Using Basic Grey Max & Whiskers mittens/max plaid paper, I die cut another page for my Magnolia Stamps Sampler Mini Book.
I've stamped and used Copic colors to fill the Longing Tilda image from the Fairy Tale Collection 2010. Spellbinders Lacey Circle dies make a beautiful matting for Tilda.
Using purple tones for their contrast with the yellows of Tilda's dress, I've added a dotted background by stippling with Copics.
Do you think that this form of an outline shadow appears to make Tilda pop forward? Find more examples of dotted backgrounds here.
I've added some Prima flowers and a simple Inkadinkado sentiment to complete this additional page for my Magnolia Stamps Sampler Mini Book. Here's how the completed page looks . . .
Here's how this page appears in the book . . .

As a side note, I'm still trying to like X-Press It paper. Here, rather than allowing for a smooth blend, I find that X-Press It paper made my image very splotchy, especially in the areas of the skin tones.
