My intention was not to put these three images together on a card, nor was it to make three different cards, using the same image… No, what happened is that I had some difficulties finding the right color tone to go with the beautiful papers by Maja Design, that I bought a couple of weeks ago when I was in Sweden. At first I started out with V12 and some other lilac tones, convinced that the paper had lilac/lavender nuances. However, when I put the colored image onto the paper, I realized that it was the wrong color. My second attempt was with R34 & R32, which weren’t too far off. However; I thought the colors were too dark, so I colored yet another image with R34 and R32, mixing both of them with the Colorless Blender. Voilà! The third image finally fit with both the papers and the flowers I had bought to use with them. Oh well; on a brighter note, I got to practice with my Copics and it never hurts to have some already colored images, lying around at home. (For the record, I’ve added R37 to the second image).
I chose to use this week’s sketch from Sketch Saturday; it’s a great sketch to use when one wants to show off the backing paper. The circles/half circles I cut out with my Nesties (what would I do without them?) and airbrushed with C3/C6 & R85. The main circle I also embossed with the Cuttlebug Roses embossing folder. Finally, I cut Tilda out and placed her on foam, before attaching her to the circle. (I’ve been doing this lately on most of my card; I really like the “pop out” effect.)
So here it finally is; my very first Magnolia card. 😀
