Koala HugTilda


When I saw this adorable limited edition Koala Hug Tilda from Magnolia stamps, I knew she would pair up perfectly with my Cheery Lynn Designs Aussie Kangaroo Doily.  How cute are they together?  When I die cut the doily I got these adorable little kangaroo drop outs which I used to make the border across the bottom.  I die cut the doily twice, once out of Kraft paper and once out of the DP.  Then mounted them on top of each other to make the doily a little more substantial and then inserted the Kraft kangaroos back into the doily. I stamped Tilda with Memento Tuxedo black onto Cryogen paper. 
Copics used:
Tilda - E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair - E23, E25, E27
Dress and Hatband - YG91, YG93 (after I colored her and then searched for paper, I realized the greens I chose were too gray so I added Y04 on top to give them more of a yellow cast)
Hat and Boots - E41, E42, E43
Koala - W00, W1, W3


To finish the inside of the card, I added the newly released Francesca border and the last two drop out kangaroos.  The DP is from the Basic Grey Green at Heart 6x6 pad.  Finished size is 6" square.

Very cute! What wonderful colors for the "Kangaroo" theme! Always love Tilda and she is adorable. The Francesca Border is beautiful! Like how you punched another doily and added back the contrasting kangaroos.

Awww, so cute. And the paper is just perfect for the Tilda you've used. The coloring is as always the greatest and the border goes along with the theme. Edna
