Sun tan Tilda

Hi guys,
just explaining why I'm awol at the moment lol,
the sun is finally shining it's little head off in our part of the world ans so I have been outside soaking a little rays,
seeing as it says it will go soon I didn't want to miss it,

anyway I've made a card, using copics in a different way to my usual way, 
I've tried to get the copic distressed look, it's the first time I've tried it and I quite like it, may be because I also love to use distress inks too,
I also love this Magnolia image, isn't she soooo cute!
The distress look is for darker edges and quite pale centres, to the bits your colouring,

The gorgeous flowers are from hobbycraft and wild orcid crafts,
my hearts are made out of cardboard which I have distressed with crackle paint and I have done the same with the fancy corner too,

Colour creations ~ Distress with copics
Just Magnolia ~ anything goes plus  optional lace,

well I hope you likey, I'm off now to look at this gorgeous blue sky again lol,
I will visit you soon,
love and hugs Liz xx
