Circus Tilda

I made two cards recently. One with a stamp I have had a long time and hadn't used before and one with a stamp I just got. I have an addiction that is for sure. 

This first one is from the new autumn collection for Magnolia stamps. Well actually it is two stamps. Tilda is called Circus Tilda and the horse is carousel horse. Can't you just hear the music playing. Maybe Edwin is waiting and watching or maybe on the next horse over. They are both colored with copics. The trim on Tilda's dress, her headband and belt all have stickles applied. The horse has some stickles in his hair. The rings and stirrup have gold stickles on them. The trim, bridle and eye have diamond glaze. The rhinestones are from Queen and co. The flower is a gift with a purchase of over $60.00 over at Magnolia-licious here. The dp is from basic grey. I don't remember which one and as it is getting late I'm too lazy to go look. 

This stamp is from Stamps Happen by Janlynn here. If you love to color these stamps are for you. There is so much detail but they are beautiful. This is all colored with copics again. The swirls are from sizzix. There are touches of stickles around. I doodled around the edges. The scalloped paper is from dcwv. I added a little flower soft ultra fine to the pathway. 

Hope you enjoy the creations.

Each one is wonderful. The scenic one reminds me of the Cornish Heritage Farm stamps. The Magnolia on her carousel horse is fabulous!

Peggie, you've done a marvelous job on this card! Your coloring is so pretty and Tilda sitting on the Carousel Horse is delightful! Lucky you to have these stamps already! Your second card is also gorgeous. What pretty flowers and with the punched flourishes it's quite stunning!

Both of your cards are absolutely beautiful. I really love the coloring you did on the scenic stamp. I love to color but I find I don't have patience for all the fine details. I wish I could do as good a job as you did on that image. *smiles* & Hugz,

Love both of these cards! Your coloring is wonderful. I love those Stamps Happen stamps but I've been too intimidated to give them a try. You did a lovely job with it.
