You Make Me Smile

Hello everyone - I just purchased some new Magnolia (again!!) - can't seem to get enough of these adorable images. Last night I inked up this so very cute Sunflower Tilda (not sure if that is what the actual name of her is - but that is what I call her). It was a beautiful day so I sat outside on my deck and stamped a few images and colored with my copics - it reminded me of when I was a kid with a new coloring book and crayons - how I loved that!! I had the paper choosen before I colored Tilda so I knew she was going to be turquoise and brown. I did struggle with coloring her hair this time I must admit - but was ok with it once I finished. I cut out a couple of extra sunflowers and colored them to add. The designer paper (sorry I never know the paper companies)is very busy so I didn't need to add too much extra to this card. Just so you know I have such a huge stack of paper that I am determined to use up before I start buying more so I never know what company they are from. When I start buying more paperI will keep them labelled I promise. I did add a strip of lace, used my Martha Stewart around the page punch for the outside border and my Martha Stewart punch for the little fence. I used my walnut stain distress ink to ink up the little fence. I used my circle nestabilies to cut out 2 circles from the designer paper - I found the perfect area to cut from to get the nice swirls. I stamped the sentiment from Magnolia, added a couple of antique brads, distressed the edges and layered it on turquise cs. To finish the card off I stamped the adorable little Magnolia bird - colored him in and popped him up. The copics I used were B000, B02, C1, E00, E01, E02, E21, E29, E30, E31, E35, E37, R02, RV09, YR00, YR20, YR21, YR23. Thanks for stopping by to have a look - I am really enjoying reading the comments that you leave - they really make my day! Have a super Sunday - it is raining here again!! It is supposed to get HOT by mid week so looking forward to that.

Your stamping friend
