Sketchy with Magnolia Down Under

Happy weekend everyone!  It's time for another great challenge at Magnolia Down Under and this week it's a sketch.  Here's my Guest DT card using Tilda with Tulle Skirt.


Image stamped on Xpress It and coloured with Copics.  I got more adventurous with my Copic colour blending when my friend Zoe suggested some fun colour combos for the skirt.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out ~ waving to Zoe.  DPs were a combo of old scraps plus new Pink Paislee Heart Blooms.  Flowers are from WOC and the sentiment is from Stamping Bella.  Rhinestone butterfly purchased at Michaels.  The swirls are from a Marianne Creatables die and I also used my new Magnolia Doohickey Old Swedish Lace die

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Be sure to check out the DT's gorgeous creations for inspiration and get crafty.  We'd love to see your projects.

Oooooh and don't forget to enter my blog candy HERE.  Hope to see you tomorrow for my Sundays with Crissy project.

Hugs,
Maria
