Welcome blog hoppers! I purchased several Magnolia stamps a couple of years ago (time flies) colored them up with Copic Markers and never have used them.  I like this group because it motivates me to pull out some of those oldies but goodies and make them into cards.  It's like putting life back into something that has been sitting in storage and waiting for a very long time.

This stamp is "Bubbling Tilda". She was colored with Copic Markers. After cutting her out I distressed the edge of the white paper with TH Distress Ink Victorian Velvet to soften the cut edge.  Then I put her on a piece of Once Upon a Time scrapbook paper. (Tilda is actually covering up a horse that was on the scrapbook paper.)  I thought that the bubbles on the paper could look like she was blowing them. Flowers were added over her head (from a scrapbook paper scrap) and Glossy Accents to the flower petals.  This way it looks like she is blowing dewdrops on the flowers. It was matted on a Bazzil light blue cardstock and another piece of scrapbook paper to pull out the blue violet and the deep purple color.

  8. Very pretty. I love the scene you created with the bubbles being the dew drops on the flowers. Very creative. Thanks for playing this month. I look forward to seeing what you create for next month.

    1. Glad you liked it....My husband laughs at me because every once in awhile I make something that makes me squeal because it just seems to go together or work well when it wasn't planned. This card was one of those. Only problem I had was that now the card is missing....lost. I was fortunate that I had already scanned it so it was on my computer. I am sure it will surface sometime. Maybe her wings took her away.....
