Magnolia Down Under Challenge #69

I have been thinking about my design all day and finally started tonight. It came together quite quickly as I already knew what I was going to do and exactly what papers I wanted to use. Is it a bit scary that I know exactly what is in my stash? Anyway here we go. This weeks theme at Magnolia Down Under is a Travel theme. I used my new Magnolia stamp Letter Tilda, I loved her when I saw her and had this type of card in mind. I have once again made an easel card (only my second) and here she is
I used my Copics to colour her in in the following combinations
Hair- E53, E57
Ribbons-C1, B39
Skin-E000, E41
Letters and Stamp- E53, E41, E43, B21, B23
Socks- C1
For her dress I tried something different and used Tim Holtz distress ink and my Tombow blender using 'Stormy Sky'. I also used a Tombow for the letter seal 847.
For the papers I printed off some free digi stamps called 'Vintage French Stamp Collection' from Just Something I and printed out onto some paper I bought about 10 years ago. It wasn't even labelled so I have no idea of the maker. I also used a blue and beige cardstock from the stash. Last but not least I used Kaszazz rub ons called World Traveller. Now to unveil the inside.
I left the inside tag blank so I can then personalise it so it may say enjoy your journey to...........
Thanks for checking out my blog please leave a comment. I have been super excited to see how many people have been visiting my page considering I have only been blogging for a little while.

Jolly Roger Tilda Card

OMG I am sooo excited about this card. It turned out exactly the way I wanted. I can't wait to share. This Tilda is one of my new stamps I ordered from Magnolia-licious they were fantastic to order through and I loved my free gift. Anyway back to the card. I am entering this card into two challenges the first is the Just Magnolia challenge which was to create a card on the theme 2x2 and the Magnolia Down Under Challenge which was to use a tag. Well here she is....................
I coloured her using my Copics in the following combinations,
Skin-E000, E00, E41
Boots-E37, E57
Skirt- B21, B23
Top-B39, W1, W3
Bandanna-W3, W5
hair-E25, E53
Flag-C1, W1    Stick, E43
I then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Walnut Stain around the image. Tilda has then been mounted onto burgundy bazzill as you can see there are two burgundy mats.  I then used Rusty Pickle paper-Cap'n Jack Black Pearl and used both (2) sides. Now for the inside of the card.
The inside of the card contains two embellishments and the tag which has two pieces of ribbon pulls out of the bottle to reveal the two sided message on one side, "Happy Birthday", on the other, "from the crew".
Have a great weekend everyone I am doing this post ahead of my normal deadline as my husband and I are off to Powderfinger tomorrow night. I can't wait just hope we don't get too wet outside!
