Friends with Tilda by Magnolia

I've had this stamp for a long time and never inked her up. Thought it was just a little over due. I got her from Magnolia-licious, #265 sitting barefoot on fence. I love it when you put a sentiment on the upper right with her, cause I think it looks like she's reading it.
I colored her up with my Copic makers (I actually remembered to get a pic this time...it's below). And just used up some scrap papers of Bittersweet by Basic Grey.

Look at the buttons closely...you can click on the pic. These were some plain old yellow buttons, and I just took one of my Copic markers to them to color them brown. I LOVE how they turned out! They look marbelized and really cool. Whatcha think??


The Friends stamp is from SU that I've had for a couple years colored in with my Copic markers again. I threaded some twine from PTI through the buttons.


That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! HUGS!

Very smart idea on the buttons and the sentiment!!! I would never have thought of doing either but am going to try it one day. Love this card!! Funny how the obvious seem to sometimes elude us!! Hence why we surf fellow bloggers so thanks all bloggers!! Have a great weekend!

Sharon this is just so adorable, I'm seechless. How do you manage to pick always the perfect colors and they all balance each other. This is so cute, and I've tried your trick with the buttons, but they didn't turn our. Any way, this card is just stunning...

So cute! I have the "Friends" stamp but had not thought of mixing it with my Magnolias. I tend to get stuck in a rut when it comes to mixing stamps from different companies. Thanks for helping me get out of my box.

Hi Sharon! This is a cutie Tilda and I agree with placing a sentiment in the upper right corner like she's reading it. I, too, have this stamp and haven't inked it up yet ... or, I did but never colored her! I think I'd better get the dust off LOL! Very nice card! Hugs, Cami

Sharon, your killing me here! I keep trying to resist buying but I don't think I can hold out much longer.
The buttons have sold me on copics and of course I want ALL the Magnolia stamps.
I hope I get a big divorce settlement :).
