Summer Flower Tilda

This is a very short posting.  Here's my latest card that I have just finished.

Isn't she just adorable.  This Magnolia fairy is called Summer Flower Tilda from the Summer Memories Collection 2012.  I got her from Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious.  She is currently out of stock , but check out the fabulous collection of both the full-size and mini stamps, doohickey cutting dies, Memory Box and PoppyStamps dies, and other crafting tools.  

I've colored the image with my coloured pencils--Faber Castell Polychromos and Art Grips, Derwent Coloursofts and Prismacolor Premiers.  I didn't jot down the colours...sorry. I've added some glitter to her wings.  I drew the flowers on the ground myself.
I haven't decorated the inside of my card--which is sooo... unlike me--so I won't show you the inside.  I will probably do that at a later date.

Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar Week 157 - Sketch

What a beautiful card, Norma! I love the rich colors you used for the card itself while using the same colors on Tilda but with such a softer, lighter look. That's why YOU are an artist and I'm not, LOL! It is just lovely!
