From the Heart

It's Flutterby Wednesday time! Butterflies always make me happy and so do Wednesdays, it tells me that I made it halfway through the week! This week our challenge is to create a card using a sketch and telling us where it came from. I did my card based upon a sketch from the
Just Magnolia Challenge. My sweet friend Rach has created this sketch.
This was a fun and easy sketch to use for the challenge. I love the brand new Wisteria papers from Basic Grey and just had to use it. Somehow this paper just reminds me of a wedding, I think because it's soft and sweet looking. I got to finally use this Tilda! Actually I have tons of Magnolia stamps that have been waiting to be used from last year. I got a supply of stuff that need to be used. Are any of you like that? I will get to them eventually, I'm in no rush.
When creating this card, I ended up coloring the image first and then choosing my papers. This is not my usual card making process. I will choose the stamp, paper and then color so that everything matches well. I got pretty lucky this time! After coloring I used my copic airbrush system for a little light behind Tilda and added some flowersoft to her basket of flowers. One thing I did to achieve that color of flowersoft was mix a little bit of green, blue and ivory. Then I used my copic pen and slightly colored the ivory for a little darker purple. I also ran 2 different ribbons around my card and the last thing added was the sentiment.
I hope you like this card and will give the Flutterby and Just Magnolia challenges a try. You still have a little time left. To check out what the rest of the Flutterby team has created, just click on their names below.
