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.
