Sugar Sweet

Hi everyone! I didn't manage to join in on our current 'back to school'  TOMIC challenge so I thought I'd show a project that I submitted for the current Chocolate issue of Magnolia Ink which didn't make it in. I was lucky enough to have other projects appear so that's great and it's nice to show it on the blog instead.

All the papers are from Magnolia so I'm not sure of the brands but I think one of them is Basic Grey Lime Rickey. I used two very sweet Tilda's and the sweets accessory stamp which I coloured with markers and all the tags and chipboard letters were covered with papers or painted. The sweets were coated with glossy accents and I added lots of star dust stickles and doodling with black and white pens elsewhere. The lovely lace flowers are also from Magnolia and I think I need to find out who makes them as they're very pretty :).

Well, have a good week and I hope you can join us on TOMIC this time.

TOMIC #12 - Recycling

Hi everyone! Our new challenge on TOMIC starts today and this week it's a special challenge as it's Magnolia Ink Magazine's birthday. There's a special prize waiting for the winner of this challenge so pop over to TOMIC to find our more, I hope you can join us :)
Our theme is recycling as Magnolia Ink is produced on recycled paper and I've recycled a gift box that contained bath goodies. The box was first painted and on the lid I glued tissued paper that I stamped with the Magnolia Roses stamp and red Archival ink. over the top of the paper I added some crackle glaze, more paint, stickles, texture paste, angel fibres, metallic paste and pearl pen pearls. I stamped the sweet Magnolia Chinese Tilda onto a tag cut from watercolour paper and coloured her with distress inks before gluing to the lid with some flowers, Magnolia Chandalier crystals, punched butterflies and ribbon.
Enjoy your day :).

Magnolia Garden Tilda

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. It's the start of a new challenge on TOMIC today and the challenge is about masking. I hope you'll pop over there to see the gorgeous examples of masking from my DT friends and a lovely tutorial from Camilla.

I stamped the sweet Magnolia Garden Tilda and the Old Oak Tree masked together to make the scene and Butterfly dreams paper for  the background.

Have a good day today and thank you as always for your lovely comments, I always appreciate them.

TOMIC Challenge # 9 - make a round card

Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed the weekend. A new challenge starts today on TOMIC and this week our theme is to make a round card. There's some wonderful inspiration from my design team friends, we hope you can join us and be in the with the chance of winning a gorgeous prize from Magnolia and being one of our top 5. 

I'v cut my round card from watercolour paper and continued my painted scene with Magnolia Explore Tilda right to the edge of the card where I've added a rainbow of eyelets all around the edge :). There's lots of stardust stickles and the 'wishing you rainbows..' sentiment which is now my favourite as it can be used for so many occasions. 

Have a lovely day today :)
