Just Magnolia Challenge - Friendship


This weeks Challenge for Just Magnolia is called Friendship, so I decided to use this Butterfly Tilda with her arms out as my image for the topper. Ive stamped her out and coloured her with my copic pens, after I had finished her I wasnt happy with the result of her dress so I decided to try and bit of paper piecing, and have used a piece of one of my papers to stamp and cut the dress out and stick it to the image. I should have also said that I used my Sakura Glitter pens on her wings. After which I used my red inkpad around the edge and mounted her onto a piece of pink card. I also at the same time stamped my sentiment onto another piece of white card with the same red inkpad and used it around the edge in the same way as my stamped image. I then mounted this also onto a piece of the same pink card.

My base card is a 8"x 8" white card onto which I have layered up a piece of pink pearlescent card and then one of three patterned papers from the Nitwit Collection Affection, this first one is a very pretty rose pattern, I then used a striped paper on which I have used the new looped Martha Stewart Border punch, as yet I havent got the corner punch so I just used the border one instead. By the way these new punches are a dream to use, so easy.

The third layer is another piece of pink card and the third paper which is a very small pattern of pink, grey and white leaves, its the same paper that I used for her skirt. I then arranged it on my base card to the top left hand corner and the other paper to the bottom right hand corner. Around the middle I have stuck a piece of pretty white and pink spotted ribbon.

To finish of I have created two flowers with some of the papers from Nitwits, and my Retro flower punches, Ive moulded them with my ball tool and put a pearl brad through the centre of them. I then punched out some fern leaves with my Martha Stewart leaf punch and arranged them in some silicone glue before sticking the two flowers on top.
