Princess Tilda

Happy Bank Holiday Monday to you, shame about the awful weather we're having here today though.

For todays card I've used the adorable Magnolia Princess Tilda, I've coloured her with Copics then added a sprinkling of Glamour Dust.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-

Addicted to Stamps - Bingo (cute image, flowers, charm)
Paper Play - Blossoms and Blooms
Paper Sundaes - Vintage/Shabby Chic
House of Gilli - Flowers

I've been playing around with different photo editing suites.  The above photo is using Picnik which is free and so incredibly easy to use.  The photo below is my usual way which is with Paint Shop Pro, which I only use to crop and add my watermark.  I think from now on I shall use Picnik as the colours seem to be more true to life.

Princes Tilda coloured with Copics
Papers - My Minds Eye - "Totally Girl" paper pad
Lace and cream rose from Wild Orchid Crafts
Melissa Frances rub-on sentiment.
Princess Charm
Glamour Dust
Glimmer Mist

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis, enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday
Happy Crafting
luv 'n' hugs

Such a beautiful card! I agree about Picnik! It's so easy to use and it DOES seem to give better color hues! Love the flowers!
