Just Magnolia Challenge Week 103 - Sketch

Hi Everyone

I Hope you are all enjoying the bank holiday and are sick of the sight of chocolate lol.
I have made a card today for the Just Magnolia Hanglar & Stanglar Challenge blog which is a sketch which I  turned :)

I have only discovered Magnolia about 6 months again so I have all these gorgeous stamps from previous collections to find and play with too ! So I picked The fairytale collection for my project this week.  I made a wee cameo from some Magnolia Paper and I cut a  oval which I decorated with half pearls and put all over it Tim Holtz Glossy accents and then left it to dry for forever lol . Figure you could make lots of different types. The possibilities are endless !!!

First of all I wanted to make a gift tag and envelope so I found a tutorial on youtube but scrapped that idea and just made it up lol !! The inside has a wee envelope with a tag. The envelope was just the same as making a criss cross card if you want to look it up and have a go.

I tried doing softer colouring and really liked the results. I think everyone has a style can you tell I haven't figured mine out yet !!! Do you think you have to have a style ?
So here is my tag

Recipe :- Magnolia Fairytale Collection 2010
Mediums - primacolor pencils,sansador to blend on white 240gsm smooth paper. Distress inks.
Papers/Cardstock - K &  Co Natural Recycled Card Bo Bunny & Magnolia
Tools :- Cuttlebug, Spellbinders Standard Circles , Spellbinder  Flower silhouettes, Sewing machine.
Other Stuff - Tim Holtz Die Cuts, Anita's Butterfly stickers, half flat pearls, natural twine, thread and buttons from own stash. Berisford double satin ribbon. Flowers and seam binding from WOC. Stickles stardust & platinum.

Oh I found this cool site for altering your pics and it is so easy to use  and it does not use up your memory on your pc, its called fotoflex, it's free !

Bye For Now and thank you for following me and visiting !!!

  1. What a fab card, more of a gift really. So much detail, I'm sure whoever receives it will treasure it. I like the cameo idea and the tag is so sweet.

    I'm not sure that I have a style yet with my colouring. I kind of just go with it and see how the end result looks. Probably not the best way to do things, but oh well!

    Take care
