Colour Create Tilda with Book

Hi Everyone and welcome to another Colour Create Challenge!

This challenge the colours have been chosen by our teamie Julie and are Ivory, Duck Egg Blue and one other colour from this gorgeous inspirational picture below. (The optional extra is Shabby Chic.)

I just loved this picture and knew it would be perfect for my Tilda with Book image from Magnolia.  Our generous sponsor this week is Michelle from Michelle's Scrapbooking who has a lovely range of Magnolias in store.

I've chosen to colour Tilda in Copics and I've added some Dimensional Magic to her glasses for that realistic effect. I managed to get a reflection in the photo just like real glasses - pure luck!!!

I had this mixture of flowers in my stash and thought I'd try and replicate the bunch of flowers from the inspiration picture.

The Magnolia Book Stamp is placed on very thin foam dots and Tilda has been placed just in front of them on thicker foam dots.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:-
Papertake Weekly - Something Old (Magnolia Stamps), Something New (the Paper just purchased it), Something Borrowed (the Butterfly Punch) and Something Blue (Ribbon)
