hugs and kisses

Hello, today I have a new card I would like to share with you. I got an email today from the lovely Sara,  who kindly agreed to exchange cards with me, that she has received this card.

As I was packing the card up I was surprised how far out the butterfly wings stick out. So on the widest points I think the card might be 6.5 inches. I colored Tilda onto Bazzill kraft cardstock and colored her with Prisma Color Pencils in. For the background I used some swirl lines I saw Chris Dark doing on some of her “older” artwork to fill in areas and I always loved it, so I gave it a try too. For that I used my Copic Multiliner.

Hip Hip Hooray Tilda
Paper: Magnolia Mini papers (tealpink)
Sentiment: Amuse Art Stamps or Penny black?! I forgot
Dies: Magnolia DooHickey heart tag, Go Create, Butterfly Joy crafts
Toos> Big Shot, heat tool
Other: flowers, button, Frantage, Gesso, gel pen, doily
