Magnolia Challenge



I created this card for my Magnolia-Licious Yahoo Group's first sketch challenge.

I used Copic markers to color Tilda. I used a blend of dark pink (RV34) and carmine (R37) on her jacket and hat. Carmine on her boots and tights, a blend of olive (G99) and pale olive (YG95) on her shorts and socks. Her hair is a blend of chamois (E35), caramel (YR14), and dark bark (E49). I used a "Jelly Roll" clear glitter pen on her wings, and a white gel pen for the trim on her jacket and shorts, as well as her shoelaces.

I used cream card stock for the base of the card, mounted Tilda on red card stock, and then on patterned paper from a Christmas stack. I used coordinating pattern paper from the same Christmas stack in the corner, and I used red raffia instead of ribbon, and embellished with silver/rhinestone snowflakes. I used 4 clear rhinestone embellishments going down the side. The sentiment is a silver "Joy" embellishment, mounted on matching red card stock.

I hope you like her! I wanted to give her a real winter feel and I had fun making her!
