Key Largo Tilda

Hello my crafty chums today I want to bring you a magnolia card I made today

Ok so I have coloured her with Copics now I don't normally make red cards as I am not to keen on them for me anyway love everyone elses red cards but I struggle to pull it of with out it looking tacky and cheap so I don't really know why I picked a red theme lol as I normally avoid it even at Christmas lol.
The DP I used is magnolia from the last release.
The Dies are Marianne's, Magnolia DooHicky tag and DooHicky Corner garland although you can't really see it as I have covered most of it with flowers lol sorry.
Red pin I made myself 
 Flowers are from Mulberry crafts 
Butterfly  Martha Stewart
Leaves Martha Stewart
Ribbon  the range
Sentiment my stash
The Tulle is from crafts u love
and the lace from my stash
so there you go hope you like it.

Distress ink colouring

Hi all I havent done a card today as I have been practicing with my distress ink colouring I am still not getting it right but practice practice I still think I am a little to heavy handed with the ink 
but hey ho 

The first image I have to show you is Christmas hugs magnolia

 I used distress inks on this image did ok untill I messed up the background with to much black trying to create shadowing if I had left the black off it would have been ok I also then made it worse trying to fix it lol grrr very annoying when rest of image was ok

 I did this one with my distress markers I have watched a few tuts and they seem to be able to blend but it was just not happening to me this is the second image the first was a mess instead of going direct to paper with the pen then blending as this just did not work I scrimbled the ink on to a block then added water I also put a thin layer of water on the bit of the image I was colouring it sort of primed it and blended better. the face is a bit to dark for me and messed up the socks looks like she has been wearing them for a week lol and are very dirty so but hey this was the first attempt in colouring with my distress pens the hair I was very happy with and the blue dress turned out ok 

I just wanted to share my journey in colouring with distress ink and pens

Magnolia with pressie

Hi folks well today I have been playing with Tilda again 

So Today I used the above tilda cute I coloured her with Fleximarkers and prisma pencils I am normally a copic girl but wanted to see what the effect was I love soft colours of the fleximarkers the only down side is they are very juicy so you have to be very light on your hand when using them.
The Backing paper is magnolia 
I used a inkylicious Dusting brush on the background (not very well I might add lol) then added some liquid pearl dots around her and a splatter of glitter 
the flowers are a combo of Mulberry Crafts and my stash which I then added some crackle paint picket fence for that shabby chic look.
I ran a peace of DP though a crimper and then added more picket fence 
I also added picket fence around the image and the corners 
The lace and bead trims are from my stash
The pin I made my self
The green foliage is a punch
Not sure if you can really see but I also did a smocking stitch around my card in lilac thread.
So there you go 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges 

Just Magnolia .... Purple and white
