Tilda with Hawaii flower



I hope you are all having a great day, I feel on a roll lately. I finally have more time in my scrap room.

For my card I used the sketch over at Magnolia-licious highlites Challenge blog. My DP is Pinkpaisley butterfly garden collection and I also used Kraft cardstock. My image is colored with my copic markers, I struggled a bit with her hair, could not get the look I wanted for the curls.

I did not have the correct colors in my stock for the roses, so I applied Mountain Rose Alcohol inks to my white roses using my Alcohol ink fillable pen (which is actually filled with Alcohol blending solution). I put a few drops of Mountain Rose on my acrylic block, waited for the ink to dry and then just picked it up with my fillable pen. The alcohol ink solution reactivates the ink. We used this techniques in a course I had with Tim Holtz last year in Montreal on something else and it gave me the idea to try it on a flower.

The other trick I learned from a course with Jennifer McGuire was to glue black thread to the back of the butterflies to make the antennas. I though that was kind of cool since there are so many nice butterflies on designer papers to cut out.
