Purple and Black at Magnolia Stamp Lovers

Hi Friends,
Today starts our new challenge of Purple and Black at Magnolia Stamp Lovers. IMG_1412 (Small)
For my card I used this adorable Longing Tilda for my image. For my borders I used MS Looped Hearts punches. My sentiment is from SSD Stamps Lacey Squares.

I colored her with the following Copics and used the new Copic X-Press paper. This is some great paper!  I added some Ranger Stickles to the lace on her sleeve and her headband.
  • Skin – E13, E11, E00, E000, E0000, R22, R21, R20
  • Dress – B69, B66, B63
  • Hair – E35, E33, E51, E50
  • Outline – B60
  • Tabletop – N3, N2, N1

For my bow I punched a piece of 12 x 1 paper, scored it every 1/2” and pulled it into a circle. For the black portion I cut a piece of lace and threaded the bottom, pulled it together and tied if off. I will have a tutorial soon on how I did this.
For the inside of my card I used the MS Heart Looped punches again.

With the size of the bow I needed a larger envelope so I used my pattern from Priscilla Style’s for an envelope box.

For the front of the box I used the same MS punch, my square nestabilities and more stamps from the SSD Stamps Labels Square.  I used embossing powder for the images.
