Happy Hump Day Everyone! This has been one crazy week. My husband is in Dallas this week so I'm playing 'single mom'. My son's school is 25 miles away and I'm doing both drop-off and pick-up this week. But, you do what you have to and it's all worth it in the end. Right?
I want to thank everyone for visiting me here and all of the wonderful things you had to say about my first Magnolia-licious GDT card. It's one thing to like your own work, it's another to hear it from others. I truly appreciate it. And, if you haven't yet seen all of the works by the entire Magnolia-licious DT, hop on over to Magnolia-licious Highlites to check them out. They're gorgeous!!!
So, I found some time for crafting yesterday and, I have to admit, it did not flow easily. I really struggled with my painting for some reason. Today, I felt much better, tossed out what I worked on yesterday and re-painted Tilda. I'm sooooooo much happier with the results. I hope you like her...
Tilda with Easter Egg
Well, Easter is nearly upon us so I thought I'd spread a little Easter cheer. This Tilda with Easter Egg is just the sweetest! She's available at Magnolia-licious
. I don't think she's in the store right now, but if you send Diana a message she can get an update for you.
The dp's by American Crafts were the color inspiration. I just love these papers. The gray is such a beautiful accent. The cs is Bazzill Basics. I cut the circle and scallop border with my Nestabilities. Flowers are by both Prima and Petaloo. The pearls are also Prima. I found the pins in the wedding isle at the craft store. The ribbon is just inexpensive by-the-yard from the craft store. I added Stickles to Tilda's hair ribbons and jumper. The egg and flowers also got a bit for a little extra something shiny.
I colored Tilda with a combination of Copic markers and Ranger Distress Inks. That's turning out to be my favorite way of coloring images. I really like the end result of using them together.
So, that's it for today. I have to leave to pick up my son at school. I hope you all find some time to color.
