Tilda As A Butterfly

Hello everybody!

Now, that I'm a housewife, I'll be frequently showing you new cards and other things I'm making :)
Today I have a Magnolia card to share. I used a 'Tilda as Butterfly' stamp and it belongs to a rather old Magnolia collection of 2009, which was called "Chasing Butterflies". But who said that we always have to run after the new stamps, right? :)

Copic colors I used were as follows:
Hair: W1, W3, W5, W7
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Dress: Y11, Y15, Y17, Y38
Shoes & Pants: W0, W2, W4, W6
Wings: R000, R00, R11, R20 + R81, R83, R85, R89

To tell you the truth, I'm not very pleased with how the wings turned out, so what is left is to hope that practicing on other images will improve my skill :)

The layout is based on the sketch offered by MDUC blog:

And this was my interpretation of it:

  5. Beautiful card. Love the colors. I have to agree with you...why does everyone run after the newest stamps when we all have such beautiful ones from just a couple of years ago. I have Magnolia stamps that I've never colored that are older yet still gorgeous images. I love your interpretation of the sketch and it's obvious you love cardmaking. This card is beautiful and the edge all around it is gorgeous. Thanks for joining us at the Sweet Stampin' Challenge! --Gail
