Tilda with a Rose

Oh my, I am totally in love with the MAGNOLIA STAMP collection. It features angel characters and my favorite right now is Tilda.  I found out that since she is an angel she doesn't have a mouth because      angels speak from the heart....  I didn't know that.

My challenge was not only to create a card with my first Tilda stamp image but to use my copic markers for the first time too.  I have to be honest, they really intimidated me at first, still do but not a much now that I tried them out. I attempted to do some shading and it worked here and there but I need to practice it more. 

My first Magnolia stamp is Tilda with a Rose.  I used glitter to add sparkle to some areas like her stockings, hairbow and wings.  I cut out the rose part and replaced it with a paper flower for added dimension...... I love the way it turned out...... hope you do too!!

Onto the next card now.... come back soon to check out my progress.

Have a nice weekend,

Skateboarder Tag

Hi ladies,

Here's a distress tag I created for my son birthday using the 'Extreme Skateboard' stamp from Stampin Up.
This stamp is so cool and perfect for the distress look I was going for. I played around with black embossing powder to acheive a streak effect that intensified the skateboard illusion....  love it!

I also created a pouch out of an envelop to go with the tag.  I distressed it with the same colors of the tag and embossed silver stars as the embellishment.

My son loved it as I had also added sparkling green chipboard numbers on the backside of the tag revealing a phone number.  He was confused but when he understood that it was a 'his' new phone number he was estatic......  this gift was a huge success!!

More to come, stay tuned.
Lynn :)
