If you are in an area that is still snowy, hang in there. It can't last much longer. It's a warm and windy day here in the Desert Southwest. Allergy season is here! Yuk!
I have a card to share with you today. It is so pretty! I surprised myself on this one! I used Aquarius Tilda which is my favorite stamp in the new Magnolia Zodiac Collection. You can purchase her at Magnolia-licious. I just love the design of this sweet stamp. For my card, I chose to use the blues and greens of water. Here is my card:
Don't ask me how I got the photo colors so nicely, I haven't a clue! I did exactly the same procedure that I always do! Go figure! Maybe my camera liked the card, too! LOL
Here are some details about the card and image. I chose to do some heat embossing on the image of our little Tilda. Her hair flowers have been embossed with pale yellow. On the water urn, I embossed the rim, line, and details in gold embossing powder. The water stream and puddle are done in crystal. Tilda has been colored using a combination of Inktense Pencils and Distress Inks. There is a gold heart charm in the upper left. Oh, and I took out my stash of vellum and put that to good use, too! The Magnolia doily as well as the frame around Tilda are double layers of vellum - white and pale blue - so that the color is visible. I've inked the edge of the mat in Celadon. A little lace (which I chose because it reminded me of waves), some pale blue rhinestones, cheesecloth, ribbon, and flowers finish the front of the card.
I really love how this card turned out!
