Magnolia Heart Patch Tilda


I decided I needed to do a Magnolia scene card. Stamps used - Magnolia Heart Patch Tilda, Tree with Carved Heart, Tilda's bird & Kithen Bench. The flowers were Habico stamps and the Ladybird and grass were Studio G stamps. The sun was printed from the PcCrafter trial images. The sentiment was printed on my computer then the shape cut using my cuttlebug. The scalloped orange backing was acheiveved by wielding two scalloped cards from the Christmas Cheer cartridge and cutting on my Cricut. Coloured mainly with my prisma pencils with the use of sansador and stumps to blend. Also used copics, prisma markers and Sakura pens. The background is coloured pale sky blue but this didn't show too well in the photo. The tree trunk was stamped onto Basic grey paper. I am pleased with how this turned out and as you can probably guess I love bright colours! Nikki x
