Good Evening Everyone!!! I had a marvelous day today. Can you guess where I spent it??? In my craft room...where else? I couldn't wait to work with one of my new Easter stamps and today was the day. It was so peaceful and relaxing and the card came together so easily. I'll show you in a minute.
In other news, I'm having a banner designed for my blog and it's nearly complete. I saw the prototype this afternoon and I really like it. I can't wait to show it to you. I'm hoping to unveil it by the end of this week. No promises, but that's what I'm wishing for.
Now, back to play time. Here's my creation for today...
Tilda with Newly Hatched Chicken
This sweet little girl is from the 2010 Hoppy Easter collection. #3047 Tilda with Newly Hatched Chicken is available at Magnolia-licious. There is still time to get her and the rest of the collection in time for Easter. Better get to it!
The dp's are also from the Magnolia Hoppy Easter collection! Aren't they just sweet? I couldn't wait to use them. They are available at Magnolia-licious and come in a variety of colors and patterns all in a sweet 6x6 package. They're perfect for your Easter and spring projects and I just love 'em!!! The cs is from Bazzill. Tilda's background was cut with a Nellie Snellen frame die. The ribbons are just your basic craft ribbons from the local craft store. I cut the white lace border with a MS punch. The flowers are from Making Memories and....you guessed it!...Magnolia - also available at Magnolia-licious. The corner embellies are by Melissa Frances and I absolutely adore them.
I colored the entire image with Copic markers and then added shadows with Ranger Distress Inks - walnut stain and pumice stone. I use a dry, flat paint brush when I do this step and it's always the very last thing that I add to the image. It really adds a lot of depth and dimension.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I had a great time creating this card today and an even better time showing it to you. I hope you have a great evening. Try to find some time to color.
