Tilda With Candle

I adore this sweet new image from Magnolia Stamps. I couldn't wait to color her! I used some of the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper as the background paper and then pulled the colors from the paper to color Tilda. I wanted it to be soft, so I didn't use any really dark colors. I created a mask and used my air compressor to airbrush the background.

The ribbon was some velveteen holiday ribbon from my stash and I used the Martha Stewart branch punch for the foliage.
