Just Magnolia Challenge


This weeks Theme  on Just Magnolia Challenge is a Recipe: 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 ribbon.  Easy hey?

Creative Treasures Header

We are being sponsored by Tracy of Creative Treasures - a family run business with a love of all things craft related. They stock a great range of Mulberry Flowers, ribbons, lace, crystal drops, card candy, charms and lots of pretty embellishments. They are always adding new stock. Our aim is to provide a fantastic customer service and great value for money. 


I had a tidy up of my craft desk and found enough space to get out my Distress Inks after a long break from using them, it was heaven didn’t realise how much I had missed using them.  I have coloured Ballerina Tilda, with the following colours:

Face,Hands & Legs – Tea Dye and Tattered Rose, Dress & Shoes Weathered Wood, Hair & soles of shoes Antique Linen.

I stamped around the edge of the image with a Stempleglede Swirl Stamp which I then glittered with Glamour Dust, The Sentiment is also a Magnolia Stamp and I have also glittered the first letter of each word.

The lush papers are Magnolia available at Crafts U Love, OMG you must check out the new Wedding Collection papers they are stunning.  The Blue Cherry Blossom which has been glittered around the edge with StarDust Stickles are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

002I understand it is going to be very hot today it could even reach 31 degrees so please take care if you are going out.

Big Hugs
