Feminine Friday


Just Magnolia Challenge

You are going to love the theme we have for you this week on Just Magnolia Challenge its a stunning colour challenge the colours are

PINK GREY WITH OPTIONAL BLACK

Yummy, I loved working with this combination. Hope you will come and join us again this week, please visit the Challenge Blog to see the stunning cards made by my fellow DT Divas you will be amazed.



This Tilda from the Yummy for Your Tummy collection and I think she is just so feminine and pretty, she has been coloured with Distress Inks (Black Soot, Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye), the lovely grey papers are from the New Magnolia Paper collection, the label was cut with a die from The Nesties Labels set, the Ribbon was a hanging ribbon from a lovely pair of Per Una PJs, lol. The flowers as usual are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I could not find any grey flowers so I sprayed white Cherry Blossom with Silver Glimmer Mist to get the right colour.

As I said I will try to do a tutorial for Distress Ink colouring next week, but in the meantime a lot of you have asked what paper I use, I think the paper is really important and plays a big part in attaining the best finish, I use Fabriano Classico Fat Pad, but even more important it has to be Hot Pressed (HP), this is a very smooth finished paper, the pads are available from Artifolk, this link will take you to the correct page. It is quite expensive but I really would not use anything else.



Well its the weekend at last and I am off to London today, I am so looking forward to the show and hope I bump into lots of my blogging buddies, I am meeting up with a few for coffee in the afternoon and of course I am just so excited to be catching up with my crafting Gurus dear Bev and Rach. I have a post for Sunday so hope it works. Have a great weekend everyone and I will try not to spend too much (Yeah!!!!!!! fat chance).

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
