Tiny Bubbles....

I have had some time in my craft space today, and have made a card just for fun, and not for a DT card, but just for me. It has been a while since I have had time to do that, and I was so happy to just sit down and create for fun. Here is what I came up with....
I used one of my new Tilda stamps, Bubbling Tilda. I just got her with my last Simon Says Design team treat spend, and I just LOVE her, I am totally obsessed. I know she is not new, but she is new to my collection, and I LOVE her, such a dream to color up. Anyway, I paired her with some of my K&Company Julienne papers, as I wanted to keep this card monochrome, and those are the best blue papers I own, they are just gorgeous. I created an easel card to give it some interest, and they are so much fun (and easy) to create.
I followed the sketch at Saturday sketch for the front panel of this card. I love the way it came out. There are so many layers, makes it very interesting to the eye. Love it!
I colored up this beauty with copics and Prismacolor pencils.
Skin - E21, E00, E000, R20, R30
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Dress - B91, B95, B97, W5, Indigo Blue pencil
Wings and Bubbles - B01, B00, B0000, Light Cerulean Blue pencil, Stardust Stickles
The sentiment is also a Magnolia stamp that is a fave in my house!
I added lots of embellies to the card to pretty it up. I added some Doohickey die cuts. I used Tilda Lace for one of the borders, Doily flowers to the flower bases, and the swirl. I also added some Wild Orchid Crafts light blue roses to the centers of the die cut flowers. The stick pin is also hand-made from a crafting buddy of mine,and it matched absolutely perfectly! The butterfly was punched using my Martha Stewart Monarch punch, and I added some half back pearls as the final finishing touch.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
TOMIC - Monochrome
Magnolia Down Under - Inspired by a song (Tiny Bubbles)
Bunny Zoe's - Easel cards
Magnolia-licious - Monochrome
