Tilda on Wisteria Lane

Stamps: Magnolia (Tilda with Tulips), Hero Arts sentiment. Cardstock: Stampin Up (Almost Amethyst, Elegant Eggplant), Basic Grey (Wisteris), Georgia Pacific (White), vellum. Ink: Tsukinkeo (Tuxedo Black), Stampin Up (Perfect Plum), Copics. Accessories: Spellbinders (Nestabilities Squares), K&Co. (adhesive pearls), Martha Stewart (butterfly punch), Stardust glitter pen, white gel pen.

Doesn't Tilda look happy resting with her tulips underneath the wisteria? The backdrop (mcuh more relaxing than the namesake) was a last minute substitution because I didn't want her on all white, but it's one of those happy accidents. It was super easy to use a DP from the Basic Grey 'Wisteria' and I couldn't have created a more appropriate background if I'd tried!

The sketch is based on the May Magnolia-licious sketch challenge. I also completed another challenge to give a wingless Tilda wings by using the Martha Stewart butterfly punch to create this delicate version from vellum and accenting them with the Stardust glitter pen. Every angel deserves a little sparkle, right?

Isn't Tilda's hair looking well-highlighted? If you haven't been by the Copic Creations blog lately, definitely check out their latest challenge on coloring hair. There are tutorials for all the hair colors and they are awesome! The only problem is that now I 'need' quite a few new Copic colors.

If you are also a Copic fan, you will want to stop by the KL Scrappin' N Stampin store. Kelly is taking pre-orders for Copics to be ordered on June 1st. The individual markers are on special for only $4.79, and there's a set of 12 for $40. Factor in free shipping through May 31st and you have an amazing bargain!

For a chance at free goodies including an Edwin stamp, there's still time to play in the KLSNS May challenge on PaperCraft Planet. Check out all the details HERE.

Happy Stamping!
