Magnolia Christmas Card

Christmas card featuring Tilda under the Mistletoe.
I stamp using impress ink and a smooth white cardstock (such as SU Whisper White)
I colour my image using a combination of Promarkers and Prisma pencils. I use Blush for the skin, and Pastel Pink for the cheeks, I have coloured Tilda's hair and shoes using Tan and socks are Sandstone.
I use Prisma pencils to colour in Tilda's dress. I draw around the edges and then I use the Sansodor and blending (paper stumps) to blend the pencil.
I blend the shades together (there are some fab videos on YouTube to help you) and then I finished off colouring with using a red marker pen to colour in the berries on the Mistletoe.
I find it's easier to use papers that co-ordinate and I have chosen Basic Grey Wassail collection, and matched scraps of Bazzill cardstock.
I distress all the edges of the patterned papers and white cardstock with Tim Holtz distress ink and tool - Pumice Stone is my favourite colour.
I have used paper roses to embellish my card - I didn't have any green/red large roses, so I used ivory roses and inked the tips. I also use a 'pokey tool' to twist the stems.
The flowers are attached to the card using double-sided sticky tape.
I have finished off the card with some ribbon and a sentiment ticket
Here is Tilda close up
Thanks for looking and I hope you have enjoyed seeing how I make my cards.
Love and Hugs
