Tilda with Balloons!

I needed some birthday cards for friends so I got out my new stamp that I finally broke down and bought - a Tilda one :) She seemed just right with her balloons!

I just love these Magnolia images - they are adorable. I have tried to color them with my Copic's as I have seen others do but I get better results when I use my colored pencils. They are softer and look more blended. I need to keep practicing with the Copics.

Pretty simple and straight forward birthday card - not really an special techniques just turned out pretty cute :)

The supplies I used were:
Magnolia Stamps
Cognac Palette Ink
Prisma Watercolor Pencils
SU Blender pen
Oh Yeah T-2586
Versamark Onyx Black ink
Scrap Papers

If you are in the US and looking to buy any Magnolia stamps I searched on E-Bay for this one and got a decent price. You have to watch the conversion rates and the shipping as it is probably coming from the UK. There are several online stores also that sell them so shop around it might save you some pennies :)

This is also my entry for Cute Card Thursday's challenge :) Birthday Cards.
