Tilda with Flowing Hair at Just Magnolia
A wonderful Saturday to each of you and I hope your weekend is quickly becoming a special one!! It has been so beautiful in these NC mountains and a splendid opportunity to get lots of flowers planted and the more than 175 rose bushes all ready for blooming time!! This is my very favorite time of the year!! So wherever you may be, I hope you are enjoying it also!!
This week at Just Magnolia our challenge is a sketch provided by the magnificently talented and creative Bev Rochester. Don’t forget that you can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice as long as the main image on your creation is a Magnolia stamp. This week the fabulous prize is provided by Crafts U Love so come on over and join in with us!! We would love to see your take on Bev's fun and challenging sketch.
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, PTI for all matting, and the DPs are from the Paper Doll Collection by Crate Paper. Since many of you have asked, my cards are 6"x6" and rarely do I delineate from that size. The square panels were machine stitched. I used Tilda With Flowing Hair from Magnolia-licious and although I don't see her right now at Diana's store, I'm sure that she will try to order her for you if you contact her. She was colored with Copics with a touch of Stickles added to the flowers in the basket and then cut out and propped up for more dimension. The nesties on which she is resting are also propped up. For the horizontal band I used a Marianne Designs Creatables die from the Netherlands to cut out and emboss the ribbon band before threading it with grosgrain ribbon. To finish the front I used a flower treatment at the bottom and placed it on MS branches, a small bow to tie the card together, and pink pearls to soften the corners. If you look VERY closely you can see that I also added a tiny pink pearl to Tilda's little Mary Jane shoes...smile!!
I hope my little creation will inspire you to come over to Just Magnolia and check out all of the beautiful work done by the DT members. So grab at least one of your Maggies and participate with us this week!
