The story behind Tilda, Just Magnolia Challenge #2, and Copics Creations #2

Sharon Caudle shared some interesting information today. The question was raised, "What is the story behind Tilda, why does she have wings, and why does she have no mouth?" Sharon took the bull by the horns and asked Magnolia directly. Their response was that all the angels have wings, but some of them don't show them because they are hidden on their backs (so Tilda's are angels - how great is that!). As for the lack of a mouth, it is because angels speak with their heart, so there is no need for a mouth. I tell ya, now I just love them all the more!

So, the Just Magnolia challenge for this week is to use Pink and Green. This is the card I chose for this challenge. I am also submitting this for the Copics Creation Challenge #2 which is coloring jeans.

Stamps: Dragonfly Tilda
Ink: Momento, Copics
Paper: Cameo Corral, DCWV, Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Prima’s, Dew Drops, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Flower and Vine die cut, Stickles.

I used Stickles on the butterfly to match the glittery butterflies in the paper.

I must give credit where credit is due. I took the idea for the vellum wings from Claudia Rosa at Pretty Pressings. Thank you, Claudia, for sharing your awesome talent and amazing ideas. I cut out the wings and part of the sleeve, colored the sleeve and just outlined the wings, and glued the sleeve onto the picture.

These are the colors I used.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Oh, how adorable! You did a wonderful job on this card. Thanks, too, for the explanation on the Magnolias. They are fast becoming my favorite, and that's saying something because there are many designs that I'm crazy about. Thanks so much for joining our 2nd Copic Challenge. Hope you'll be back next month.
