Sweet Pea Tilda

I have finally been able to get a little breathing room to be able to create. My studio and my blog have been very lonesome. I’ve been going through some pulmonary rehab for the past couple of months and I had to lay off some of my design team duties. Over the next few months it will be makeup time for me.

To start off I decided to create with one of my favorite Magnolia stamps, Sweet Pea Tilda. This stamp is available at StampingScrapping. There’s a lot that’s available at Stamping Scrapping, not just Magnolia stamps. In fact, I purchase most of my supplies here. If Cindy does not have it, I bet ‘cha she can get it for ya'.

On to my little piece of art! Sweet Pea Tilda was colored with Copics. After I completed the coloring, I then die cut her with one of Cindy Echtinaw’s Spellbinder’s Card Creator Dies, Fancy Postage Edge. She was then mounted on Stampin’ Up! cardstock in Certain Celery and Bravo Burgundy.

Copic colors:
Skin: E000, 00, 11, R02, 20
Hair: Y21, 26, E37, 50, YR24
Leaves: G40, 82, 94, 99
Hat, Dress, & Shoes: V91, 93, 95, 99
Background: W000, 0, 1, 2, V91

Other supplies:
Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Floral Corner 1 Spellbinder’s Die D-Lites
Vintage tatting – my stash
A Beautiful Life DP from My Mind’s Eye

Challenges that Sweet Pea Tilda would like to enter:
A Vintage Journey – Anything Tim Holtz (I used DI)
Scrapping4Fun – Flowers
Stampin’ For the Weekend – Anything Goes

That’s it for this rainy Oklahoma Saturday. If you have any questions, please contact me.

  1. This really is a lovely card and you are to be applauded for the way you've coloured that fantastic image. Our rules do clearly say that we are looking for entries which are vintage and strongly influenced by Tim Holtz (not just using a Distress Ink) so unfortunately we won't be able to include you in the prize draw this time but encourage you to enter specific Tim Holtz inspired projects in future at A Vintage Journey.

  3. Your card is beautifully done. I love the color palette you've worked with and your blending of colors is amazing. I also like the design of your card with your Tilda in the center and the green vines framing the opposite corners. The lace running across the center lends a vintage feeling to your card. Thanks so much for joining us at A Vintage Journey. <3 Candy
