Snowy Lantern Tilda

Hi everyone, well I say snowy lantern Tilda but the snow looks more like hailstones! Woodware fluffy stuff really does fluff. I've made this card for the new combined Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge and followed the sketch for this week. Lantern tilda is pencil and marker coloured and her background is sponged with distress inks. Image and half circle are red bazzil and the background paper is My Minds Eye. Fluffy yarn, dew drops, white gel pen dots and rub on sentiment to finish. Note to self, use fluffy stuff sparingly.

Back soon,
Chris
