Tulip Tilda and a MAGNOLIA-licious Sketch Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope everyone’s week has started out great!

This stamp, Tulip Tilda, has been waiting a couple of weeks to be inked. And I finally made the time. I also purchased some of the new Magnolia roses. These paper flowers are marvelous and well worth the expense.


I originally created her for the MAGNOLIA-licious Highlites March sketch challenge. This is the wonderful sketch:

And then I started some blog surfing and came up with seven more challenges. They are:
Nichole Heady Spring Schemes Challenges: I chose Betsy Veldman's color scheme;
Cooking it up with Katie Challenge #12: Use the Decoupage/3D/Paper Tole technique and use metal;
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 103: Celebrations;
Magnolia Down Under Challenge #37: Birthdays;
Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge #6: Die Cuts;
Cute Daisy May Challenge: Anything Goes;
Flutterby Wednesdays Challenge #100: open challenge; butterflies, fairies, or angels, a must (Tilda is an angel).


The other details for this card is:
Cardstock: Stampin’ Up!, Papertrey Ink, My Minds Eye;
Flowers: Magnolia roses and Hobby Lobby Wedding supplies;
Ribbon: Silk leaf from Papertrey Ink;
Punch: Martha Stewart;
Distress Inks in Peeled Paint and Tea Dye;
Sentiment: Stampin’ Up!
I have also used various Spica and Gel pens.


The Copics I used are:
Smock & shoes: YG21, 25, and 67;
Dress & socks: RV09, 10, and 17;
Tulip: YR01 and 07, RV 09 and 10, YG 25;
Skin: E00, 11, and 13, RV21;
Hair: W1, E34 and 47.

I hope you enjoyed reading and thanks so much for stopping by!
