New challenge at LHOSM - Watering Tilda and Vintage Orangeri

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a lovely weekend and enjoying a bit of crafty time.

Today we have a new challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia and  as the weather is (was lol) warming up our challenge this time is Summer.

For a change I have made a tent shaped card and stamped up two of my new Maggies to create the scene. This is Watering Tilda and Vintage Orangeri.

I have coloured the scene using DI reinkers and sprinkled some Shabby White frantage around the outside of the image.

The papers are by Maja from the Summer Vintage collection and they have been distressed around the edges using a Tim Holtz paper distresser.

The pretty edges around the outside of the card have been cut in coordinating papers using a Martha Stewart punch.

The spade, broom and flower pots are from the Spring Garden set of Joy dies and the gorgeous embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl.

Links to the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the link.

DI colour list:
Skin:Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Grand Espresso, Gathere Twigs
Dungarees: Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar
Blouse: Gathered Twigs, Old Paper
Shoes: Hickory Smoke
Orangeri: Hickory Smoke, Victorian Velvet. Shabby Shutters, Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar
Hosepipe and Grass: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters
