Princes Tilda with Curl + NEW Video Tutorial!

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Hi everyone! I am back with a card for the brand new challenge over at Magnolia Down Under! This week the theme is Buttons. I had some fun with my card today! I must say I am quite happy with how it has turned out ;) For my card today I have used one of the new Magnolia's; Princess Tilda with Curl. 

The little wooden hearts on the flaps are Prima buttons that I have turned around to just have the plain wood finish showing. Awhile ago my Nana gave me a tin with a bunch of zips in - so I thought I would start putting them to good use! ;) Here are the copic colours that I have used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Outfit: Purple V000, V01, V04, V06, V09 Yellow Y35, Y38, E15, E18

The lovely Candy has requested a video tutorial on colouring Magnolia Stamps, so today I have finally got around to doing one! I have done a start to finish colouring, focusing on her pleats in particular.

Hope you like it...if you have any suggestions or feedback please just let me know :) And if you are a new follower, don't forget to pop your blog link in your comments so I can hop over to your blog too! :) Thanks so much for stopping by xx

  13. Miss Alyce,

    I enjoyed your tutorial soooo much.
    What a beautiful princess you coloured.

    Your instructions are very clear and easy to understand.
    One thing I am wondering about - do you use your Copics
    very softly - otherwise I don't know how you get in the tiny places
    without going out of the lines?

    I have just seen her introduced on your Blog.
    The card that you used her on is AWESOME!!!
    I love the zippers you have incorporated the last
    few cards :o) As well as the Fran-tage of course!
