Just Magnolia Challenge

This week we have a fabulous sketch for you from our very own Martine, hope you enjoy working with it, I know I did. Our sponsor this week is the lovely generous Heidi from Simon says Stamp. To see the sketch and join us this week just click Here.



Good morning I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend, here in the UK we are forcast a nice sunny and warm few days, Yipee!! so this week card seems very apt. I love these new Summer Tildas and have used Sailor Tilda and background stamp from the new release the life bouy is also an older Magnolia Stamp, I have punched a circle and coloured with Copics to make the sun, the rest of the image has been coloured with Distress Inks. There dosn't seem to be much contrast between the papers in the photos but there is IRL, I run the blue card through the cuttlebug in the swirl folder hoping it gives the impression of waves.



Now I think I have an apology to make to all my lovely followers for yesterdays Post Title, I had to laugh at the amount of you who thought my little Pink Bundle had arrived still no news I am afraid, so I am going to have Ben and Robert for a few days again as Vikki is really suffering in this hot and humid weather. I am also working on a new project for Crafters Companion that is due for release on Ideal World next Wednesday at 9pm. I am trying to get as much blog hopping done in the next couple of hours before the boys arrive if I don't get round to you I apologise now and thank you all for your continuing support.

Recipe:
Stamps - Magnolia available for pre-order from Simon Says Stamp
Colouring Medium - Distress Inks: Faded Jeans, Brushed Corduroy, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye.
Embellies from stash


Just a quick reminder that today is the last day for the pre-orders of
Elizabeth Bells Summer Collection from Whiff of Joy

Thanks for looking
Hugs
