My First Magnolia Card


I recently order a couple of Tilda stamps by Magnolia as I had seen so many pretty cards made with her. This is my first try at coloring her and also trying the Promarkers. Needless to say, I do need a lot of practice with coloring, but I think she turned out o.k. except for a couple of booboos. One is covered up by the paperpieced shopping bag.   The flower is made from EKSuccess large & med. retro flower punch. The large flower is punched with a MS punch to give it a different look.  I saw this idea on some other blogs I have visited and I really like the way it turns out.  All pieces were sponged with SU Soft Suede ink.
Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU Naturals White, Crumb Cake, and Riding Hood Red.
DSP:  October Afternoon (Thrift Shop);   Ink: Memento Black (for image) and SU Soft Suede;  Accessories:  MS Fern and EK Success Retro Flower punches; SU brad; SU Riding Hood Red ribbon;
Nestabilities.  Assorted Promarkers.
