Just Magnolia Challenge
This week our sponsor is All That Scraps
And the prize is any C.C. Designs stamp set of your choice!! And oh my! There are some fabulous sets for you to choose from!
This week we have a sketch for you, you can rotate the sketch and resize the elements, as long as you follow the original sketch so your entry qualifies for the prize draw. The winner will be chosen by Random Generator next week so to be in the running all you need to do is ensure you have at least one Magnolia image on your card and link your card (not your blog) in Mr Linky and have your card posted by 10 pm UK time next Thursday. To see the sketch and also the fabulous cards created by my Fellow DT Members just click Here
At last I found where I had stored last Christmas Magnolia stamps, do you ever put things in a safe place then forget where you put them, I spent ages trying to find where I had stored my last years Christmas stamps and papers.
I have masked Tilda and used the Magnolia Silent Night Text stamp as a background for her. I used the largest Nestie in this label set to cut out the image, then drew around the Nestie on red card and cut by hand to get the border (thanks Bev for this idea). I cannot remember where I got the lace from, I thought it gave the look of Icicles.
I used distress inks to colour Tilda then using the Tim Holtz distressing pad went all around the image and backing papers with Frayed Burlap ink. The large Poinsettia was covered with Glossy Accents then sprinkled with Twinklets, the brad was coloured to match with a Copic Marker. The Poinsettia, spacer and brad were bought from The Hobby House stand at Ally Pally. The red flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been spritzed with Glimmer Mist. The sentiment is also one of last years Christmas Magnolia releases.
A closer look at the flowers.
Now I am off to do a but of blog hopping, hoped to do it early but Mr Blogger was playing up again, perhaps he went on strike in sympathy with the Postmen.
Thanks for looking
