Star Tilda at Just Magnolia
A very happy Saturday to everyone! I wish for each of you an exceptional weekend and loads of fun!
This week over at the Just Magnolia our challenge is White + One, so white plus any other colour for your papers and embellishments. You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice and as long as the main image on your creation is a Magnolia stamp you will qualify to be in the draw for the fabulous prize offered by Letraset, the makers of Promarkers . And remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. The challenge closes next Thursday 25 November 8pm UK time. We hope you will come over and check out the lovely cards/projects of the DT and be so excited that you will want to join with us this week!!
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting, the DP is from the TILDA Paperpack Santa's Christmas. Although this is a Christmas paper it is NOT red, but rather more of a dark pink-red...gorgeous quality of papers though!! All background panels are machine stitched and Stickled with Star Dust. The sweet, sweet little Star Tilda from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, and cut out with oval Nesties. Her dress was then covered with a coat of Shimmerz, and gold glitter was used for the star she is holding. I used a lovely hand-crocheted doily which was a gift from my sweet friend Suzan and placed some half-pearls in each of the florets. The horizontal is 5/8" Sheer Ruffle Edge White from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the bow is anchoring a small silver angel charm. The floral treatment was placed on white satin leaves and are made with Ivory Curly Wild Rose, Ivory Open Rose, Rosy Pink Heather Stems, and 6mm Ivory Rose Buds, all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The little berries were found in a little local antique shop. Finally I added pearls to soften the corners.
For the simple inside I used a couple of paper doilies for focal points on each panel, added a few tiny flowers, some of the same ribbon, and a double Nestie jotting spot.
I hope you like my little creation and will decide to join with us at Just Magnolia this week. We would love to see your WHITE + ONE cards/projects!
