Christmas Angel Tilda!

Happy Friday everyone! Today I have a card for Just Magnolia and Fussy and Fancy. I haven't used my Distress Inks in a while. I though I had colored to dark, but when I was finished I really like the outcome. I embossed the snowflakes in irridecent ice and then added a little blue the the background using my aquapainter. I added white sparkly fluff on the ground and bench, if you look closely.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Hi Mindy,
Ooooh, Angel Tilda is adorable decked out in her sweet blue outfit! I love your style and your attention to detail.
I tried finding an e-mail addy for you, but could not. I have a Copic marker question for you.
What blue color markers did you use for coloring the precious Frosty Winter figures posted Nov. 17th? Also, what color did you use for their hair?
Please e-mail me at
Thanks for your time and inspiration. Ü
