For You Mum

Hi Everyone,
Today I have a card to share with you all, I received my first order from the Magnolia-licious Store I used Secret Tilda and Magnolia Doo Hickey Die Old Swedish Lace, the store has everything imaginable for all your Magnolia cravings, if you havn’t already you must check them out. For You Mum
The background I created myself ( I didn’t have any DP in the colour that I wanted) I used Kaiser english rose stamp in a random pattern with ranger perfect pearls, I hope you can see it ok in the photo. I followed the sketch by the extremely talented Bev!

9thmaymumsarespecialsketch2This Sketch is for the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge #23 Mums are Special Sketch the flowers on my card are from WOC including the new sweetheart blossoms in white, they are the cutest little flowers I just love them. Wild Orchid Crafts is in the UK, if you are like me and live in Australia, don’t hesitate to place an order. They have excellent customer service and the shipping is very reasonable.
I coloured Tilda with copic markers G0000, RV0000, BV0000, E0000,000,00,44,42,50, R20, W00. I kept her very pale because I wanted the softer look, just a tip to any new copic users like me, when using the 0000 collection wait a little while between layers, because as they dry the colours become much more prominent.
This is the inside of the card.
I would like to enter the following challenges
Magnolia-Licious Colour Challenge #7 – Black , White and One other colour ( I chose Mint )
Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge #23 – Mum’s are Special Sketch
Hope you have enjoyed looking at my creation, I would love to hear what you think.
