Bubbling Tilda - Magnolia-licious August Inspiration Challenge


It's time for a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Here's my DT card...

It's our inspiration challenge for the month of August and the ever-so-talented Jane, who is this month's hostess, has chosen this picture for your inspiration.  

As soon a I saw the picture, the butterfly there brought this image of Bubbling Tilda to my mind and I knew I wanted to use her for my card. Then I just used the colours from the picture to choose my papers and to colour the image.
I used my coloured pencils instead of markers on this card--my collection of Faber-Castell Polychromos, Derwent Coloursofts and Prismacolor Premiers.

Bubbling Tilda--so beautiful and adorable and one of my faves--is from Magnolia's Fairytale Collection 2010.  
Check out Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious for a vast selection of Magnolia stamps both full-size and mini.  Take a look also at the dies available there--from Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn.  The items are discounted and as a bonus, you earn 2% store credits to be used on future purchases. 

This is the inside of my card...     

This second Tilda image is of Hello Little Butterfly from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011

I hope you will be able to play along with our inspiration challenge.  To further inspire you, hop over to the challenge blog HERE and have a look at the fabulous card of my DT teammates.
