New Tilda stamp...

Hi guys! Well, I'm back with a card made using my new Magnolia stamp, that I got with my $25 voucher from Simon Says Stamp.  She's called Christmas Party Tilda and I chose my colour scheme with Just Magnolia's Challenge in mind - I've never entered this challenge before, but Pop's challenge this week is Anything Goes with an option of Coffee and Cream - so here's my creation...
...I used the church vine and lantern music papers from the 12 Cards of Christmas CD (I was being a bit lazy TBH as these scraps were sat next to my guillotine after using the papers for samples! - but us crafters don't like waste!)  I used a new folder from Crafts-Too that I picked up at Craft-landudno on Thursday, called Snowflake Banner and as usual, all the edges were inked with Vintage Photo.  I coloured Tilda using my Promakers to fit the colour scheme...
...it took me over an hour to colour this image, trying to get my head around the different layers that I needed...Mariska makes it look so easy on her creations, but I persevered and the finished result gives so much more dimension to a coloured image...
...I embellished the card with some roses and chrysanthemums from WOC and some bead sprays that have been hanging around in my box waiting to be used for ages...think I might be using them more often!...
...The pretty embossed rose ribbon came out again and of course, a few pearls, plus a good sprinkling of Glamourdust on the snowflakes, snowflake background and Tilda's dress.  I finished off with one of the Postbox ticket sentiments from the 12 Cards of Christmas CD - a 'Happy' one to fit in with Crafting When We Can's Bingo challenge and I was done!  I am really enjoying using my Promarkers and am actually quite pleased with the results...I would love to receive this card - might just have to send it to myself!?!  Thanks for popping by and I hope you find inspiration in my work!  Lisa X
