Second Challenge Card


Todays card is the one I am going to enter for the Just Magnolia Challenge this week, colours being Pink and Green.

I have stamped an image of Tilda with Lilac's onto white card and coloured her with my Karisma pencils, Ive then used one of my Nestabilitie Label dies to punch her out and then mounted her onto another of the Label dies (punched out in dark green card).

The base card is a 8"x 8" card on top of which I have layered up for the first layer a piece of dark green card and one of the design papers from the Bearly Mine Designs, Extreme Designs Vol.1 Cd. Ive actually used three of the papers a pink patterned one for the base layer and a pale green one for the second layer, and a further patterned one for the third layer. The second layer was mounted onto another piece of dark green card, and a piece of lace was wound and stuck to the centre, Ive then positioned it at an angle across the base card.

Ive then stuck my mounted image onto a third patterned layer and positioned just of centre on the base card, then cut out some flourishes with my Nestabilitie die, and arranged them around the card and put some jems in, around and between them.

The lilac flowers were created with my punches using my Leonie Em Floral Punch Craft book and tools, then arrange at the top of the right hand side of the card. To finish of I have stamped a greeting onto white card and punched it out with the Heart Nestabilitie dies and layered it onto a piece of Pink Pearlescent card cut with the scalloped one.
