My First Magnolia!

                                     **To view my candy please click here**

Hi everyone! Yesterday I spent the day crafting at Zoe from MIC's house and I coloured up my very first Maggie :) I used the absolutely adorable Tilda with Hawaii Flower...she has always been my favourite Tilda and I love that she can be used for any style or theme card!


While I was colouring her up I realised she was more detailed than what I had realised. It was actually a lot of fun to colour up her cute little outfit and her dress was perfect for practicing some folds! A day for new things...I also did my first ever heat embossing! I embossed the gorgeous Make It Crafty frame around Tilda white, and then flecked some gold paint over for a fun vintage effect. The sentiment I just printed off from the computer.

As always I used my copics to colour her up. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: E1, E25, E29
Dress: V000, V01, V04, V06, V09
Yellow: Y11, Y15, Y17, E31, E33



Well hope you like her! I must say I am kind of looking forward to colouring my next one... ;) xx
