Actually, I feel likes it my day today!  I had time to particpate in the SCS sketch challenge today and that makes me very happy!  Even better, I got to use another of my new Magnolia-licious Magnolia stamps!! Diana has the new collection in the store (and minis, too!!)  Not only do you get a discount but you get store credit (free money) just for shopping!  Nuthin' better!  Here's the LINK to #301 TILDA WITH CARROTS,  but feel free to stay and look around the store!
 As I mentioned I used this week's sketch on SCS (#394). I colored Tilda with copics, which are listed below.  When I was laying this out I had an image in my head of it as an applique on clothing.  So, then, I HAD to get the sewing machine out and do some stitching!  The upper corner looked bare to me so I threw on some buttons, monochromatic so they don't steal your eye away from the sun and the Tilda.
It's really bugging me that I got something on her chin!  When I finish, I'm going to work to get it off!
Dps are from Papertrey Ink and Bo Bunny. Tilda is raised on dimensionals and then the edges of the image are glued to the paper for a rounded look.  Still trying to decide whether to add stickles.

I'd also like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments (blue and orange)
Everybody-Art challenge (summer)
TipTopTuesday (circles)
Tuesday Alchemy (Button, button....)
Stamp N Plus (Anything Goes)

I love this card. Your colouring is fabulous and the sun just pops. The stitching really adds a lot to the design. Thanks for joining us in our Anything Goes Challenge at Art With No Boundaries. You know, I always get something on my chin when I'm gardening...maybe it's carrot juice :)

I love that you colored her face so that it has depth instead of all just one color like you see most of the time. Great job.
