Friend

Edit to add: This card is sold to Isabelle T. - Thank you so much!
Hello and happy Friday! Again iam in a hurry with my posting for today :-) I played the lottery with this card :-) I spoke with some of my fellow Magnolia DT friends and some of them have recieved the very new Easter stamps already in the mail. So, yesterday i have waited and waited to see if my stamps would arrive too, so i could use them for the card using Kristines sketch for the Friday Sketcher :-) but nothing yet buuuhuuu.. i hope today i will have some mail from Sweden :-) So i picked this lovely Tilda stamp and omitted the hearts she is blowing and added instead some punched out butterflies. I think it does look pretty "springy"

On my card for today i have set the the 2 requested panels not straight to my card. If you like check out my other sample card that could also give you some inspiration how 2 Magnolia images could work for the Sketch over on the Friday Sketcher.

This is a close up shot to show you how absolutely amazingly the Shimmerz paints work for the Magnolia wings :-) I used for my card here the "Pixie Dust" paint. Simply wonderful and not overpowering you can still see the lines of the stamped image underneath.

Sentiment by Amuse Artstamps
Paper: Stampin up Orchid Opulence, Wild Wasabi DP Making Memories 8x8 Spring Fling found at Target the other day :-)
Embellishments: Prima Marketing for bling, Stampin up Eyelet and brads, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Shimmerz Paint in Pixie Dust

Please take a look what Carole, Bea, Heidi, Jaqueline and Murmur came up with using the sketch for this week.

Thank you

You're right about adapting other Tilda's to work through out the year. I think this will enspire others to have a look through their stamp collection and adapt their stamps like you have. This is a truely amazing cards and love the colours you have used.

Another fabulous card! BTW, wanted to thank you for the Copic tutorial in your previous posts! I've been playing with my Copics but still do not have the "hang" of it. One day, I'd like to be able to color half as well as you do!
