New Challange Marvelous Magnolia - Lovely Lace

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you all well and yay it’s nearly the weekend!!

Today we have of first challenge of the year at Marvelous Magnolia and it’s one of my favourites ‘Lovely Lace’. We are also having a DT call which the existing DT are also entering if they would like to continue,  so if you would like to enter just put DT after your name when you  post your creation.

As from this week, the challenge is changing to a two week format which will give you lots more time to make your wonderful creations and an added bonus of being in with a chance of winning more prizes.

We have three sponsors this week: 

Welcome to the Ribbon Girl - to help your craft budget go further we always sell our buttons, flowers, diamantes, pearls, flatbacks, crystal stems, charms and embellishments in small quantities so you can mix and match with more choice! Seam binding is sold in 5 metre bundles. Divine Bakers Twine and button twine in 10 metre bundles. All of our beautiful ribbon and lace is sold by the metre and when you need more than one, we supply in a continuous length whenever possible.

I couldn’t resist inking up Summer Wedding Tilda, I just adore her hair! As always I have used Copics and a hint of Prisma Pencils to colour her. The gorgeous frame I made using a Martha Stewart Silicone Mould and Air Dry Clay. The papers are by Maja. The leaves are cut from a Cheery Lynn die and the branch is a Marianne die. All the flowers, lace, ribbon and pretty embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl. For a full list of the materials used, please click on the picture below which will take you directly to the item.

Copics I used:

Skin: E21, 00, 000, R20
Hair: E44, 42, 41, 40, 50, E000
Dress & Boots: R85, 83, 81, RV000
