Magnolia-licious Rainbow Colour Challenge

Happy Tuesday Everyone! It's time for our Magnolia-licious Colour Challenge so pick 3 colours of the rainbow and have some fun creating with us. 

My project features a special stamp from Sweden called Stamping Tilda available for pre-order at the Magnolia-licious online store.  Do you see yourself in Tilda ~ lol! I kept the card very very simple with little embellishments except for the pearls in the corners of the card and the ribbon.  Tilda is coloured with Copics and her background sponged with chalk ink.  I did something a bit different with the background too as I was trying for something vintage/rustic looking.  So I inked the lid of my mini tear drop Memento ink pad and stamped around the image and oval border.  No special rhyme or reason other than making sure to not stamp over the image.  As I said, something different but I like the effect.  I also used my personalized stamp at the bottom of the oval frame.

Well that's it for me today. It's March/Spring Break here in SW Ontario and I'm taking a break with hubby and my girls. For those also on Break, hope you're having a fabulous time!

BTW, I wanted to try colouring Tilda's face a little differently this time and took a look at Kylie's fabulous tutorial here.  I'm so disappointed with my colouring! This is an example of how using the right paper with Copics is so important!  I didn't realize until I started colouring and was already on holidays away from my crafting supplies, that I had grabbed the wrong cardstock.  It's not my trusty MIC blending cardstock!!! Whatever I grabbed made my Copics streak badly and unable to blend ~ ugh!  When I get home, I will have to colour this image again but on MIC blending cardstock.

Hope you get a chance to play along and take a peek at my teamies' beautiful creations for inspiration.  You might be the lucky winner of a $25 gift certificate to Diana's store.

Thanks for your visit and for any comment you leave.

Your card is so pretty! I can't see any problem with your colouring in the photo. I like the distressing techniques.

Enjoy your break! Hope you have good weather :)
