A Fairytale Life!

Good Morning Blogging Friends!

We are half way thru the week!!!  I had so much fun making this card, as I used my favorite colors and my Tilda stamp.  They are the sweetest stamps.  I have been taking one of the CMC online copic classes and Suzanne Dean colors from dark to light with her copics.  I have always colored light to dark.  But her reasons certainly make sense.  So I practiced my technique on this card coloring dark to light. It worked!!

My image is Magnolia, Fairytale Tilda. I found a sketch over at Simply Magnolia (link below) and I was set to go!  When I started making this card, I was not sure what I would do with it, but once I finished, I knew exactly who would receive it.  I can't tell you yet, she may be peeking at my blog between now and when she receives the card.  Shhhh...

I have no idea who the paper is by, but I started out with the paisley white paper with green and pink and picked my others from there.  I added some lace and pearls.  After I colored the image, I used B93 to airbrush around the image.  The image is colored on cryogen paper.  The inside is done with the same layout as the front to bring it all together.  I did not stamp my sentiment because if I do, it will give it away.
