Sweet Magnolias!

Before I left for vacation, I received my order from They have a great deal on Magnolia stamps and I just love them so much. I got 10 little ladies (I would have gotten more but I had to stop somewhere!). I've been having lots of fun coloring these little girls today. I've colored four images, but this is the first one that has made it onto a card so far. Two others are in the layout stage and the other one I have to go shopping for just the perfect patterned paper. I couldn't believe it but I had NO patterned paper that worked perfectly for her.

Well, here is this little lady. This TILDA is named STYLISH TILDA . She's from the Fall collection and I can't wait to color her with blues and reds...for some Christmas cards.

I used the Copic Color Challenge 19 colors for her clothes and also used the Challenge 22 layout for this card.

I used patterned paper from my stash (I think I got it from Michael's a LONG time ago), some Primas and the tag is from a TAC set that is one of my favorites...Sorry, it's a retired set.

Here is th complete list of Copics used on this image:

Clothes and Shoes
BV00, BV04
G00, G02

Skin and Hair
E000, E01, E51
E09, E15, E44

I think I have the perfect person in mind for this card...I wonder if SHE visits my blog???
I'll be posting a few other cards tomorrow as I have them finished. Just gotta get them together and figure out the perfect layout for each image.
