More Magnolia's

Hello All,

I mentioned in an earlier post this week that I only owned one Magnolia stamp...well in all honesty I have not always been that fond of them..which was quite a relief as there is always so many lovely things in the craft world that I am tempted by...however a very lovely bloggy friend of mine sent me some stamped images to play with..and now I am hooked, I love them, and I have been a tad naughty I was having a fed up kind of a day, and went shopping on tinternet and bought myself some of these sweeties.....(well I couldn't leave the one I have all alone now, could I?)..they arrived today and I have enjoyed having a play.....I also have some of the fairytale ones on pre order....what am I like!!

Anyway onto my card, I have coloured her in using copics and have used paper from the "basic grey - sultry collection"...The paper button and corner are also part of the basic grey pack..the flowers are from "Prima"...and of course gems and stickles.

This is my entry for:

Stamp Something - Pink Somethings
Everybody Art Challenge - Spring
Crafty Card Makers - Spring into spring
Fab and Funky - Spring is in the air
Papertake Weekly - Fill your boots (an open theme)

Thanks for looking, have a good weekend
Hugs Juls

  4. Hi Juls,
    This card is beautifully done in fabulous colours. I love the papers and Tilda is so well done - she is gorgeous.

  12. This is so cute Juls. I have to admit I am not a big fan of Tilda's although I love to see the cards people make using them. I think they remind me of Moomin's (the TV programme!).

    Have a great Easter.

  16. This is gorgeous - and I know what you mean about getting addicted. I resisted for ages and then gave in but I only have a few. I would love loads of them though as they are so sweet. You have coloured this one perfectly and that soft pink bp is lovely.

  24. This is gorgeous Juls. I love Tilda too! I never used to either and as you say it is a bit of a relief to not like something. But of course now I have loads. In fact I went into Stampaholics in Perth on Saturday and came out with 2 more!

  25. Aha!! That's how I got started on the mags, in fact that's how I got started on images!! Didn't even know they existed till a friend sent me some. Still love the mags as they are so easy to colour, I am sure you will have fun with them. This is a gorgeous card, love the pinks and greens together. See, you don't hear from me for ages, then you can't shut me up!
