G"day from Australia Koala ! {Magnolia Tilda with Koala}

Hello my sweet friends around the world,
I am so sorry that I was not productive recently, I was not able to show you any cards so far !!
But please forgive me today, because I have a card to show you !!!
In occasion of Pauline, the founder of Magnolia rubberstamps Sweden and her family come to Singapore and Melbourne, Australia, I have made a very special card to welcoming them:-))
Pauline and her family will be going to Paperific Expo in Melbourne this coming weekend to exhibit Magnolia products, so please don't miss this chance to meet her personally and meet with Magnolia rubberstamps too !!

I stamped Tilda with Koala on 200gm Canson watercoloring paper and painted with distress inks and distress markers.
I cut the Go kreate dies as a card base and mat with patterned papers from Maja design.

Purple roses from I am and the chrysanth from The Ribbon Girl.
Fence dies from Magnolia DooHickeys, "Made with love" sentiment from Magnolia rubberstamps.
I have painted the fence dies cut with Ranger Rock Candy Crackle Paint.
You may noticed I used linen burlap on this card, I wish to create farm and grass feel, so I used a strip of linen burlap, painted with gesso and highligter with Claudine Hellmuth semi-gloss arcylic paint -landscape green.

I also used Spellbinders to mat the stamped and colored image.
"Wildalife Park" from a catalogue which I got when I travel to Perth.
I use doily and cheesecloth too to make the card more elegant.

I have taken a photo with awaken Koala and I feel excited, I think Tilda will be excited too when she sees the Koala personally=)))
I hope that you got inspired with the card and I wish you have a very bless weekend !
