Tilda in her Blueberry outfit!

Good morning! While I had these Cosmo Cricket stamps on my table I decided to make a Magnolia card! I think Tilda's cherries look okay in blue! My stamps came from Diana at Magnolia-licious!
us! Tilda is stamped on Artistico White hot press watercolor paper. It has a somewhat smooth texture and is nearly white. I colored her skin with my copics. Doesn't work as well, but I didn't want to play around with the reinkers for skin.
Then I water colored the rest of her with SU reinkers in soft sky, baja breeze, not quite navy, kiwi kiss and old olive. The bench is stamped on PTI vintage cream and colored with copics. Tilda and her bench are raised on dimensionals.
Thanks for coming by to look! Special thanks to those who have time to comment!
Have a great Thursday!
Cheryl

This is beautiful Cheryl! Of course Tilda can have blueberries instead of cherries!! And cows can be pink & the sun can be purple...that's why I love stamping! Someone just recommended the hot press wc paper to me, I've always used cold press for watercoloring .....I'll have to try the hot...I want to try coloring with distress inks & I think the hot press might be the way to go!! Have a great day!!
