Dreaming Tilda

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday :) I hope you are all having a wonderful week. I just can't stop creating cards with these adorable fairy tale images from Magnolia! :) They are so "me" and I love working with them.




For my card today, I used the castle window, Dreaming Tilda, and Prince Edwin, all from the new fairy tale line, available at Magnolialicious. I first stamped and colored the castle window with copics (W2, W4, W6). Next, I stamped Dreaming Tilda, colored her with copics (dress: R81, R83, R85; skin: E00, E01, E11, RV21; hair; E33, E35, E37), cut her out, and then added some stickles to her hair band. Next I stamped Edwin, colored him with copics (jacket: R39, R37, R35; pants: E33, E35; boots: E55, E57), cut him out, and added diamond stickles to his crown, to the glass slipper, and to the yellow patches on his jacket. Isn't he handsome? :) I then created my card base out of SU cardstock (Rose Red and Chocolate Chip). The design paper is from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I then glued the castle to my cardstock and then popped the panel with dimensionals. Next, I added roses from Wild Orchid Crafts to the windowsill and then I added Dreaming Tilda with dimensionals. Finally, I added Edwin with dimensionals. I meant to take a picture of the card from a side view so you could see all the dimension, but I completely forgot. Needless to say, I used a lot of dimensionals :):):) For a finishing touch, I added some pearls to the corners. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

I think your card is great! Lovely colouring :o) Tilda looks great leaning on the roses on the windowsill and your design paper makes it look like there is ivy and flowers growing up the castle wall.
