Butterfly Tilda!

I belong to the Yahoo Group Magnolia-licious, and every month we do a mingle. The theme for July is butterflies. This is my card for my mingle partner. I did up two variations, just changing the flowers. I used Tilda as Butterfly, which you can find in Diana's store here.

I did do something different though. I did use my Copics, however, I used chalks for the shading. I really like the look. The punches were all Martha Stewart, the flowers were from Prima and Wild Orchid. The DP is from Memory Box Gossamer collection. I added stickles to the wings, and glossy accents to her shoes.

Copics used were:

Skin - E000, E00, E21
Dress - V0000
Wing Outline - G00
Hair - Y23
Shadows and shoe soles - C1, c5

Please let me know what you think, and thanks for stopping by!

Oooh, absolutely gorgeous, Deb -- both of them. Love the flowers (both styles) and the pearls add that touch of elegance. I bought that MS cutout butterfly punch twice, but neither would work for me, so I returned it both times and gave up. Beautiful coloring on both cards -- I can't choose a favorite - love them both!

Your cards are very pretty ! I like the one with the darker flowers the best makes the card pop IMHO :)

I like the second card best. Beautiful coloring,I am slowly beginning to get used to Tildas, especially the ones with the kitties.
Hope to get up your way soon.
