Hello from Tilda:)

This stamp from Magnolia is called Longing Tilda, and I envision many different ways to use her, for instance she could just be hanging out and saying 'Hello', or maybe she's waiting for her Prince Charming, or maybe she's concerned that you're feeling under the weather, etc. I just think she's adorable, and I hope you like her too.
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
Because I'm still a newbie to Maggies (Magnolia Stamps), I don't have any backgrounds yet, so I made due with what I had. I thought the shape of Nestabilities Labels 4, and the oval, looked like a window, and so that's what I used. It's difficult to see, but the white border is on foam squares, so that Tilda can lean on it...she's also on foam squares. I like to use lots of dimension with my cards. The patterned paper is a little washed out, (grrr to my new computer for that...still trying to get my old photo imaging program back), but it's very bold in real life, the pinks stand out from the black.
I paper pieced her shirt...I'm lacking a little in variety of Copic colours, but they've been ordered, yeah! And the photo editing available to me, grrr computer, makes her look a little washed out. but she's so cute, none-the-less.

Nicely done. I love how she seems to be leaning over the ribbon. Just a side note, you don't have to always use Magnolia stamp backgrounds. I just posted a card on my blog where I used a farm stamp from Stamping Up and put Tilda in front of it sitting on a fence. I have other stamps in mind as well to try. Let your imagination lead you.

Great job on this card. I love it.
