I chose to work with #275 Tilda with Lace Jeans and #404 Mini Wilma with Rose. Both are available at Magnolia-licious right now. I paired them with a combination of dp's by My Mind's Eye: Stella Rose 'Hazel'; Hip Hip Hooray 'Boy'; and Hip Hip Hooray 'Girl'. They weren't designed to go together, but I love how they look! It was a lot of fun to mix things up a bit instead of just picking patterns from a pre-designed paper pad. The gorgeous blue flowers are from KaiserCraft. The pack is called 'Sage' and they, along with many other colors, are available at Love To Stamp. I just love these flower packs! You get a variety of flower types, in different sizes, and varying shades of the same color. THEY'RE AWESOME and a new favorite of mine! I chose a sentiment from Whimsy's 'Magical Mini Letter Seals' set, which is also available at Love To Stamp. The ribbon and big pearl brad are from my stash. You can't really see it in the photo, but I gave the bows a coat of Star Dust Stickles.
I colored the images with a combination of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger DI's. Strangely, I didn't write down the Copic colors, but the DI details are below:
antique linen, vintage photo, walnut stain, black soot, weathered wood, tumbled glass, worn lipstick, fired brick, shabby shutters, peeled paint
On a more personal note, I've got out-of-town guests arriving on July 5th and they're staying til I leave for CHA on the 17th. So, I may not have as much time in my studio as I would like :-( But, as I mentioned, CHA is coming up quick and I CANNOT WAIT! I'll be running the Magnolia Mini Booth, so if you're there I would love it if you would stop by and say 'Hello' :-) This time I get to meet and spend time with another very talented sweetheart...Ruby Montes! Yay! She'll be coloring Magnolia Mini images for everyone to see. And, if I remember correctly, the fabulous Patti Jo Skogquist may be there as well. How awesome!!!
Well, that's all I have to show you today. Thank you so much for stopping in and taking a peek at my work. I always enjoy the comments that you leave, so thank you for taking the time.
Big Hugs to you all!
