Hello! Happy Friday!
I was working on this Christmas card while I was waiting for my stamps of the new Magnolia Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011 to arrive in the mail. I've received them now, woo-hoooo...can't wait to start colouring the new images. But in the meantime I've finished this one.
Here's a close-up of the Tilda I used for the card front. (Did you notice that Blogger did something to their system and now you can no longer blow up the pictures by clicking on them? I loved that feature!!!...sigh). This is Cozy Tilda from the So Jolly & Under the Mistletoe Collection 2009.
The colouring of the images for this card were done using my collection of alcohol-ink base markers (Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias, Shinhan Touch markers).
Here's a view of the inside of my card. I left it simple because the paper design is quite busy already.
The little angel I've used here is called Sparkling Tilda from the So Jolly & Under the Mistletoe Collection 2009 also. Magnolia stamps and doohickey cutting dies are available from Diana's online store Magnolia-licious. Diana gives you the best service and she has the largest collection of the mini version of Magnolia stamps. Check them out HERE.
