Waterlily Tilda

So as you may have noticed my blog has been pretty quiet lately.  I have been away but am also just taking a break from my regular DT duties (except CLP).  I need to rejuvenate the creative flow as I just found everything to be more of a deadline and obligation then fun.  It always comes back tho.  :)  Good thing because I have a room full of product.  LOL!   Sorry I haven't been around to visit you but I'll be back to that as well. 

I will occasionally post from time to time but it will be cards that I do just for fun.  YAY!  I'm trying to learn how to distress ink color and so far it's been a challenge but learning Copics didn't come easy either so practice, practice, practice.  This was my first decent image that I could actually use after about 10.  I just love the softness of distress inks.  So pretty when it's done right.  LOL!  I just need to figure out how to add some more shading but that will come.

This is a new image called "Waterlily Tilda" from the Summer Memories Magnolia collection.  I think she's one of my favorites!  I added some Stickles to the water, wings of the tiny butterflies and a smidgen on the ribbon in her hair. 

I'm going to enter her in the following challenges:

Card Makin' Mamas - May Flowers
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Hip to be Square - square card
Tilda's Town - A new challenge blog - Anything Goes**

Well off to make some blueberry muffins and go for a walk!  Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!  Hugs!
