Whew! Two Tilda's one day! This was my second card I made for Mother's Day. Of course, I colored with Copic markers, which I am seriously addicted to! This Tilda is slightly taller then some of the other Tilda's so my recently bought Nestibilites were to small for this Tilda. So what I did was whip out my Gypsy and made a round scalloped circle into a oval one!!! It worked and boy did it save my life! I stamped the word "Mother" unto a piece of cardstock, and put some Tim Holtz distress ink on the sides to complete my sentiment. I then got some Stampin Up Filigree charms, which I then colored with my Copic's to match colors I had already used. The laced ribbon on the bottom is more of a beige color but my camera makes all my cards look a lot brighter then they really are! That completed my card!

Midsummer Nights Tilda

I just love the Fairytale Collection that Magnolia just released! This is Midsummer Night Tilda. I colored her with Copic Sketch Markers. This was the first time I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities, and I will now need to buy more. They were fairly simple to use and it gives a since of elegance to the image. I found the beaded lace at my LSS and at first I wasn't to happy with it on the card. When I bought it, it was solid white! I just didn't like how all the white was taking away from Tilda's pretty greenish blue dress. So I got the Copic marker that I had used on the dress and colored the lace! I just heard about using Copic's to color other objects just a couple of days ago! I am so happy I did, because it would have been a pain to try to find lace that matched this card. This is the card I will be giving my mom for Mother's day, and I still need to make one for my Mother In-Law. That's what I get for waiting till the last minute.

Card with Mo Manning, and Copic

I am just loving the Copic Sketch Markers. This is the first none Magnolia image I have colored and I think it cam out great. Not to mention having the right type of paper makes a really big difference. My camera was having a really hard time keeping the image focused once I pressed the shout button, so after many takes this was the best one. I am very disappointed in it since it lost the brightness of the colors and the pink card stock looks really light. Which by the way they are not. I gave up trying as it was 5:30 in the morning and I needed sleep.

Of course it was my fault for joining a swap in the 12Th hour, when everyone has had months to prepare and send in their cards. But, I think I did a good job after all. Plus, I made 10 of these so yes very time consuming and not as fun as just making one card.
