Dies to Die For - Princess Tilda of the Valley

Hello and a Happy Friday to Everyone


And a "HELLO" to my new follower Cheremene - thank you for joining me - I'm very flattered.

I hope you have all had a lovely week and also hope that you haven't been effected by the horrible rain we have had.  I was driving through Birmingham yesterday and it was just awful - never seen rain like it.  Some poor people were desperately using buckets to try and stop the water from getting into their houses - I hope everything was okay for them.


It's my turn today to post on the Dies to Die For blog and today I would like to share with you a card using the lovely Pricess Tilda of the Valley from Magnolia.  I think this is the very first Magnolia stamp I have used on my blog - amazing, seeing as I have quite a few of them (more neglected rubber!).

Here is a picture of the full card:

The recipe for the card is:

Papers:  Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics (these are just A-MAZING!)
Flowers:  Memory Box Fancy Blossoms
Corner:  Whimsy Corner Die Set
Sentiment:  Whimsy Circle Postmark Sentiments

The image has been coloured with CopicsFlexmarkers and Promarkers

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30
Hair:  E29 E27 E25 E23
Top. Skirt & Boots:  Cloud Blue (Flexmarker), Powder Blue (Promarker), B91 / W1 W0 W00
Foilage:  G46 G43
Crown:  C1 C0 C00

The image has been outlined with a masking technique using Weathered Wood Distress Ink

Before I forget have you been across and entered the Die-ing for a Challenge Blog competition?  If not you can find the link HERE.  Don't forget there is a whooping £25 voucher to spend in the store and oh my there are just some awesome goodies to get your hands on - so what are you waiting for?

Enjoy the rest of your day and I hope you have a nice weekend.

Hi Hazel
I think this is one of the nicest Tilda images, she looks so sweet the way you've coloured her. Those backing papers are fantastic and I love the way it's all put together xx
