King Tilda and May Sketch

Hello! It's last minute me again! I finished my card for the Magnolia-licious DT May sketch brought to us by Suzanne Dean. It's a great sketch! You will find so much inspiration on the Mag Highlites blog! Won't you join us in making a card with it? You have the rest of the month to get yours entered, so come on! Oops! I see I forgot to add the sentiment-I'll have to do that!) I hadn't inked up my #214 KING TILDA yet so that's what I picked to work with. The "You are So Special collection is the best! (Until the next one of course!) I see that this image is available in Mini form now and I will have to get an order in! Also, Diana has just announced that there is a new Rainbow Collection coming soon to her store! Oh, my! I will NEVER be able to retire! Here's the LINK to the leaf die from Magnolia-licious. The swirl die is also from the store, but I don't see it right now. Email Diana if you are interested! I used papers from Simple Stories to determine the colors to use on my image. It's got lots of muted, vintage colors so that's the look I went with. I took a lot of pictures so you can see the dimension on our girl! I stamped her twice. On one image I colored only her top and hands. On the other I colored the pants and socks and her face, hair and crown. I cut them out separately and glued them on with dimensional glue. I added glue to have her right leg stand out, too, but it wouldn't stick so I added a small dimensional piece under it and accomplished the same thing.



Gosh, she's cute!! Here are my colors:

E000, E00, R11 and R30

E42, 35, 25 for pants; BG000 and BG10 for her socks
E50, E35, E25, and E29 for her hair.

R27, R37, E42 and R59 for her top. E42 on all lace.

Well, that's it! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Cheryl
