Our Challenge for you at Midweek Magnolia this week is ‘Embossing Dry or Heat’ I’ve chosen one of the sweet Tildas from the new Sakura collection and created this pretty card:


My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E47, E44, E43, E42, E40 clothes: R85, R83, R81, R0000, W5, W3, W1, W00

I’ve added some gorgeous Shabby white Frantage here and there, it gives a really lovely effect
