Magnolia's Tilda SC159

Wow, two posts in a day! That doesn't happen often. But I had the time and was in a good mood so what can I say. This is Sketch Challenge #159 from today. I had a really hard time putting it together. I don't know what it was, but It took me so long to fiddle with the different pieces, and in the end I'm not sure that I am totally happy with the end result.
recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia , Karen Foster Alphabet
Ink: Stewart Superior Hybrid in Black, Ranger distress in Pine and broken china
Paper: Biggie Junior water color pad, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Stamper Select White, Basic Grey DP
Other: Tombow markers, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nestability oval, May Art ribbon, Stickles, Spica glitter pen in gold, olive, blue and clear, hole punch, copic markers.
This card shimmers as you shift it in the light. Tilda was stamped on watercolor paper then colored and cut ( for details of watercolor with marker check under tutorials). Next I did up the oval background. It was colored and sponged with blue ink. There is a bit of masking going on. If you look below you can see background before Tilda was glued on. The Basic grey DP was mounted on the red CS and then holes were punched out so that you could see the Old Olive peeking through. Old Olive was embossed with Cuttlebug folder. Stickles were added to the holes. Everything was then mounted up and sentiment added. Thanks for looking again, and have a great night/morning.
