Bubbling Tilda at Just Magnolia
Happy Saturday to everyone and I hope you are starting a fun and exciting weekend!! I know my weekend is going great and I intend to enjoy each and every moment of it!!!
This week at Just Magnolia we have our special monthly challenge and this time we are treated to a marvelous tutorial for pleating lace by the amazingly talented Mindy. 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. If you meet these requirements, you will qualify to be in the draw for the splendid prize from Simon Says Stamp. And remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. Please turn off comment verification if you want the DT to leave you a comment. There are step by step instructions in the side bar at Just Magnolia on how to turn it off and enable moderation.
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is MM, and all DP is from the Magnolia Fairytale Collection at Magnolia-licious. All background panels are machine stitched. I used that darling little Bubbling Tilda, stamped her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics, using Shimmerz on the wings, Glossy Accents on the bubbles, and Gold Smooch on the bubbler. Rather than pleat lace, I pleated lavender organza ribbon and finished it with a sequin trim which was a gift from Suzan...thank you so much, sweetie, for ALL the lovely lavender trims!! To complete the front, I added a lavender organza bow with butterfly center, a floral combo of pale lavender roses and MS punched fronds, all painted with Shimmerz, and finally several crystal BUBBLES!!!! Fun, huh?
For the first panel on the inside I used the same sequin trim with organza bow and roses as the front. I also added a silver star cut out with Nesties and some crystal bubbles. For the jotting panel more star Nesties and Bubbles.
I hope you like my little creation and will want to join us at Just Magnolia during this week. Please come on over and check out the absolutely gorgeous cards by the DT Members featuring the cutest Maggies!!
