tilda with lilacs

this is a close up the colour is better I think the flash went off

tilda with lilacs

I saw this idea on you tube,the lady who was saying that she always stamps in black and embosses in clear,so I thought I would try that, I had looked around  friends blogs and most people were trying and using copics, I have only got the face colours so this card is done with a mixture
