Celebrate Your day!

It's Monday, but let's celebrate anyway! I love posting Magnolias on Monday! My Tilda came from Magnolia-licious, but she doesn't seem to be available right now-very popular I expect! You can email Diana at HER STORE to check on when she will be coming in again. This Tilda is from the Raising the Ceiling collection. I recently purchased some white card stock from Card Couture as recommended by fellow DT member Suzanne Dean at Scrap Bitz. I agree with her that the color blends nicely because it stays wet on top of the paper. A big difference, though, from the Neenah Classic Solar Crest white that I usually use is that because the color doesn't absorb into the paper you don't get as much depth and darkness to your colors.
You also have to be careful not to blend too much because the color can get muddy (her hair started to do this before I realized it). I still will use it and my Neenah Classic AND my Papertrey Ink white! Just depends what look I want.

That's the Ultra fine Flower Soft for the grass (why didn't they just make it this way in the first place!) Love it! Want more colors!
The card stock is all SU-Celery, Banana, and Lavender.
The "field" that Tilda is running in is from Kaiser Kraft Lilac Avenue (6x6 pad) Mine came from No Time to Stamp-Sharon Johnson. It has lots more great papers!
Copic marker colors are as follows:
Face skin: E000, E01 and R20
Socks Y21 and Y32
Hair Y21, E99, E25, E08 and E29
top and Pants BV31, Bv00, BV01, BV02, BV17 (top doesn't' have BV17 added)
Time to get ready for work! Thanks for coming by! Wishing you a GREAT day!

Oh, Cheryl, this is indeed a happy Tilda. Your coloring and blending is so exceptional, it's gorgeous. You created such a feeling of depth here and the flower soft is just perfect. I agree, I love the finer flower soft and will sure be getting more of the colors. Gorgeous card....

Oh Cheryl!! What beautiful colours together!! Your colouring is always so so so beautiful - I wish I knew how to do it the very same.
Tilda is simple gorgeous and so happy. LOVE your border punch - can you tell us what it is called?
Hugs, Candy

Great coloring. I too bought the Couture cardstock based on Suzanne's blog. I love it! I agree with you about the "paler" look of the Copics but actually enjoy being able to achieve that lightness I could never seem to capture using the Papertrey cardstock. Before I had trouble achieving a pastel appearance even when I used the lighter colors. I guess like you, I'll keep using both depending on the project....

Maureen said...

How lovely! I wish I could get that paper up here in Canada... I guess it goes on my shopping list for my next US trip ;)

Beautiful card, love the Flower Soft grass too!

Peggy said...

Love it! It is just like she is running off of the page. God bless!

Stampin Mindy said...

Patti.Jo said...

Wonderful card Cheryl! Love your coloring, DP, border and how you did the tag!!! Fantastic work!!!

Lisa Kind said...

Love the colors! So Spring! I love my PTI white and I'm not switching! Isn't it funny how the paper will change how your project will turn out? Hmmm....Love your card, though! I guess I've gotta get me some of that new Flower Soft.

Eulanda said...
