Summery Tilda

Our current challenge on Magnolia Stamp Lovers is to create a Summer inspired project. Well, it certainly feels like Summer here already, and I know I would love to be holding a delicious ice cream like this cute little Tilda is.

I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday for the layout of this card. The Tilda is from the Lazy Summer Days collection and I have placed her in front of an open gate where she is eating her yummy ice cream to stay cool. I used my new copic ABS 1 airbrush system to do the grass and the sky for this image. I am having so much fun with this thing. I also used it to turn the clear acrylic button under the ribbon yellow and the spellbinders shape with the sentiment stamped on it as well. It's really easy to airbrush with the spellbinders, if you leave the paper in the die when you airbrush it, you will automatically get a white border around the outside like I have done here. I added some crystal lacquer to the ice cream to make it look like a Popsicle.

Hello Mindy
Love, love, love this adorable card. I really like my airbrush system too and I am just beginning to experiment with it. Your coloring with the copics is excellent and I know it takes practice and a light hand! Beautiful!
