Just Magnolia challenge #1
I just popped online yesterday to check up on what was happening in Blogland, as I was having withdrawal symptoms, and I noticed that there was a new challenge called Just Magnolia which is exactly that, a challenge site just for Magnolia stamps. Now, as these are my all time favourites I really wanted to join in for their first challenge (not to mention their prize making my mouth water LOL!) so I set about making this card from their sketch.
I must say I found the sketch quite tricky (but that could be due to me being out of practice lately) and as there was quite a lot to it I decided to use quite muted colours, I now have the feeling that could have been a mistake but c'est la vie!
* Image - Cross stitch Tilda, flowers and butterfly - Magnolia
* Colouring medium - Letraset promarkers
* Backing papers - K & Co
* Flowers - Digital Scrapbook download
* Sentiment - done on PC
I hope you like the card, I won't tell you how long it took me to decide which Tilda to use, suffice to say that it was more than a few minutes! I'm blaming Magnolia for that as each new kit manages to be cuter than the last (I have no idea how they manage to keep doing that!) Little cross stitch Tilda really does have to be one of my all time favourites though and she always reminds me a little of Alice in Wonderland.
Alan and I are popping up to Suffolk tomorrow to visit family for a while, but I should be back next week and I'm hoping that things will settle down a little then and I'll be able to get back to crafting and most importantly, visiting all my favourite blogs and seeing what you've all been up to while I've been missing, so expect to start receiving comments from me again soon LOL!!
