Tilda with Spring Heart

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are all well and have had a good week so far it's nearly the weekend - yay).

We have  a new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia today and our theme this time is 'Seeing Red'. Our fantastic sponsor is Live and Love Crafts

If the words vintage and shabby chic makes your heart beat faster, you will find your haven at Live & Love Crafts! 

Live & Love Crafts is a UK based online store that ships WORLDWIDE. The store is owned and operated by Sandra Mathis, a crafter who is as passionate about the vintage style as she is about customer service and providing a good shopping experience. Live & Love Crafts prides itself on having a website that is easy to navigate with excellent product images. Orders are dispatched fast; usually on the same day received.

Live & Love Crafts stocks a wide range of products from well-loved vintage brands such as Maja Design, Pion Design, Magnolia, Wild Orchid Crafts, Kort & Godt, Prima, Melissa Frances, Maya Road, and the Tim Holtz/Ranger product lines.

The store has a vast selection of laces, ribbons and trims, an assortment of over 200 charms and metal decorations, as well as many other unique embellishments that you can't find elsewhere. To help you save on costs, the charms/metal decos can be purchased singularly and all trims and ribbons are sold by the yard/meter. If you’re looking for products that will inspire and a one stop paper & embellishment shop, look no further than Live & Love Crafts!

I have stamped up Tilda with Spring Heart from the latest Magnolia collection, Lost and Found and masked her with an older stamp, Romantic Window. I have used Copics and Prisma pencils to colour the scene. The shape has been cut out using a Go Kreate Die Large Frame Heart #1.  The Papers are by Maja. My pearl string jumped out of it's box again and I thought it would look quite effective placed around the image. The Heart banner is a La La Land Crafts die and the tag is a Magnolia Doohickeys. The two pearl hearts were originally cream, but I wanted red so coloured them with my Copics. The white flower sprays are from Live and Love crafts and the Roses and Cherry Blossoms are WOC. The lace, ribbon and doily are from my stash. 
Copics I used:
Skin: E21, 00, 000, 0000, R20
Hair: E49, 57, 55, 53, 50
Dress: W5, 3, 1, 0
Shoes: E44, 43, 41, 40
Window: W5, 4, 3, 1, 0
Heart & Flowers: R59, 46, 29, 22, YG99, 95, 93

Pencil: Black
