Magnolia 'Tilda with Pony Tail'

Hello everyone,
I had a lovely day out with my friend yesterday; we went to the ‘Making It’ Craft show at Farnborough. I bought a couple of bits and pieces, but spent most of my money on some new copics as I have decided I need to expand my range of colours, although I am still a long way off from having the complete set.
 Today I am sharing a square magnolia card. I thought I would do some masking and used three stamps. To give it a slightly different look I used Kraft card for the embellishments.


 Copics I used are:
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E43, E42, E41, E40
Top: R83, R81, RV000

Bench: E37, E35, E33, E31
Grass: YG99, YG95, YG91

 Pencils: Tuscan Red, Burnt Ochre, Dark Umber, Black

 Stamps: Tilda with Pony Tail, Magnolia Tree and Bench
Dies: Marianne, Magnolia DooHickey, Cheery Lynn.
Flowers, Ribbon and Lace from my crafty stash.
 Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
 Hugs
