Just Magnolia Challenge - Sketch by Mina


This weeks Just Magnolia Challenge is a sketch by Mina, Ive used one of the yummy stamps, this one has Tilda sitting with a lollipop in her hand, Ive then masked her and stamped the tins and jar behind her. After which Ive coloured her with my copic pens, and cut her out with my Martha Stewart Circle cutter, not the easiest of things to use but it allows you to cut bigger circles than normally, I also used it on a piece of pink pearlescent card for the mount. Ive also used one of the sentiments from the same set and cut and mounted it with some foam tape ready for the card. Before sticking both to their mounts I have used a pink chalkpad to distress the edges.

My base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of pink pearlescent card and one of several Nitwit Download Papers, this has a soft pink, lime green circle flourish pattern on. For the next mounts Ive used another piece of the same pink card and cut it three then run it through my cuttlebug with the swirl pattern on, this was then stuck to the base card. The cross at the bottom is made up of two different ribbons, one organza with flowers on and a pink grosgrain patterned ribbon top and bottom.

Ive then punched out some swirls from some pink and lime green gingham paper and arranged them down the edge of the card then popped some pearl gems amount the swirls. After which I have made up some flowers from my crochet ones, popped some pearl brads through the centre and stuck them on top of some punched out fern leaves in two opposite corners.
