Miss Dorothy and sweet Tilda are off to the Circus

Hello my dears,  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Santa brought you some lovely gifts!!!!   I was spoiled as ever from my sweet family and friends.  

I had a little play yesterday with some of my new Magnolia Stamps which came from the lovely Diana over at Magnolia-licious Store.  Here we have Miss Dorothy and of course Elephant Show Tilda, you can find them HERE with wonderful discounted/sale prices on everything in the Store, yes I did say everything, including all of the stamp ranges and dies.  Wow!!! get over there quick before they all disappear.

Sweet Tilda has been coloured all over with one Copic (No. 000) and then I've used my Derwent soft pencils with my sansodor oil to add the colour.  Miss Dorothy has been coloured with Flexmarkers and Derwent soft pencils.  You can't see the shine and glitter but on Miss Dorothy's skull cap accent swirls I've used my Sakura tiara pens.

As always I will add a list of ingredients used with links where possible at the bottom of my post.

In the meantime I wish you all a wonderful weekend ahead.
