My Mellow Maggie!!

Fellow Maggie enthusiast and cardmaker extroidanaire, Cabio, selected this photo for inspiration on the Magnolia-Licious Challenge blog.

There is something very soothing about this buttery palette and I just had to give it a try. Also new to me on this card is black hair. My Copic collection is meager in the yellow dept. but it it worked somehow. Mellow tones of yellow are rare ones for me but I think it turned out okay and I'll definitely try them again.

I followed the ingredients on the Magnolia-Licious HiLites blog as well where the recipe is 4 flowers, 3 DP, 1 ribbon, and 2 Magnolia images. My second image is the Tilda sunflower stamp.

Rosalie so kindly wrote and asked me for the Copic colors I used. I will try to post them more often in the future! Here goes:
Flesh - E0000, E00, E33, E50, R00, R11, R20,
Dress - Y00, YR21, E000, E50, C1, E99, E25 (see only 2 yellows used)
Socks - E50, E000, Y00, YR21
Shoes - E50, E33, E25, E99
Hair - C1, C3, C5, N7
I used my colorless blender on the hair, shoes/socks, & dress ruffles. Since I am still building my Copic collection I have to improvise but it seemed to work on this!

UAU I love it!
Seu cartão esta lindíssimo. Seu colorido é barbaro.
Como agora tenho algumas copics e comecei a pintar com elas, gostaria que você dissesse quais foram as cores de copics utilizadas nesta Tildinha.
Obrigada e mais uma vez parabéns
