Tilda with Cherries for a Guest DT spot!

I am so excited that this week, I won the chance to guest design for Simply Magnolia!  Since Magnolia is  one of my favorite stamp lines, how could I resist?  Their challenge this week is a fantastic sketch, which totally suits my card style.

This cutie is Tilda with Cherries from last year.  I've pulled out my airbrush to give her the antique'd background.  I've used red for the second time this week.  I actually enjoy colouring with them, does that make me strange?

I wanted to add a small tag and decided to use a die that works in the Crop-a-dile.  Apparently their dies don't punch well... my thanks to the kind lady at my LSS that managed to get it punched enough of the way through that I could finish it off with my scissors!

The flowers are all Wild Orchid.  I've also used some seam binding and a heart die from My Favorite Things.

Copic colours:
skin - E0000, 000, 00, 11, W0, 00
hair, shoes - E30, 21, 23, 25, 27
dress etc - R20, 22, 24, 27, 29, W1, W3
basket - E21, W3

Of course, I'm going to enter this into some challenges:
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Anything Goes
Magnolia Mania - Floral
TOMIC - Happy Birthday
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Here Comes Summer
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Partytime Tuesdays - Summer Birthdays
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
iCopic - Brown Hair
Drunken Stampers - Birthdays
Simon Says Stamp - Fruity
Do You Stack Up - Birthdays

Now as you may have noticed from yesterday's post, I am actually away this weekend, but will have to try to link these up over the hotel wifi, if it works!  Hopefully this goes up as scheduled, and all is well in Bloggerland.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
