Our challenge for you at Midweek Magnolias this time is Lots of Layers. With the Winter Wonderland collection on the way, and Christmas just around the corner, I thought I would take the opportunity to make a card with the very sweet London Tilda before I get engrossed in Christmas cards. I really love this Tilda she’s such a cutie. I’ve added lots of lovely die cuts and some gorgeous beaded lace to create this pretty easel card:

Tilda is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20 hair: E57, E55, E53, E51 clothes and umbrella: W5, W3, W1, W00, R00, R0000 shadows: C3, C1, C0, C00, B60

The base of the easel looks like this:


Did you notice the sweet little bark heart I’ve covered with Frantage, I’ve embossed the butterfly too, I love Frantage embossing powders. This time I’ve used the Shabby Pink, but it comes in lots of colours and it’s such fun to use with wonderful effects. The gorgeous die cuts are from Marianne Designs and really give an elegant result
