I've got my latest card to show you. Whenever I don't have a special occasion to make the card for, I usually like to make birthday cards, as those are always in demand...LOL.
The image I've used here is of Tilda With Apple from Magnolia's Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012. I've altered the image a bit. In the original image, Tilda has an apple with an arrow through it on her head. I've also done some masking and stamp a background image of Open Gate from the Hoppy Easter Collection 2010.
I've done the colouring using my Letraset Promarkers and Trias markers.
I've made this into an easel card as I haven't done one of those for quite a while now.
Views from different angles...
The image beside the sentiment is of the Mini Tilda With Heart from the You Are So Special - Mini Collection 2011. All the images I've used here are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store. She has an excellent selection of other Magnolia images also, both full-size and mini-size, as well as other crafting tools including those exquisite Memory Box and PoppyStamps dies.
