Wild Orchid, Just Magnolia & TOMIC Challenges

Hi everyone!! Well I've been playing catch up with my DT work since my copics finally arrived but I also got to finish off a couple of images that I had previously started and turned them into cards just for challenges.

First up is one I made for both Just Magnolia - Anything Goes  and Wild Orchid Challenges, which is a sketch by Bev.

After a recent stash sort out I came across my Magnolia papers, I have so many papers that they got buried, lol. I machine stitched them all and distressed the punched border with Tim Holtz Brushed Cordoroy. 

The image is from hAnglar & stAnglar and I've coloured her with copics : Skin- E00, 01, 11, R20. Coat/Shoes/Hat - R35, 37, 39. Dress - E50, 51, 53. Key - C3, 5, 8. Hair - E31, 33, 35.

The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The pearls and adage ticket are from my stash. 

Next is a card I made for The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge {TOMIC}. This is their first challenge and the theme is to make a Birtday card. 

I have also used Magnolia papers on this card. Teal is my favourite colour so I have been sparing these for all I'm worth, lol. They have been machine stitched onto darker teal card and I've added a large white doily behind my Tilda. 

Copics used: Skin - E00. 01. 11. 21. R20. Dress/Hair Bow - BG70, 72, 75. Shoes - E42, 43, 44. Hair - E71, 74, 77. Birdcage - E50, 51, 53. Bird - Y02, 06

The flowers are lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the fabulous teal trim is from An Siopa Bui. I've stamped Happy Birthday onto a tiny white tag that I inked with distress ink. I also inked the flowers. The pearls are from my stash.
