Magnolia DT card - Ila's Sketch


I love Ila's Sketch Challenge for Blog Candy! It was such an awesome layout, and let me concentrate on the coloring and accessories instead of how to present it.
stamps: Magnolia berries, leaves, tulip BG, Tilda and birds, High Hopes sun, SU Embrace life sentiment.
Ink: Versamark pad, brown Stewart Superior
Paper: Magnolia paper from their shop, Fabriano Cold Press, Fabriano Hot Press, Basic Grey DP
Other: Tombow Markers, Twinkling H2O's, Gold embossing Pwd, White acrylic paint, Spellbinder nestabilities square scallop and regular, spellbinder tag die, Prima flowers, dew drops, lace trim, decorative trimmer.
Image of Tilda, Sun and berries was stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold pwd. , then colored in using Tombow markers and water brush. Twinkling H2O's were used to highlight. Background was colored with twinkling H2O's. White acrylic paint was used for the dotting. Everything else was easy assembly. Sewing machine was used to add stitching down the sides and hold the ribbon in place.
I am so happy with how this turned out and can't wait to get to work on the next one!!
Hugs,
Sophie
