KNEELING TILDA for October Sketch


Hello stampers!  I'm so happy to be sharing my October challenge card for Magnolia-licious today!  Our new challenge goes on the whole month (so you have lots of time to play along!)!  Maureen has brought us this GREEEAAT sketch!  She also wants us to use Orange and Octogons for October! I added a little yellow, purple and green with my orange!

 I've used the new SU purple  IN color for my background and stamped in Vintage Violet on it with my Gingham bg stamp.  I also stamped a piece of pumpkin pie with cajun craze in the plaid.  I cut the Octogonal Marianne die from Daffodil Delight and sponged it with a tiny bit of orange.
this wonderful Tilda is #259 KNEELING TILDA from the You are so Special collection 2011 and IS available at Magnolia-licious!  You can also get her in mini if you desire to! She is holding a ladybug, but as you can see I used a pumpkin stamp from my collection. She has chosen this pumpkin on her visit to the pumpkin patch!!  I colored her in copics, but I bet you knew that!! Her hair is various ys and Es.  I;ve lost track.  Her shirt is just touched lightly with a very light BV for a lavendar shade.  Her clothes and the pumpkin are colored in Y20, 23, 15, 16, and 18.  then I added a bit of E35 to darken her pants. Her skin is my usual E000, R30, and E11.  Her shoes are the same as her clothes with a little more E18 and E35 added.  I couln't resist making them sparkly sneakers!
For the sketch, wonderful DT inspiration, prize info and where to link please visit the Magnolia-licious Blog!
We really do hope you'll join in before the holiday on October 31!!
thanks so much for visiting me here!  I appreciate you so much!!
Have a great day!
Cheryl
