Magnolia Down Under Challenge #38

HELLO! It's me once again. This is my second post for today so just please scroll down to read the earlier post.

This card is for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge#38 and it's a sketch challenge for this week.

Here's my card:

Honestly, I haven't been creating cards with Tilda on it for the past few months. Which only means that I haven't been using my Copics and Prismacolour pencils for awhile now! So just imagine how hard it was for me to colour her, knowing that I wasn't sure at first if I still know how to use or hold a marker, moreso, a COPIC!!! LOL!!! My hand was trembling, actually. I felt the same feeling when I was just starting with Copics. :)

Anyway, I somehow "survived"! I just hope I was able to justify my colouring with Tilda. I coloured her mostly with Copics but with her hair, it was a combo of Copics then Prismacolor pencil (to achieve shading).

Can you please tell me from what Magnolia collection this Tilda was from? This is just actually a RAK image from an online buddy (sorry, I forgot her name! my bad!). The farm fence that Tilda is sitting on was from High Hopes which I bought from Bec some weeks ago. I did some tweaking on this fence to adjust the height. LOL! I experimented on matting the Labels One with my Scalloped Square Nesties (the largest die) and I liked how it turned out. I did some paper piercing on the sides and a faux stitching with a faux thread using a glitter gel pen. :) Flowers were made using Martha Stewart Cosmos punch and embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots to add effect and was popped-dot for dimension.Sentiment is from AmyR stamps by CC Designs and the tiny bow on top of it is a Carl punch. The lovely dps are from K&Company Charlotte pad (my favourite!). The cardstocks are from SU! Summer Sun and Coredinations cs.

A closer look at the flowers...

Thanks so much and it's time for me to hit the bed now. God bless everyone!
