Sneaky Tilda

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are having a lovely week. Phil and I both have a week off from work and we went to Bournemouth (our nearest seaside resort) on Tuesday and had a fabulous day out, even the rain held off!  Yesterday I celebrated my birthday, I had a superb day and was totally spoilt by my family. I got some fab crafting goodies and at long last I have some proper pen storage. Unfortunately it was raining again so I  spent some time re-organising and playing in my craft room and was whisked off for a surprise lunch. 

Anyway on with today's challenge at Marvelous Magnolia and this time we would like to see 'Flourishes' on your wonderful creations.

I have stamped up Sneaky Tilda (I think she is my favourite from this collection) and used Copics and Spectrum Noir pencils to colour her and sprinkled some gorgeous frantage around the outside. The papers are by Maja from the Vintage Spring Collection, 2nd May and Vintage Summer Basics, 1924. The heart is cut from a memory box die and the swirl is a Magnolia Doohickeys die.  The beautiful lace, ribbon, cheese cloth and flowers are from the Ribbon Girl. The sentiment is a Joy Crafts stamp.

Copics List:
Skin: E21, 00, 000, 0000, R21
Hair: T8, 6, 4, 2, 0
Dress and Boots: RV99, 95, 93, 91, C5, 3, 1, 0, 00

Pencils: 105, 30, 120

We have two lovely sponsors this week:
