Marvelous Magnolia Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas day and got everything you wished for, maybe one or two crafting goodies?? Phil and I had a quiet day on our own, but it was still a lovely day and I was thoroughly spoilt. I am so looking forward to today as our sons and their girlfriends are spending the day with us and it will be a lively affair!!

Anyway enough rambling from me, here is my inspirational card for the Marvelous Magnolia challenge which is running for a total of 3 weeks, so there is plenty of time to get your card made. The theme is the ever popular ‘Anything Goes’. Our sponsor this time is Hobbycutz

I opted to make a card using an oldie ‘Tilda with Peony’. I have coloured her with Copics in grey tones and added just a hint of Black Primsa pencil. I can’t still put the Frantage away and sprinkled it over most of the die cuts. The dies I have used are Heartfelt Creations Layered Elegant Swirl die, Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco, the leaves are a Crealies die and the last one is a Magnolia DooHickey Heart Swirl. The little butterfly I made using a Martha Stewart mould and clay, I bought these at the NEC in November and this is the first chance I have had to use them, it was great fun and so easy.

Copics I used:
Skin: T4, 2, 0
Hair: 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 0
Clothes & Peony: T6, 4, 2, 0
Background: T6, 4, 2, 0

Pencil: Black

My teamies have made some lovely creations so if you get a chance, pop over and take a peek.

I hope you all have a lovely day, and thank you for popping in!

Take care,
