TOMIC - Challenge 19 - Magnolia For Ever !!

Hi Crafty Bloggers

Hope you all have some lovely crafty time at the weekend. I had a couple of days off ! so got crafting for TOMIC challenge 19 - Magnolia For ever where you need to use a sitting Tilda and a doohickey die  . While everyone else was out and I got lots of lovely peace & quiet !! I have used Sweet Christmas Tilda with  wrapped presents and the Noel stamp. I have used my all time favourite Doohickeys Doily flowers cutting die.

I made the flower by cutting two large doily flowers and one little. I used my cuttlebug. I sprayed the die cuts with a mixture of  antique linen reinker , water and perfect pearls powder in a mist spray . I  cut a long strip of cheesecloth and dyed it with the same mixture above except I used fired brick . I frayed the edges and tacked along one side and pulled the thread to make it scrunch together. I put it all together with glossy accents glue and popped a green button in the middle topped with dots of crystal stickles.

Here is a picture where I dyed seam binding the same way as the cheesecloth and made two bows. I put tiny left over lace at the bottom of the bows that I had left over from the frame. I  cut out the Noel stamp and made a  tiny hole with my cropadile and I attached crochet yarn to the little holes and made tiny bows.

I had to colour some more of these darling stamps so I chose  Tilda with cross stitch heart for the inside. I just love the choice of reds in the prismacolor collection. This is the top section. I used puffy paint on the hat trim too.

Here is the bottom section just had to make another one of these super flowers for inside !!

I am off to see what other crafty creations I can make !! Thankyou for visiting and have a geat weekend !! Recipe underneath .
