Hydrangeas in June

Hello Lovely Peeps!  I'm so glad you could stop for a visit.  It's been a while.  I sort of lost my mojo for a bit there but it's amazing how it kicked back in when I cleaned up my office and found my desk.  

This is Tilda with Kneesocks from Magnolia Stamps' Sakura collection.  I've colored her with Copic Markers and accented everything with Distress Inks.  I think it's safe to say that she is one of my favorites from this collection since I've used her twice already.

My blog friend Kitty recently did a tutorial on how to make these hydrangea clusters and I had to try them, (her tutorial is HERE).  I didn't have the supplies she used but I improvised with I had. I made them with the MS 3 in 1 Hydrangea punch, an old leaf punch, white cardstock and Distress Inks.

The sweet little Dancing Butterflies and the Woodland Branch are by Memory Box.  The gifts are cut from the Tim Holtz/Sizzix die, Packages and Bows and the Happy Birthday stamp is also by Tim Holtz.  Both the Floral Oval and the Ribbon Banner are Spellbinders Dies.  More of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.

Copic Markers Used - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, R20  Hair: E33, E35, E37, E50  Clothes: V000, V05, V06  Shoes: C1, C3, C5, C7, C9  Shadows: T0, T2
Distress Inks Used:  Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord, Spun Sugar, Shabby Shutters, Bundled Sage, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo

Thanks So Much For Stopping By!

♥ Laura C.
