Just Magnolia Challenge

Good evening, peeps and happy Tuesday evening to you!

Yay! I finally managed to get a card made for a challenge and I'm just about in time to enter it because I know this challenge closes tomorrow. This week it's a sketch from the lovely Bev and I must say that I really enjoyed working with it. I decided to use Bubbling Tilda as the image since she hadn't even seen ink since I bought her and I've coloured her with Copics (I'll list the numbers below). The DPs are from Magnolia, Papermania Henbury Lane and Crafty Individuals Springtime pad. The pearls and dewdrops are from The Hobby House and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaves have been punched with my McGill Pine punch and the ribbon and lace are from my stash.

Copics used:
Skin - E50, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair - E51, E53, E33, E57
Bubble pipe - YR20, YR21, YR23
Tilda's dress - B000, B00, B02
Tilda's wings - Blues as above + V01, V12, V15
Bubbles - C1, C3
Shadow - W1, W3, W5

I added Stickles Stardust to the bubbles and Tilda's wings and Glossy Accents to the bubble pipe. The circle (cut with my Nesties, of course), is distressed with Milled Lavender distress ink, as is the sentiment, which is from Hero Arts.

I hope you like it. I'm sorry for the gloomy photograph but it's a bit like the skies over Yorkshire at the moment! I can see the purchase of a light tent looming evre closer! It's unusual for me to be posting so much - wouldn't it be great if I could keep it up?!!
