Around the World Part I

Through the years I've managed to get few Magnolia stamps, although they don't have nose, neither mouth, there is something about them... Backgrounds are fabulous, and suit almost everywhere, windows, doors, furniture for example.

Well, to cut a long story short, here is Tilda in Australia.

Hooray, I got masking right! This fence (barbed, :( not user friendly) is also stamp from Magnolia.

Flexmarkers seem to suit me with Tilda, because of their flexibility, hahah, now I finally got it! (I'm kidding.) Name, I mean. Anyhow, Flexmarkers act very differently than Promarkers, my opinion, not Letraset's.

I LOVE the result. Tilda is in Australia travelling around the world and after lots of raining in April, those fantastic flowers come up. Well, no idea when it is raining in Oz, but this is my back story, heheh.

What did I need: 

Card stock - Papermill, Craftwork Cards, Lidl and Homebargains
Card blank - Craft UK
Stamps Magnolia - Koala Hugs Tilda and Barbed Fence
Ink - Stampin Up Early Espresso and Crumb Cake
Colouring - Flexmarkers

Pearls, twine - stash

Ok, that's it! I hope this gets me some encouragement to continue trying to make Magnolia Tilda and Edwin look alive(ish)

It would be lovely to have some feedback. What is good publicly and what is bad, of course in private :D :D Nah, it's just although I have pile of these stamps, I've always found it so very difficult to colour them. Trying to get colours blend. Getting emotions shown. Oh boy. 

Here are my previous colouring attempts:
