Beach Tilda

  Hope you are having a great Mother's Day. Mine is quiet - two of my dd's have to work, one is in NY and my son is giving me my present - mowing my large lawn while he is home this weekend.  
I just got some new Magnolia stamps so I had to ink this bathing beauty up. I haven't even finished using the last ones I got and I have more coming. I think I have an addiction because I am making a list of more to get.

 It certainly isn't warm enough to swim here but hopefully soon.  This is beach Tilda and she is colored with copics. Her hair bows are tied from floss - at least my cross stitch supplies are getting some use.  The paper is from the catelyn collection by the angel company.  The ribbon and brads in the center of the  flowers are from the see spot save section at Target. The rose is sprayed with cherry blossom walnut ink.  Stickles are on the flowers, the water and parts of the swimsuit. The little bits of yellow by Tilda's hands are supposed to look like sand. I don't know if it really does or not though. I made it by using polar white flower soft and mixing it with a couple of drops of butterscotch alcohol ink.  The dragonfly charm is one my dd had when she was doing hair wraps. That went by the wayside so I inherited her supply of charms.
Copics used:
 skin: E00, E02, E11
checks R20
swimsuit: RV02, RV23, RV21
Trim: BG01
Hair  YR31,E53, Y00
backgroundLBG01, B02, B00, BG10

Cute card, Peggie! What a sweetie Tilda is and you've colored her beautifully! All ready for summer and having fun in the sun! Hugs, Cami

Oh you have made a really darling card! Great to inherit all the charms :o) and yes I use my cross stitch floss on my cards now too.
I like the clear dew drops you have added - they remind me of water droplets. Nice arrangement of flowers with your charm. Tilda is a doll.
Hugs, Candy
