Blue Tilda

I have to say that I just LOVE how this card turned out.  I followed Suzanne Dean's video for creating watercolor backgrounds and I'm really happy with how this little cutie looks.  I am definitely going to be using that technique again!  Also, did you know that you can make clear rhinestones whatever color you want just by coloring them with your Copic markers?  I don't remember where I saw that, but that sure did come in handy when I wanted some light yellow rhinestones on this card. 
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda  Paper: Frances Meyer  Ink: Copics, Momento Tuxedo Black, Sharpie white Poster-Paint pen  Misc: Magnolia flower, Recollections flowers, ribbon, button, twine, rhinestones, Punch Bunch punch, Stickles, Cuttlebug
