Tilda with a Bee

Tilda with a Bee

inside
I have had this "bee" in my head since I first ordered and received this Magnolia stamp.  Finally I had time to stamp the images.
1. Stamp Tilda on Copic paper.
2. Make mask of Tilda using masking tape wide roll used for water coloring.
3. Cover the stamped image of Tilda with mask.
4. Stamp Jar using a stamp positioner then remove mask.
5. Emboss edge of mat paper using embossing folder.
6. Color leaves and flowers using a stipple brush and ink.
7. Finish matting and embellishing.
8. Draw in squares using a ruler and color squares with B23.

After completing  the front of the card I went looking in my stamp collection for an appropriate inside verse. I sure was surprised when I found this stamp I had purchased years ago and it fit the image perfectly. Don't you think so?  Now to list all the "stuff" I used...

  4. What a cute card. Tilda with Bee was my first Tilda and she started an avalanche. The sentiment is adorable and the MS drippy goo border makes perfect honey.

    Is the sentiment and old Inkadinkado stamp? I've been searching and can't locate the sentiment stamp.

    Thanks.
