A Merry Little Christmas - Guest Designer for Simply Magnolia


I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am so excited that I was chosen to be guest designer for this challenge at Simply Magnolia. I colored my image with Copic Markers - skin E000, E00, R20; hair E25, E31, E50; dress, socks and ribbon R37, R39; holly leaves YG93, YG95, YG97. I added the polka dot with a very fine sharpie paint marker. For the berries I used a red smooch.

Below are some closer view of this sweet Tilda.

Here are the goodies I used:
Magnolia Stamps: Holly Tilda (Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection), Sentiment
Copic Markers
Cryogen, Magnolia, Martha Stewart and Memory Box Paper
Cheese Cloth
Ribbon, Trim, Bling
Frantage, Smooch, Fine Glitter
Cherry Lynn Die - Fence
Magnolia Doohickey Dies - Paris Night, So Wrapped Tilda Lace TagTag
Memory Box- Holly Vine and Snow Border
