Magnolia Down Under Challenge #2
I am so excited. Finally I got my Magnolia stamps the other day. Yeah. But not a lot of time to use it. So last night was the night. The Magnolia Down Under Challenge was on.
I started with Edwin and coloured him in. Then it was Tilda's turn. After that I was stuck. I new that I wanted something brilliant for my first card, but just couldn't think of anything. With alot of thinking and creating I came up with my first beautiful little Tilda card.
I used the new Pink Pirouette CS and a Bashful blue cuttle bug background. I cuttle bugged a garden green flower and cut it out. Adding a yellow misc button from my stash. So for the ribbon challenge, I had to add 5 different ribbons. But once I added one, the card just looked finished to me and I didn't want to add any more. So on to my next card I went.
Once again racking my brain for inspiration I came up with my first ever Edwin card. I have to thank the lady from the Magnolia online shop, as she sent me these stone steps for free. Wasn't that nice of her. I know I will be defiantly going back for more. So I started off with the new in colour Pacific Point, with really rust CS. Creamy caramel textured paper. But the exciting thing is the ribbon challenge. I used choc chip wide double stitch and choc chip taffata for my road. Creamy caramel gingham for my door frame, Kraft taffata for my house and a very small basic gray taffata for my door knob. Yeah I did it. My first Magnolia Down Under Challenge.
Thanks for looking.
