Waterlily Tilda

Morning my lovelies,
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to have some crafty time.
Today is a sad day for me as my youngest son (22) Lieutenant George Knott left for Afghanistan in the early of hours of this morning on his first tour of duty, I am so proud of what he has achieved and can’t wait until I see him either in August or September when he is due to return for his two weeks of R & R, at least I am back at work today so hopefully that will take my mind of it.
Anyway enough blubbing from me, today I am sharing a card which I made over the weekend. I decided to look out some of my old Magnolia stamps which I haven’t inked up for a while; in fact it must be at least 10 months since I used Waterlily Tilda and as I so like to do I have masked her with the Sea Background stamp. I have coloured using Copics and Prisma pencils.

Copics I have used:
Skin: E31, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E37, E35, E33, E31
Dress & Headband: C5, C3, C1, C0
Water: B97, B95, B93, B91
Grass & Trees: YG99, YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91

 Stamps: Magnolia Waterlily Tilda and Sea Background
Dies: Spellbinders, Whiff of Joy, Crealies
All other embellishments are from my crafty stash
Take care everyone and thank you for stopping by.

    You must be so proud of your son Gina. I know I am proud of all our young men who join the Army. My 10 yr old grandson aims to do just that. May God watch over George and keep him safe.
