Well at last I have been able to create a DT card for Just Magnolia Challenge seems ages since I have participated, this week we are hosted by the lovely Mina who has chosen the Theme of Ribbon, Ribbon and More Ribbon, wow a challenge right up my street, thank you dear xxx. I am also entering this card for Novembers Challenge on CPL Challenge.
I really enjoyed making this card, lots of my favourite images, dies, and of course ribbons!!!!! I have used Copics to colour Tilda and the fabulous Trees, the trees have been covered in Glamour Dust. The inspiration for the colours I have used on Tilda were inspired by the delicious Magnolia Paper available from Dies to Die For. The Doo Hickey “Lovely Fence” and Tilda Stamp are also available from Dies to Die For.
The Christmas Tree Stamps are old Magnolia ones, I am not sure if they are still available, but I bring them out every year I love the shape of them and they are a dream to colour. I bought the Sizzix Snowflake Border Die from Crafts U Love at the NEC this is the first time I have had a chance to use it I distressed the edges of the snowflakes with Iced Spruce Distress Ink from the New Winter Collection of Three inks, (each one of them is an awesome colour these are another must have).
The Ribbon & Flowers I have used are from The Ribbon Girl and the Holly Berrys from Wild Orchid Crafts, I have used one of the stamps from the Lili of the Valley “Grunge “Grunge Post Card Stamp Sheet” on the Tag.
