I had a little fun the other day and actually selected an image from my forgotten collection of stamps. Ooooh, it felt good thumbing through all those image and it was hard to choose! But I settled on this cute Magnolia image from the Christmas Story collection which was also perfect for a Valentine theme. Check it out…
Did you notice anything different by chance?? LOL I’m sure you did! This is Joyful Tilda from Magnolia and I’ve shading in a face with details using my Copic markers. I’ve colored others with faces (just click on the Magnolia tag and you’ll seen them) however, I think this one is my favorite by far!
I stamped the image in brown so it was easy to use her existing eyes as the color of her new eyes. Plus I think I like how the brown stamping turned out so I’ll certainly be using it more and more. As long as I’m not using black to color parts of the image with then the brown blends in more giving the image a softer look.
My colors were inspired by the zipper I bought over the weekend and I had to come home straight away and use it on a card! I even used my sewing maching to stitch it down and add more elements to it. Too bad most of it is colored up but it stll counts as being used. ;D Now I just need to find my missing needle (the one the kids got to) so I can use my sewing maching again. LOL
But wait, there’s more!! For those who are joined in the Magnolia-religion, I also have a “pure” Maggie to share. 😀 This is Tilda with Peony Tails that my daughter colored up. I think she did this card back when I was doing the Backyardigans Magnolia set. Shhh… just don’t tell her it took this long to post it. (o.o)
Thanks for coming by today and whether or not your a Magnolia purist or not, hopefully there was something here today to spark your creativity. ;D Have a great week!
