Sweet Lucia Tilda.....


I hope you are all well and having a good week!

I have fallen in love with the new Magnolia Christmas images just released and just had to have this little sweet Lucia Tilda. 

I have stamped Tilda with versafine black onyx onto Waterford 300gsm HP watercolour paper. I have coloured her with distress ink pads. The stickle glue I have added is Star Dust. I also had to buy the Magnolia DooHickey swirl die. This I have distressed with walnut stain.

The snowflakes are a Cuttlebug die. I have used picket fence crackle paint on two and glimmer misted them with iridescent gold and distressed them with walnut stain. The third one I used some brushed pewter crackle pain and also distressed with walnut stain.

The bottom  layer of Magnolia paper I have stamped the Magnolia holly swirl onto this  I have then gone over the stamped swirl with sakura clear stardust pen and added dark red sakura stardust pen to the berries.

The edge of the paper I have distressed with walnut stain and then edged with silver krylon pen.

I thank you all so much for your visit and I wish you all a wonderful rest of the week and a great weekend!

Grenouille Greetings said...

This one is to die for!!! Absolutely gorgeous palette and I love how you have painted your snowflakes. I think I might have to invest in the cuttlebug die. I can't remember if ever thanked you for providing me with the details of the Magnolia club. I balked at the price in the end and I'll probably do in future what I do now which is to buy just one or two of the images after they come out. Thank you though! Warmest wishes, Lesley
