Well with everything that has been going on here this week I just haven’t had any mojo. Each time I would sit down to try and ‘relax’ and colour it would all turn into a kids colouring book and be a mess and I was getting grumpy and so it just made the situation worse.
But today, a little bit of sunshine arrived in my mailbox. Completely unexpected. Last week I had signed up for the Magnolia Stamp Club believing I would be starting from the next release. I was sitting here reading the latest news when DH walks in the door saying “I think you have rubber in this one…” I was a confused as I hadn’t ordered anything and as I opened the parcel and began to pull them out… well let’s just say a little bit of excitement!!
So I have been cheery all day anticipating colouring one up tonight! Now… I know I am supposed to be going all Clean & Simple BUT she begged me!!! heheee 5 hours later I am happy with the result too for once. 🙂
This is Tilda with Balloon and I decided to colour her a little lighter than my usual colouring and thought a pretty green dress with a touch of purple would be quite sweet.
These are ‘COOL’ colours and would work very well with our Make it Colourful challenge to colour with either ‘COOL or WARM’ colours. You still have the rest of today to get your entry in!
Tilda is coloured with the following copic marker colours:
Dress: Blender, G40, YG06, G05, Y00, Y13
Balloon: BV00, BV13, V17
Hair: E30, E33, E53
Skin: E000, E01, E11, R20
Shoes: Blender, E30
Socks: Blender, B60
So with such a pretty part dress on, Tilda didn’t want to be all plain and boring so I had to dress her up a little. 🙂 I also received a nice package from Wild Orchid Crafts with these gorgeous flowers and I had just the perfect colours to match Tilda.
The papers are sooo old. I am trying really hard to start using up my old stuff before I buy new stuff. 🙂
The little pink butterfly is a Doohickey die from my two gorgeous friends in Canada but it was too big so I cut off the tail and cut down the wings and then I stuck on some pretty glitter beads in the centre.
I added some cute little buttons to the corner for the Just Magnolia challenge and I am racing to get it in on time!!
I wanted to add something to the centre of the bow but didn’t really have anything and then I got the idea to use some of my beads. I glued a purple bead to ring that has rhinestones around it and then glued it to the bow. I quite like it!
I added some glitter to the leaves for some shine and called it finished!
