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

Congrats on being picked as a Forget Me Not DT member I love this first project would have never guessed that this is what the stamp looked like. You have a few new cards that are all so nice on here. I've been absent in blog land for a while I guess. Tara picked me too but I've been doing mostly layouts and I have such a hard time doing cards when I'm in layout mode. Hope that you can come out to crop night I'll be there next week would be so nice to get together again.Hugs Tania
