(Notice her red sparkly “Dorothy” shoes??!!)

Have I mentioned how much I love Magnolia images?    Our challenge this week for the Copic Creations Blog  is Blonde Hair and, it’s being sponsored by Magnolia-icious!  How cool is that?!!    They are giving away THREE Magnolia stamps to the lucky winner of this challenge.   Be sure to post your card before May 31st to be eligible!

The Tilda stamp I used is called Cherry Dress Tilda.   I used a NEW product available at 7 Kids College Fund called ~ **SMOOCH**!    Yep, the name is Smooch!   It comes in a tiny little bottle, containing  just a “smooch” of very cool pearlescent paint!!  I used some Smooch in the color “siren” on Tilda’s red shoes.  It’s very different than the normal glittery paint applicants, it’s actual paint.  The brush works really well for painting the tiniest things, i.e., the little cherries on Tilda’s dress!   I really had fun using this paint, it dries amazingly fast too!!  You really should try it!  Be sure to tell them I sent ya!   🙂

I also hope you will give our challenge a try.  We’ve included some awesome tutorials and drawings featuring “blonde hair”.    [Yes, Sue K., you now have enough markers, it’s time to join us!    AND my DS sister, Nancy, it’s time for you too!]   😀     hee hee!   love ya!
