I received my Spring Magnolia Kit this week and of course couldn’t wait to play, but although I think this must be my favourite ever kit, I was really disappointed in the quality, in fact one side of the sheet was so thin I could not get it to stamp properly as one side was thicker than the other, I must say I was a bit miffed when I think how much we pay for the kit.
I must have taken 10 pictures just to get one descent one today, perhaps its the volcanic dust!!!!, Distress Inks have been used to colour Lady Tilda
Face and Hands – Tattered Rose, Tea Dye and Worn Lipstick, Dress Victorian Velvet and Chipped Sapphire, Hair – Tea Dye and Frayed Burlap.
The papers are by Magnolia , Prima Pearl Swirls are from The Hobby House, I made the With Love Label with the packaging of the pearls which I distressed with Frayed Burlap then punched with a Label Punch also from The Hobby House, the round Thank You Sentiment is by SU, of course the beautiful Roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, what on earth did we do before we discovered WOC, (by the way there are some new Wild Roses on the website, Paul uploaded them last night, you had better be quick you know they don’t stay on there long).
Just had to say that I went over to Crafts U Love view the new Magnolia stamps due for release in early May OMG I fell in love especially with Fairy Dust and Ballerina Tilda, my purse is a bit lighter this morning.
Here is my little tin to hold some soaps I made for Heidi, I have used the Tiny Flying Tilda from the Spring Kit on here.
Well if you haven’t fallen asleep after reading all this I have one last Picture to show you this is my candy for the blog hop, I will draw a random number at the end of the hop.
