Just Magnolia Challenge
Firstly thanks for all your wonderful entries to last weeks challenge, we are always blown away by the standard of your creations.
This week we have a sketch by a blogger you all love our very own Bev, its a great sketch to work with and my fellow DT Divas have produced the most beautiful cards to get you started, we also welcome back dear Kim, we missed you while you were away dear so nice to have you back Mwah!!!
A delicious prize again from All that Scraps. To find out more and to see the fabulous DT cards just click Here.
I really enjoyed this sketch and also loved using this cute Tilda, I have coloured her with Distress Inks, I experimented with the colours on this one after reading a post by my Distress Ink Guru Camilla, she was saying that she mixed inks to get the correct colours for Tildas cheeks, so I gave that a go mixing Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Tea Dye, then I thought I would go one step further and try to match the Pink/Mauve on the fabulous Magnolia Papers, I mixed Worn Lipstick and Milled Lavender I think I almost achieved the perfect match. I have distressed the edges of all the papers and cards with Antique Linen Ink. The large rose arrived yesterday, it was one of many that I ordered from
Tabby Crafts and I am so pleased with them, of course it has been blitzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist for that added Sparkle, the beaded pins were made by myself.
I am off to the Hospital this morning Mum has to have a CT scan so hope to visit you all when I get back. Have a great weekend everyone
Thanks for looking
