Sitting Windy Tilda

Hello Again Crafty Peeps!

Sorry I'm a bit late with this post this morning but have you ever photographed one of your creations only to realize you don't like it as much in the photo and that you really need to make a quick change or two?  That's what happened with this one.  While putting it together I kept thinking it needed more but the photo showed me that it needed less.

Here is the final result.

And here is the previous one.  The tags were just a bit too much and hid the beautiful floral paper which was the color inspiration.  Besides, those pics came out too dark due to our sketchy weather anyway.  Thankfully this morning is bright and sunny.

My card to share with you today features two Magnolia stamps, one old which is the Spring Fence from the 2010 Happy Easter collection (SO useful!) and a brand new one from the 2015 Sakura collection, Sitting Windy Tilda.  I just LOVE her!  Both are colored with Copic markers and accented with Distress Inks.

I've used a few dies here, including that gorgeous Lace from the DooHickeys Vol. 4 collection.  The butterflies are by Cheery Lynn, the Stitched Rectangle is from Lawn Fawn and the flowers and leaves are Spellbinders.  The papers are by Nitwit collections and printed from my computer.

Copic Markers - Skin: E0000, E000, E00, R20  Hair: E50, E53, E57, E59  Dress and Shoes: Y21, YR23 Fence: E70, E74, E79  Ground/Grass: YG93, YG95, E81, E84, E87, E89  Flowers: YG93, YG95, Y21, YR23, E07, E08

Distress Inks - Vintage Photo, Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Tattered Rose, Rusty Hinge, Fossilized Amber, Scattered Straw, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a lovely weekend!
