Willow's Nursery staff thank you cards

Well this is a first for me, I'm not usually a fan of Magnolia stamps - and yeh I know I'm in the minority here. But I've been looking for a school/teacher related stamp for ages and couldn't really find anything that appealed to me - except of course Lindsay's freebie card kit which I used for Scott's teacher's cards.

So when I was down at the Artstamps show in Edinburgh at the beginning of the month I spotted the Study Tilda stamp and thought she'd be ideal for Willow's cards.

Images: Study Tilda by Magnolia, coloured with promarkers: Ivory & Blush for the skin, Blossom, Rose Pink & Maroon for her top and pullover, Blue Pearl, Cornflower and China Blue for her jeans, Cinnamon & Cocoa for her boots, Sandstone & Cinnamon for her book, Sandstone, Cinnamon, Cocoa & Umber for her hair.

Papers are all from Lindsay's super freebie card kit 

the card blank was inked with whispers chestnut inkpad

the apple was diecut from core'dinations card with a cuttlekids die in the cuttlebug and the mat underneath the image was cut using a large oval scallop nestie

the greeting is from the CCSR Sentiments stamp set and the leaves are from my stash

And here's Tilda's close-up....

These are lovely, I use this image quite a bit, my colleague at work is German and her two little girls look very Tilda-like - so I love the images because they remind me of those two lovely little girls
