My First Tilda!

Hello there, and welcome here on a Sunday! I just couldn't wait to post my first ever Tilda stamp. These cutie stamps are made by Magnolia, and I've been eyeing them for a while. I've been improving my Copic skills and finally decided that I could do these cute stamps some justice.
.
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

.
Here's a close-up of Valentine Tilda. I was having a hard time with blending, partly due to the cardstock I'm using, and partly my skills. Then I saw THIS awesome card by Zoe from her Make It Crafty blog, and knew I had to learn how she did pleats. So my next image is almost done, and thanks to Zoe, {mwah} Thank-you Zoe!!!!!, my pleats have really improved, and so has my blending. I paper pieced her pink shirt because I didn't have the Copic colour I wanted.
Recipe: CTMH PP-Bella, CTMH CS-Amethyst, Pansy Purple, Olive & Colonial White, CTMH Ink- Bamboo & Black, CTMH SS-Katrina Relief, Magnolia-Valentine Tilda, Nestabilities-Labels 4, Impressabilities-Flourish, Cuttlebug Die-Vintage, Pearls, Prima Flowers, Foam Squares.
.
Copics Used:
Hair-E31, 33, 35 & 37
Skin-E00, YR0000, YR00, R02
Dress-BV02, 04 & 08
Socks-CTMH Bamboo Ink & Blending Pen
.
I've been lurking over at Copic Creations Challenge Blog, and I finally have a card to submit for one of their challenges....Challenge 42, What's New. I used my new Magnolia stamp!
.
Thanks for stopping by,
Deneen
