Tilda with Straw Hat

Hello everyone how are you all doing.  I nearly fainted this morning when I opened the curtains to blue sky and sunshine its still very cold but sunshine nonetheless so I'm not complaining.  In fact I apologise my photos seem a little on the dark side but I couldn't take them in the conservatory like I normally do as it was too bright!!!!
Anyway, I've gone back to my Magnolias for this one and did a bit of masking and picked out the yellows in my DPs for the colour combo.
Image:  Magnolia 'Tilda with Straw Hat' & 'stone path'
Medium:  copics/promarkers
Papers:  First Edition 'Blank Canvas'
Dies:  Memory Box 'puffy clouds', Spellbinders 'labels 22'
Flower:  Cherry blossom from WOC
Another piccie to show you the side view.  The semi circle of hearts behind the top layer of papers is not a punch it is in fact a cupcake wrap.  I bought a pack of 20 from Hobbycraft a while back as I liked the filigree hearts.
Lastly a close up of the images.  I'm fairly happy with how they've turned out and with hindsight I should have added some clouds in but this is something I need to practice so is on my 'have a go' list.
Copics used
Dress:  Y21, YR23 + vanilla promarker
Hat/socks:  BG11, BG13, BG15
Flowers/ribbon:  R000, R14, R32
Hair/shoes:  E50, E53, E57
Pebbles:  W1, W3, W5, W7, E47, E49
Challenges I would like to enter:-
Okay time for me to dash we've just come back from seeing The Croods at the cinema and it was great the funniest film I've seen in a while but now they want food so I'm off to do tea.  I hope you all had an enjoyable Easter.
Enjoy the short week folks, take care
