Chess Tilda...

Fill Your Life With Sunshine
And Your Heart With Love

Today I have a very simple bookmark/tag to show you. I didn't have a lot of time, so a bookmark/tag was a great choice. And, it fits the 'Back To School' theme perfectly. I already had the base of the tag sitting on my craft desk. I actually cut it out quite a while ago when I got the Magnolia DooHickey 'Old Swedish Lace' die from Magnolia-licious. I just never got around to using it!

So, I picked out dp's from BoBunny's 'Vicki B' 6x6 paper pad, which is currently on sale at Love To Stamp. Then I looked through my stamps from Magnolia's 'Winner Takes All' collection and I just had to use this sweet little #378 'Chess Tilda'. I JUST LOVE HER GLASSES!!! I don't ever remember seeing a Tilda with glasses and I think she is just the sweetest thing! I have her sitting on #557 Soccer Bench. The entire 'Winner Takes All' collection is available at Magnolia-licious. You can also get the entire collection in Mini form!!! Magnolia-licious has the lowest prices and best customer service. It's the only place that I shop for my Magnolia's.

What else is on this tag? I practically shredded some cheesecloth and scrunched it up behind the image. I grabbed some orange string from my stash, wrapped it around a few times, and then split the ends. I topped the knot with a heart button that I found in my button drawer. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I stamped it on some kraft paper cut with my Magnolia DooHickey 'Dream Tag' die. The flowers and gems were left over from a Magnolia DT kit that I got many months back. And finally, all edges were given a bit of age with some Ranger DI Walnut Stain.

I colored this little cutie with Copic markers. Here are the color details:

E000, 00, 01, 11, 13, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 50
R20, 30, 81, 83, 85
W3, 5
N0, 1, 3
G0000, 12, 21, 24

That's all I have for today! Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you'll leave a little note to let me know you were here :-)
