Magnolia-licious Challenge Orange and Green

Well I have made another one and this time it is for the Magnolia-licious Challenge and is inspired by the colours Orange and Green.

These colours remind me of my friend Alethea who was crazy about this colour combo in the early 90's, she even had a jumper knitted in orange and green stripes. Anyway here is my take on the colour scheme and Leath this ones for you.

I used Chinese Tilda and used my Copics in the following colours,
Skin-E00, E20, E50
Hair- 100, C1, C7
Socks- C1, W1
Umbrella- E37, YR00, YR04, YR07
Dress-E11, YR00, YR04
Coat- G00, G07, YG11, YG41
I used the Stampin' Up papers called 'Haiku' for the different layers. Behind the orange is a Kaiser stamp and I used a Fiskars Punch along the edge. Behind Tilda I used a Stampin Up stamp from the 'Eastern Blooms' Set I love the way it compliments the cherry blossoms on her dress. Then I finished it off with Platnium Stickles. Here is a close up of the colouring.
