A little bit of Tilda

My head really wasn’t in the right place this week, I made my Magnolia card for this week’s Just Magnolia challenge only I did my own thing, didn’t even check what the challenge was – it’s “Green” by the way, do you see green on my card – do you heck as like!  Not even the leaves are green!!

I have used Tilda with Wrapped Heart and coloured her with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers.  Promarkers pastel colours are so much nicer than Copics and blend beautifully.  I used Copics for the skin (E11, 00, 000, 0000, R30) and hair (E47, 44, 41, 40) and Promarkers Duck Egg, Cool Aqua, Soft Aqua, Cerise, Rose Pink, Blossom and Pale Blossom for the clothes, heart and shoes.

And I used Wild Orchid Crafts products to embellish as always.  Guipure lace, 25mm hybrid tea rose, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, seam binding and pearls.  The card is die cut from a Go Kreate XXL Frame die set.

The paper is Echo Park Springtime from Dies to Die For.

I am off to Harrogate later for the GNPE show.  I am taking two early morning workshops then will be doing make and takes at the Lili of the Valley stand all weekend so do stop by and have a play Smile

  39. Hi Bev,
    What a stunning creation today. That is a lovely shape from the Go Kreate die, a little bit different. Aqua is one of my new favourite colours (along with toffee brown) and you have made my day using it, as now I know I haven't wasted money on my latest acquisitions in that colour.
    As to you forgetting the green part of the challenge isn't Duck egg blue also a green, as is aqua? Don't they both come under the heading of bluey greens. If so you are set. Bless you, its nice to know you are human too and make a mistake now and again...LOL!
    This is another card that will have to go into the top 10, a real favourite for me.
    Have a great weekend Linda

  40. Your card is gorgeous! The aqua looks kinda green so I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. Who cares anyway, we just love to see your creations!

  41. Hopefully whoever was judging counted Aqua as Green well is a shade of Green. It is a beautiful card, I love how you have cut into the lace.

  42. Surely the little leaves at the back of your roses are green, Bev! This card is beautiful and in my fav colour Aqua; your colouring is exquisite- just look at the folds in that pinny- really lifelike- just gorgeous Bev!

  53. Gorgeous card, Bev! Sorry I am late with my comment. My computer has been taking a vacation from me! I love the shape of the card...and the lace you used inside looks beautiful. I love the way you colored this sweet girl. And, what a great idea. I just read that you use the flower wires to make those "twirlies". Do you just stick them in an empty spot between flowers, or glue them, too? That is a fabulous idea!

    He IS Able!
    Traci Starkweather

    p.s. And, I think the aqua color is green enough. If it was a challenge for another color like blue, it wouldn't fit in the category. Beautiful!
