Cellar Root Door
Hello - it has been quite some time since my last post - I am not sure where the past few weeks have gone but I do know that I have been super busy. I finally have finished my year end at work so that will hopefully free up some more time to be in my craft room. This card is kind of a personal challenge for me. I was given the Magnolia Cellar Root Door stamp and asked to make a card using it. I must admit I am not thrilled about this stamp and it took me 4 cards to finally get a card that I am some what pleased with. I knew right away that I wanted to match this Tilda with the door stamp but the lay-out and colors took me quite some time to figure out. I used many copic markers (the door is mostly colored with
W5, W3, W1, W00, E44, E42, E41, E40) (the sky is BG000 and BG0000). I tried a new technique for Tilda's hair and was quite pleased with how that turned out. The technique was in one of the older Magnolia magazines. I used my circle and scalloped nesties for the background and C.C. Design sentiment and I paper pieced Tilda's dress. I am not sure which paper pad this paper is from as it was all just in my paper stash pile. The butterflies I added at the end are also from Magnolia. Thanks for stopping by for a visit and hope you have a wonderful week.
Your stamping friend, Debbie
