Magnolia with a difference

OK, now how many of you have seen what my friend Barbara has been doing to Tilda and Edwin of late?

Well I thought I would do something a little different - I have attempted this before but I was not happy enough with the result to share........I hope Pauline will forgive me ♥

I would like you to meet Tilda's cousin!


Anyone have an idea as to what I should call her?

For those interested in how I did it, well I started off by sketching the features lightly in pencil, once I was happy with them I inked in the lines with a Copic Multiliner.
(If you are colouring with Copics make sure you use a pen such as this - or the ink may bleed)

I then shaded the face as I would do for a normal Tilda, but with the added features I was able to give her more depth and most importantly expression.  But I then used my coloured pencils to enchance the features further.

And yeah, yeah, I know it is a Christmas card and it is only April!  But I got caught out last year, leaving it too late to make them all, so I am trying to get ahead of the game and ensure that this year I do not end up buying cards.

Oh and before I forget - does anyone else have this stamp "Holding Tilda"?  If so, what did you have her holding - is there another stamp out there that works for this? 

I'd like to enter her into the following challenges:
(can you believe I found some for a Chrissy card in April!!!)
Cute Card Thursday - #123 Metallica
Moving Along with the Times - Merry Christmas

As always thanks for visiting the blog today

you did a great job giving Tilda facial features, not sure how i like it, a little disturbing to see her with features after having her without any for so long, lol, but you sure did a fabulous job with this

Sometimes I really wish I could step into your picture to get a closer look at what you've done.
Her little pink lips are amazing and the outline which you have made look so so simple .. but it's not.
The shading from the eyes to the nose... and again simple black outlines
Jane if we can't have a tutorial can we have a step by step post...pretty please :o)
How about calling her Mag's after Magnolia.
