Midsummer Tilda(s)

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).

Sketch Saturday #106

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.  😀
(It’s a belated Mother’s Day card for my Mother in law).
