Chinese Tilda

Good afternoon bloggers....

Hope the weather is better where you are. It's not stopped raining here since 2pm yesterday!!

I had a great day out last Saturday at the LOTV Open Weekend. I had only intended to buy 4 stamps and possibly some of the new sentiments. Well their cuteness along with the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team's cards got the better of me!! I bought 12 (or was it 13?) stamps and 3 of the new A5 sentiment sheets. Oops! :)

Was also lucky enough to have got a place on Bev's fantastic advanced colouring workshop. Really enjoyed this and hope to put the techniques into practice over the coming weeks.

Enough of my waffle and onto the card.

Today I have a card made using a couple of Magnolia stamps that I've had for a while, but have never seen ink.

I've masked them together to create a mini scene. In doing this the overall image came out quite large so I've kept the layering quite simple.

The image is coloured with copics as usual. Here's a close up.

I've embellished it with some dies, punches,  WOC flowers and a little fan charm I got from Mei Flower
