Okay, I've done it!



Now what do I do?! I'm trying not to panic!


This is the card I made yesterday for the terrific Anne Ryan! She leaves the nicest comments on Splitcoast!


I used two of the stamps I got from Diana Crick here: http://www.magnoliastamps.us/index.php


She picked me as one of the design team members for her US store! That's a huge part of the reason that I started this blog. Thank you, Diana!

I colored this wonderful Tilda with lantern with my copics. When I cut her out I cut off the wings that are part of the image. I didn't think the angel worked for this one.

I have mostly Ciao markers so I will list the colors I used. (No neat picture of the colors as I've seen others do! Sorry)

aqua- BG10, BG09, BG72, skin- E00, E02, R20, hair- Y21, E33, browns- E31, E33, E43, E35, E08 and E77

I cut the oval with my nestabilities, then sponged soft sky and a little baja breeze BEFORE removing it from the cutting die. Then I stamped the snowflakes (another Magnolia fromDiana) in Baja Breeze.
The bg paper is from Kaiser (Jade Garden) and the dotted paper is from Bo Bunny. I punched snowflakes from SU shimmer paper, bit they needed more so I added stickles and the aqua pearls from Kaiser. Layers are distressed with Tim Holtz vintage photo ink. The card base is Hunter Green but I think it's old because it used to have a dark teal look to it. Then there is a layer of Baja Breeze and a layer of Really rust.

I will try, in the future, to explain more about how I color. I will say, for now, that I start with a lighter color because you can always go darker. I DO use the blender quite a bit.
More another time, I promise!
I'm anxious to see how this posts!
Thanks for reading!
Cheryl
