Magnolia-Licious Challenge DT - Inspirational Photo Challenge

 Woohoo!!  It is time for another Magnolia-Licious Challenge and this fortnight we have the most gorgeous photo for your inspiration.  I was inspired by the reflection in the photo and decided to have a play around to see if I could create a reflection with the darling Tilda with dot bow as she looks just like she's going to send the heart floating on the water!  What do you think?  The card turned out rather large with the two images but I'm really pleased with it.
 Tilda with dot bow #3045 was coloured with copics and the dots on her bow were coloured with a white gel pen.  Copic colours are:

Skin:  E13, E11, E02, E00, E000, R22, R20, W3
Onesie:  C5, C3, C2, C1, C00
Heart and bow:  R59, R46, R37, R27, R22
Hair:  E09, E17, E23
Grass:  E43 

 The reflection was coloured with the same shades but starting a shade lighter to give the appearance of Tilda being reflected in the water.
 The edges have been stamped with a Stempelglede stamp from the Just a Note set.
 My favourite bit is where the heart is just dipping into the water!
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-Licious challenge and be in with a chance of winning Diana's special prize!

Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations!  Thanks for looking! x
