New Challenge - Marvelous Magnolia - Tilda with Snow Skis

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a lovely weekend, I had a fabulous  girly shopping trip with the girls from work on Saturday, it was really a lovely day out. Sadly I didn't have much chance to do any crafting this weekend as I was trying to get presents etc sorted for Christmas, it's amazing how long it all takes, but thankfully I'm nearly done now.

Today, we have a new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia and our challenge is 'Anything Goes Christmas.

I have coloured up one of last years Christmas Maggies, called Tilda with Snow Skis and masked her with Old Swedish Church. 

The circle die peeping out from the top, on the edge icicle and the ice crystal on the right hand side are Joy dies from Noor Design U.K., the snowflake banner is a Lala Lands die and the poinsettia is a Marianne die. I coloured the image using DI reinkers and added some frantage for the falling snow, glamour dust for the lying snow and covering the snowflake banner. The poinsettia die has had some twinklets sprinkled around the petals. Around the image is some lovely pom pom trim from the Ribbon Girl.

The flowers, ribbon, lace, charm and rhinestone sparklers are from my stash.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Hat, Scarf and Gloves: Barn Door, Aged Mahogany
Top and Trousers: Hickory Smoke
Church: Hickory Smoke, Weathered Wood

That's it from me today.

Thank you so much for popping in.

Take care.
