Isn't theis Tilda with Birdcage cute? She, the other two stamps I used here, and 45 others were a Blog Candy I won from Magnolia Stamps. I'm still really thrilled and grateful, and it's so much fun to look through them all and choose a few to play with. Magnolia stamps are interesting to me because they are incredibly detailed, yet they are still easy to color. They are the perfect combination for a stamper like me because I love to color, but I'm not especially talented at it. I'm getting better, though, so for those of you who are trying to improve, like me, don't despair. I see improvement in my coloring now and then. What's more, I'm starting to become more aware of why things don't work. If I know what I've done wrong, or that something just doesn't look right, I can go about learning how to fix that problem. Earlier in the learning process, I would know that my coloring wasn't as good as Anna's, Chrissy's, or Ila's, but I wouldn't really know why. While I'll probably never be in my coloring heros' league, I can still be a pretty good colorer if I keep at it!
I bought this Prima ribbon in June of 2006. I got a foot of it, because that's how much came in the package. It was the most expensive ribbon I've ever bought. I bought it in purple, too. This is the first time I have ever used it. I had never even taken it out of the package before. It's very pretty, which is why I bought it, but honestly, how are you going to use ribbon with flowers stuck all over it? It's not like you can tie a bow or anything!
I colored her with my new Koh-I-Nor pencils, which I ADORE!!! My poor Prismas have been abandoned! After ten years with them, I have found somebody new-oh what a fickle girl I am!! I added some shimmer with my Niji paints, and some sparkle with a few dabs of my beloved Aqua Stickles. The paper here is Bashful Blue, Canson watercolor, and Prima Poetry Collection.
I made this for an SCS challenge.
