Magnolia-Happy Holiday

Today my mother and I each created two cards.  We had such a great time together and made our card making into a little competition.  The person who chose the most creative card was my father, so of course my mother was the winner of today's challenge. :) My first card contains Tilda with Christmas Coat from Magnolia's Merry Little Christmas collections (2010).  I colored her using copics and stickels were used on the snowflakes (EK and Martha Stewart punches) and parts of the card stock. Behind Tilda is an embossed white card stock that I used the copic air brush system to get a little blue color to the background. This was the first time I used the air brush and I loved the way it turned out. Enjoy!

What I used to color Tilda
skin: YR0000, E000, E21
hair: E33, E35, E37
coat: R81, R83, R85, G20, G21, pearl smooch
boots and lace: B41, B20
package: E41, G20, pearl smooch

  1. Wow. You are blogging like a pro. I must take lessons from you!! Great job with your card.

  2. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 500 so far !

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
