Midway reminder at Marvelous Magnolia.

Good morning crafty friends.

Hope you are all well and having a lovely week.
 I am sharing with you today my midway inspiration card for Marvelous Magnolias.  The theme for this challenge is to add a hint of black.
I have been so looking forward to colouring up this adorable image- Here I am Tilda.
I chose this sentiment stamp from a challenge win and thought it was perfect for this image.
I have used Inktense Pencils to colour the image. I m still not entirely happy with the hair but this was the best of three. It actually looks a lot better in the flesh. I did not use water to blend the hair as on the first attempt it ended up a yucky mess - still need more practice with colouring hair.

The papers are from my stash. I bought a large pack of papers from K & Co years ago when I first started making cards so, rather than keep buying ink and papers I figured I should use some of them. 
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with white powder.

I added pearls, sparkly beads, lace (which you can't see very well) and flowers from WOC and LLC.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Use your stuff - Doily (doily die)
The Crafter's  Café - Things with Wings
Card Mania - Buttons
Thank you all for stopping by and for your lovely comments. I am sorry I haven't been around blogging as much as I would like but I need to catch up on my DT obligations and commissions before I go on holiday.

Enjoy the rest of your week.
