Turquoise and Brown Challenge at Magnolia Stamp Lovers

Our challenge at Magnolia Stamp Lovers is to use the colors Turquoise and Brown. I chose to use Cowboy Tilda for my image. Isn’t she adorable?


I also used the sketch from Midnight Madness, it is perfect for a western theme. I used some brads that have been collecting dust for some time and then threaded through some twine. I added a horseshoe charm to the top.

For the grass that Tilda is standing on I used Ultra Fine Flower Soft in Sage, Sand and Toffee. This stuff is so cool! I like it much better than the larger flower soft, it is easier to work with and it doesn’t glob in bunches, it just sprinkles on. I think this is going to be my new choice for whatever my stamp is standing or sitting on. It gives it some dimension I think. Here is a close up.

I used the same twine to make Tilda’s lasso that she is holding and I colored here with the following Copics.

  • Skin – E13, E11, E00, E000, E0000, R22, R21, R20
  • Shirt – BG05, BG02, BG000
  • Hair, hat, skirt and boots – E47, E44, E40

And here is the inside of the card.
