Once Upon a Time

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! :) I hope you are having a wonderful day. Things are finally calming down a bit at work so I'll be able to use the rest of the week to get caught up on things. It's still gorgeous weather here, it's going to be in the 80s again today. Love it! :)




For my card today, I decided to use another Tilda image from Magnolia's new Fairytale line of stamps. This particular image is called Spellcaster Tilda and I think she is absolutely adorable :) I inked my image with Memento ink, stamped it onto PTI white cardstock, and colored the image with copics (dress: R81, R83, R85, R89; shoes: E55, E57; hair: Y21, E33, E35; wand: Y21, Y23). I then cut the image out using my rectangle nestabilities. I then sponged around the image with SU's Pretty in Pink ink and then added some Diamond Stickles to the wand. Next, I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Regal Rose and Barely Banana). The design paper is from K&Co's Wild Raspberry stack. I used my SU ticket corner punch on all corners and added pearls. I added a ribbon and a Prima rose for a finishing touch. The sentiment is from Stamping Bella. What do you think?

Thank you all so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Big Hugs, Christine

So adorable Christine!! I just love all these Tilda stamps!! I have some but not alot!! And all the new ones, well any of them in the last year or so are just adorable!! My friend Gina stamped me some older one from one of her friends, but they are on Georgia Pacific CS, and something has changed with that CS( I use to use GP until this) if you use skin colors on this CS (with copics) it turns orange!!! And looks very ugly and not at all pretty!! So I will have to color those with Prisma Pencils. I really need a second job just to pay for my crafting addiction!!lol!! Because it is an addiction, I think I can't live without owning it all, just don't have the money to order it all(or I would)lol!!
I htink Tilda is just beautiful and so is the paper you used. I hope you have a wonderful day, I have been at work since 5:00 this morning!! Yeah I'm on my work computer!!! don't tell anyone!!lol!! I have got to get caught up or my followers will disown me!!
Hugs:)
