Little Cute Tilda

Hi everybody!

I know it has been a while since my last post and the only reason for that was because I was busy finishing up several projects for the next Magnolia Ink issue. This issue is going to be so fabulous as always but for me this is so special :) I will keep it tight first but I am so sure that all of you will want to get a copy of it once it's out.

But before that, the latest issue of Magnolia Ink is out so grab yourselves a copy :)

Sea Breeze, Magnolia Ink Issue No. 3

And with the new magazine comes the newest Magnolia collection and they are just fabulous! I want each of those stamps in my desk :)

The new stamps, paper and dooHickeys are now available for pre order.

In the meantime, I would like to share a tag I whipped out last night. Don't you just love those sitting Tilda images? They are so versatile 'coz you can arrange it so that she is sitting in a lot of accessories that you have like stamps and die cuts. On this tag, I made Tilda sit on a window die cut.

Fabulous Magnolia Ink Papers - I can't get enough of them :)

This gothic window die is from Memory Box. I covered the die cut with Frantage to make it more vintage.

I colored Tilda using Copics. I used E70-77 for her hair, BG70-78 for her gown, YR21-24 & RV10-17 for her crown. I used a black pencil to highlight some points in the image.

Thanks for dropping by and see you guys again soon :)

Sitting Tilda With Butterfly

Saturday came so fast didn't it? My week wasn't so eventful.. My nephews have finally convinced me to take a dip in the pool but for the first hour I soaked in the kiddie pool which was so shallow I had to sit at the bottom to soak my whole body .. lol .. After that I convinced them to put on their floaters so that auntie can swim in the adult pool.. It puts a smile on my face to remember how silly I looked while I was in the kiddie pool less than 3 ft high with kids.. I felt like a whale :)

I did make a step card. I got this shape from the Silhouette Store last week when they had a sale of their downloadables. Love this shape! I also paired it up with the new dooHickeys from Magnolia.
