Hopping Tilda

It's warming up outside and I'm getting ready for some spring gardening!  I was tempted to do it last week but I thought I'd wait a little bit longer just to make sure a surprise freeze doesn't kill the plants.  Anyway, I thought this would be a great card to share... it's using Daffodil Del from Make it Crafty (and one of the rubber stamps that I've selected to stock in the Little Miss Muffet Stamps store too!)

The other image is Hopping Tilda (or Jumping Tilda?) from Magnolia.  You may not recognize it as a Magnolia stamp but with some ECP (Extreme Color Placement) on the face, I've been able to add a little more character and tried to go for a joyful expression.  Here's a side-by-side of the stamp and the colored version:

I like using the Daffodil Del stamp because the flowers are on the side which make it perfect to place an image in the center.  It's one of those background stamps that go so well together that it looks like one large scene stamp. Here are some close up and also a closer view of the dress (also colored with ECP).

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you're having a great week!
