Just Magnolia #43
Hi everyone, I'm back again with another card!
I just can't seem to get enough of crafting at the moment, it really seems to be giving me a helping hand as I'm able to 'lose' myself and forget about real life. In view of this you may be seeing quite a few of my creations in the near future, are you strong enough for that? LOL!
Anyway, on to the card......it's been ages since I managed to join in with the Just Magnolia challenge. It was little Tilda who first weaned me away from vintage and into cute, and she still remains one of my favourite of the little 'sweeties' so I really must try harder to participate more often.
This week the challenge is a fabulous sketch by JayJay, and for my card I've used the adorable 'Tilda picking Lilacs'.
Don't you just love those sweet little plaits blowing in the breeze? (for anyone not from the UK, plaits are our name for pigtails)
I used Distress Inks around the gingham paper, but I still need much more practice with these, no matter how much I try I can't seem to get to grips with them.
I wanted to use some spring like colours for this, mainly to remind myself that it should be on it's way, although with the weather we're having at the moment you'd be forgiven for thinking it's the middle of winter!
