A Tilda Easel Card

This is a gorgeous new Tilda I just added to my collection this past weekend!  I've always loved her and Heather had some new Magnolias in stock so this one happened to land in my basket, LOL!  My best friend's daughter turns 16 this week and purple is her favourite colour so I decided to ink up this little cutie as she is quite the writer and has already written her first novel!  I figured this was the perfect Tilda for her!
I coloured with my copics and made Tilda a blonde!  I'm really pleased with how my blending turned out on this image - it looks even nicer in real life!!  I used a decorative paper piercing template on the purple panel behind Tilda to add some subtle detail with little pearls in the corners to finish off the look.

I used my small and medium retro flower punches to create the flowers and added a little pearl to each centre.  The bow is made with the bow-easy.  Paper and sentiments are from stash.  I used Labels 10 on the sentiment below.

I will add this card into the Cute Card Thursday challenge this week which calls for 'dimension'.  The sketch is this weeks 'Just Magnolia' challenge.  Edit:  I found another Magnolia challenge blog 'Magnolia Stamp Lovers' and this weeks challenge is 'The Colour Purple' - how perfect!!!
Thanks for your visit today - I always love to see you here!  I hope you have a minute to leave a much appreciated comment!  Enjoy your day!
