Just Magnolia First Challenge


Just Magnolia is a new challenge sit which launched last Friday. The DT are such a talented bunch and I just adore their projects. The challenge was a sketch and what a fab sketch it was. I had to rotate it to fit the image but I think it works. The gorgeous papers are from Basic Grey Bittersweet collection. I coloured Tilda with my Derwent Inktense pencils and matted her on some of the DP as well, leaving a tiny border. I attached Tilda to the card using foam pads. The sentiment is a HOTP stamp and the flowers and gems are from my stash. There is a fabulous prize up for grabs to celebrate the launch of Just Magnolia, go check it out, the link is in my sidebar.
I have made some tags for a swap I am involved in. Here is one of them. I inked up the tag with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and then stamps a swirly Tim Holtz background in Worn Lipstick. The Gorjuss image was stamped and watercoloured, cut out and adhered to the tag. The butterfly charm was from the lovely Jill at Hobby House and the flower, brad and ribbon are from my stash. I also added Glossy Accents to the little clip in her hair but I doubt you will be able to see that.
Thanks for stopping by
