Happy Holidays from Tilda!

Hello my crafty friends! Thank you for spending some time with me today. I just received my Bo Bunny Winter Joy DPs and I love the colors and design! Non-traditional colors, but so fun to work with.  I wanted to keep my card simple so most of the design and colors wouldn't be covered up!
I decided to dust off some older Magnolia stamps since I really ink them only twice or so and that's such a waste to me!  So here I've inked up Tilda With Yule Hat from the 2008 Christmas collection.  My card base is a whopping 6" square because I wanted to use a page from Bo Bunny's "Noteworthy" journal pages and I didn't want to cut it down or take away from the shape.  Tilda is colored with Copics and I added some Fun Flock to her cap and stockings to give it a nice warm and fuzzy look. I also added some Prisma Glitter to her inner dress for some sparkle, and also Stardust Stickles to the punched out Christmas trees.  That's it! Simple!
Recipe
Stamp:  Magnolia - Tilda with Yule Hat
CS:  Bazzill (white)
DP:  Bo Bunny Winter Joy
Punch:  EK Success
Copics used:
Dress:  V15, V17, BG000, BG01
Hat:  YG25, YG03, YG000
Hair:  E15, E13
Stockings and Hat: V000l V01 (then flocked)
The rest are from my stash.
Something new to me:  The white dots on Tilda's cheeks were made with a Sharpie Ultra Fine white water-based pen that I received from Tammi! I love this pen! So smooth and makes perfect small dots...better than gel pens!  Thank you Tammi!

Absolutely gorgeous card Cami and such beautiful colouring on your sweet Tilda, I love her she's a real cutie and I agree, it's nice to use them more than a couple of times. Those papers are so pretty, no wonder you wanted them to show all their beautiful, the colours are so pretty. Thank you very much for the sweet comment you left earlier, I can't tell you how much it meant to me. Hugs, Chris :)
