Simply Magnolia - Anything Goes

Hi everyone,

Its midway reminder over at Simply Magnolia - Anything Goes Challenge!

I decided that Miss Tilda would love to be in Paris blowing Edwin kisses from the Eiffel Tower.


I have had great success colouring "Miss you Tilda" from Magnolia "In Love Collection" with Distress Inks.
 I think for the first time I have found (by accident) a water colour paper (Eraldo di Paolo Field Pad, I've had for ages from when I used to paint) that responds to the inks and my Tilda is beginning to look like I know what I'm doing lol... at last!

Until next time, happy crafting

Hi everyone,

I am a tad nervous showing my first card for LHOSM Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge blog.

As a brand new DT member here is my first card showing Cupid Angel Tilda from the new 
Magnolia  In Love collection.  

I've used Distressed Inks on Pastel water colour paper, as the paper has a creamy look I have teamed it with, 

Lemon craft House of Roses DPs
Kraft card
Kaiser craft Ivory Ribbon Roses
Magnolia Leaf & Swirl
Kaiser craft Flowers
Lace from my stash
White Sequins

The flowers & around the edges of the card I touched with texture paste.

until next time, take care..
