Magnolia Christmas

I smile whenever I colour this particular Tilda as she was my very first Magnolia stamp!

I have her sitting inside a Stempelglede Grunge Ornamental Circle (lg) and added a dash of colour with Liquid Pearls, White gel pen and ribbon.

And if like me you need a little bit of inspiration to get those Creative Christmas juices flowing why not treat yourself to the new Magnolia Ink Magazine - it's full of Festive Crafting goodness and an interview featuring Zoe McGrath from Make it Crafty!

Tilda was coloured with Copics (sorry no list) and as per Zoe's tutorial in Magnolia Ink I've used lots of greys!!!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Just Magnolia - Christmas
Make It Monday - Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything goes
Charisma Cards - Anything goes

Thanks for dropping by

Thanks girls, it's finally sunk in that Copics include a lot of greys in the set for a reason! Once you get in to the habit of using them you can get create real depth to your work!

I could just stare at her all day long, but I have to keep commenting, but before I go, just want to say that she is magnificent! Learned a lot just by the comments and the gorgeous details. Will be checking out the grey factor in Copics for sure.
