!

I've coloured Tilda for the first time with Prismacolors on top of my Copics - and I am loving this technique!

This is one of the new Christmas Magnolias I ordered and I think she is absolutely gorgeous and a JOY to colour.  And I think she just calls out to be made vintage.  We've discovered these fabulous Cheery Lynn dies - which are so detailed - and stunning!  So the butterflies just had to go on this card.  The beautiful pink roses are from Wild Orchid crafts - who offer such a gorgeous selection.  We found the pearl swirls and the spray at Michaels.

Tilda here has just been waiting for the right moment to appear online - and of course today was released the TOMIC Vintage and Lace challenge!  How perfect!

These STUNNING papers are from Websters Pages by the way - that Andrea gave me (THANK YOU) and fit the theme perfectly.

Happy Stamping!
