The Good Shepherdess

006a

Would you believe Just Magnolia Challenge has been going for nearly a year now,  it seems like yesterday Bev and I came up with an idea for a Magnolia only challenge.  I always look forward to Fridays just for the chance to use my Magnolias.  We have a fabulous Challenge for you this week we would like you to make an Easel card, the only rule is you must use a Magnolia image somewhere on your card.  There are some fantastic examples of Easel Cards made by my fellow DT members on the challenge blog so please come and join us.

Can anyone tell me a good way to take photos of Easel Cards!!!

My new Magnolias arrived from Crafts U Love this week and I had to put them away without stamping up until last night as I just didn’t have the time to use them.  I can assure you that was really really difficult.  I coloured both the Tildas with the new Tim Holtzs Distress Inks which I bought  from Crafters Companion .

011

The papers are also new release from Magnolia from Crafts U Love they are gorgeous!!! the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I cannot help thinking that this Tildas head is rather too big for her body on the above image, it has been bugging me does anyone else agree?

010  Nothing wrong with the size of her head on this one, what a fabulous image this is.  The sentiment is also a Magnolia Waster release.

Have a great weekend

Hugs Jacqui x

Stunning card Jacqui. I just love easel cards. I tend to agree with you about the size of her head. There are a few like that. Beautiful papers and that is a super verse.

Lizzy said...

WOW this is absolutely stunning ~ luv the colours & the layout is fab xx lizzy xx

Janice W. said...

Oh by the way. I do think the head does seem larger in the first image. Put the stamps together or overlay and compare the images in the window or a light box. Now I am really curious to know. Could be our eyes playing tricks on us, or maybe not. If you get a chance, do let us know. Thanks Jacqui!
