Midweek Magnolias #43

Happy hump day, friends and followers! 
I hope you are settling into the new year. Over at the Midweek Magnolias we have lots of wonderful challenges for you this year, and our very first one in 2013 is:

Tilda on a tag!

You may enter any kind of creation you like, as long as you place a Tilda or an Edwin on a tag!

I've been practicing coloring with brighter and richer colors than I usually use, and darker shadows à la Mindy Baxter, and I had lots of fun taking her new Shades of Grey class at the CMC- classroom. I made this card with Tilda on a tag and placed it on a birthday card: 

I used an some older Basic Gray dp the red one, and the gorgeous Pion Design papers. Tim Holtz die, Martha Steward punch, some lovely flowers and beautiful charms I got from my Secret Santa this year♥ Thanks hun! I used Stempelglede swirl stamps and Kort og Godt postmark stamps, and some WOC roses.  The berries are from Magnolia and the Seam binding is from the Live & Love Craft store.


Here is a closeup of the image and coloring. Copics used:
skin: E13-11-00-000,W3-1, R32-30 (cheeks), Reds: R89-39-37-35-32-30, Hair: E47-44-43-42-41-40, W7, Shoes and shadows: W7-5-3-1-00,  C00



 I added a touch of crackle paint to the red flowers to soften the bright color a bit. The lovely pins are from Maya Road and Tim Holtz. The sentiment stamp is from Norsk Stempelblad AS.


Here's a look at the inside of the card too. I used my punch on the Pion Design dp, and added some swirl stamp print to the edges of the cardstock in the middle.

Please stop by the Midweek Magnolias to see the gorgeous creations of the rest of the DT this week, and join in for a chance to win a surprise present from Magnolia in Sweden!

***
I will enter my card into these three challenges:
The Inky Chicks: #1-Anything Goes!
Lovely hÄnglar & Sweet Magnolia: #60 Something new (I used my new flowers and charms)
Magnolia Down Under Challenges: #176 Anything goes
