Tilda in Yellow

It has been so long since I've had a chance to play with my Magnolia's, so I dug out one of my favorites, Tilda With Small Gift, and got to 'work'.  If only all work was this much fun!


I've paired her up with a sentiment from Lili of the Valley's Dreamy Days Sentiments set, and some Magnolia Doohickey flowers topped with Wild Orchid flowers.

Copic colours:
Skin - E000, 00, 93, chalk blush
Hair, shoes, tag - N1, 3, 5, 7
Dress, socks, gift - Y32, 35, 38
Shadow - N0, 1, 3, Y32, 35

This is probably only my second attempt at black hair, isn't that shameful?  I need to experiment more.
