Silent Night!

Hello Blogging Friends,

I have been playing with my Magnolia's a lot lately.  They are some of my favorites for Christmas stamps.  I have had the Silent Night Tilda stamp for a few years but have never colored her.  I think the flowers were a bit intimidating to me.  So I finally decided to ink her up and put some color to her.  The sketch is by Totally Tilda, so I will be entering it into that challenge.  The paper is by MME Christmas Collection and I distressed the edges of it.  The image is stamped on cryogen paper and cut out with a spellbinders die.  I gave the edges some distress ink.  The snowflake was cut out with a cricut cartridge and I added some glitter and liquid appliqué to add some dimension to the snowflake.  I finished it off with a few buttons and some twine.

Copics used:
Hair:  E50, E31, E25
Skin:  E000, E00, E13, E11, R20
Coat:  YG93, YG95, YG97, W5
Dress/Socks:  E08, E13, E19
Shoes:  E31, E33, E35, E37
Pole:  E21, E25, E29
Flowers:  R24, R27, R89, G24, G94, G99
Ribbon/Bow:  0, W1, W5

Inside papers are by MME and match the front.  The die is a spellbinders die cut and the sentiment is one of my favorites by Brother Sister Design Studio.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Blessings until next time.
