Lady Tilda

I wanted to use some of my new Magnolia stamps tonight before the new ones I ordered came in. That is my last order for a long time. I swear it is. lol
I decided to use Lady Tilda and the open gate. I wasn't going to get Lady Tilda but I saw so many wonderful cards using her I just had to have her.


Lady Tilda's dress is paper pieced using Alyssa Sweet Pea collection from basic grey. The blue background is from the Jack Sweet Pea collection. Both are now retired. I wanted to make the card more of a shabby chic look so I distressed the edges and kept the colors light. The blue rhinestones are from Queen & Co. I used up the last of my blue organza ribbon on this. I never know how I feel about using my supplies up.
I popped Tilda with foam tape for more dimension. 
Copics used:
face: E11, E00, E50
cheeks: R20
dress: Y00, E50
Slip: R20, R00
Flowers: R20, 00
leaves: G21, G2_
Tilda's flower: R83, R85
Leaves: G00, G02
Grass G21, YG03
flower centers:Y02, yellow souffle pen
fence: W5, W3, W1
Shadow: BG10
Hair: E57, E52, YR31
circlet: Gold Leaf pen and stickles
Stickles on flowers, dress trim
Here is a side view
 I made this card for the Magnolia Lovers dimensional challenge here.
and the just Magnolia challenge to use two or more stamps here.
Hope you enjoyed.

I've been really enjoying the soft pastel colors lately. Your card and Tilda are lovely. Like the paper that you used for piecing Tilda's gown stayed with the soft theme. Lovely!
