Just for Fun!

Happy Wednesday!

I decided to create something using one of my favorite Tilda’s, Japanese Tilda. This was a “just for fun” project, no design team deadlines, or no deadlines that I set for myself. I love Magnolia’s and I don’t create enough with them. And needless to say this is a very short post. I hope you enjoy my little piece of art.

Challenges that I have entered:
Craft Your Passion – use dots
Critter Sketch Challenge #61 – use 2 different punches/dies
Make it Monday #33 – Anything goes
Pile It On #16 – smells like rubber
Copic Creations – What’s your favorite paper for Copic coloring? Mine is Cryogen 80# Iridescent white
Druken Stamper Challenge #63 – don’t use anything that uses electricity

Supplies used for my project:
Stamps: The inside stamps-Lacey and Beaded Bundle Set; Japanese Tilda
Copics: r20, 22, 29, 89; e000, 11; bg10, 18, 72; c1, 3, 5, 7, 9
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black; Ancient Page Deep Harbor, Smooch Illuminate
Pens: Spicas Turquoise, Lipstick, Melon, Olive; Gelly Roll Clear Star
DP: My Mind’s Eye Bloom and Grow; Basic Grey Hello Luscious
CS: Cryogen 80#, Bazzil Rain and Blue Calypso
Dies: Spellbinder's Foliage and Labels 18
Embellishments: Stickles Star Dust; Wild Orchid Roses
