Christmas puppy



Hi everyone, hope you're having a nice evening. A Magnolia card to share today with the gorgeous Tilda with puppy and she's very sweet and a Tilda that can be used all year round which is lovely.

I've coloured with distress ink and watercolour markers and crayons and edged the image panel with gathered twigs distress ink which is my new favourite brown! I made an easel card and used a Tim Holtz baroque die for one of the layers under the image panel. The base card and mats are kraft card that I've stamped with a Magnolia Christmas song background stamp and sponged with DI. The patterned paper is Magnolia and all the edges have been distressed before adding it to the card. I've made a panel using the merry christmas sentiment as the easel stopper and this has been punched with an inverted corner punch to give a book place effect.
To decorate I've added lots of Magnolia DooHickey die cuts, star dust stickles glitter glue, paper flowers, faux stitching, doodling, pearl pen dots, seam binding ribbon and glitted die cut stars.

I'm entering my card into the Magnolia-licious challenge which is to 'add stickles or glitter', Cute Card Thursday's challenge of Starry, Starry night, Midweek Magnolia's challenge of 'oh Christmas tree', Marvellous Magnolia's challenge of 'traditional Christmas colours' and Tilda's Town's challenge of 'anything goes'.

OMG Chris!!!!! This is absolutely STUNNING!!!!! I LOVE your "doodling" (don't know what to call it, it just seems much more than doodling, just can't find a word good enough for it!) and your colouring is out of this world!!! Thanks for joining us this week at Marvelous Magnolia and we hope to see you again next challenge. Hugs, Brigitte

OH! la la!!! How totally MAGIQUE! we say in French. Your creation is just totally marvelous, that I could imagine a whole story about Tilda and her puppy, I could just put myself into your image, and feel what she is feeling and thinking about, her world actually. Chris, your creations have this power to bring me into another world, you put so much love and emotions when you color Tilda that it goes straight to my heart. I love your beautiful card, I am inspired by your stunning coloring talent. thank you for sharing with us, and give us the chance to be inspired! have a wonderful evening. Hugs from Montreal.

Oh Chris, she is beautiful and I love the style of card you did. I love how you enhance your Magnolias and make them front and center, a talent I have not mastered yet, working on it. I am getting the hang of your doodling, it is fun to do and enhances the image. She is just gorgeous I love your card!
