Today marks the start of a new Challenge at Magnolia-licious, an easy "Anything Goes" is the theme for challenge number #7.
This time I decided to colour my Wihoo Emoji Tilda with Copics, and place her as the centre piece in this fun card. This is a stamp I had won from Craft Heaven Challenge, and I'm glad I got to play with it :)
Even though mum's health situation is a very delicate one at the moment, I felt that creating this card, bit by bit, did have a calming effect on me. Unfortunately mum is still in hospital, and things seem to be very complicated. But I know God is there - giving her peace and serenity, even though she always hated hospitals. It is not easy to see her so frail and so dependent on us when I know how difficult this thing is for her. The truth is that she always manage to teach me a lot without any words - even in these situations, her faith is showing in her strength and her acceptance of all that this constant treatment entails.
Anyway... no more babbling from my side! Back to my card...
The colouring of this cutie was very easy peasy, and to go with her cute smiley face I decided on a green and pink colour combo. I think these colours bring out the happy feeling this stamp gives, and they are perfect to use for a lot of different occasions.
Unfortunately, I do not know the name of the papers I used, as they were among other loose paper in my stash, and could not remember from what company they are.
Let me remind you that you can find this particular stamp and various Magnolia and other stamp collections, embellishments and lots of new additions in Magnolia-licious Store.
For this card I also used some lovely dies from the Doo Hickey volume 10 kit. Look at those cute butterfly wings, dragonflies, and also the lovely hearts which I tagged behind the main image.
Other dies I used on this card are: Go Kreate, Impression Obsession Die, Dienamics
Other embellishments I added were: cheesecloth, self-adhesive pearls, ribbon, lace, and some gesso here and there for that soft feel.
Some flowers were a must for pretty Tilda!
I hope you let me know what is your opinion about the card, but also that you pop over on the challenge blog and see for yourself the cute projects that the DT prepared for you. Please do come and join the fun, and inspire us with your talents! And do not forget that Shawn is offering one Random Winner a $20 Gift Certificate to be spent in the Store!!
Last but not least, I humbly ask you to keep supporting with prayers for mum, so that she will not be in a lot of pain during this rough time. Thank you to each one of those who leave me private messages on Fb, send emails etc. A big hug also to the sweet people who are sending me lovely crafting RAKs as a sign of love and support - the smile you manage to bring on my face is a ray of hope! You are AMAZING people!! :) God bless each of you!!!
