Tilda in Spring Rain

Hello dear crafters!

I am back with to share with you a Magnolia card which reflects the rainy weather we had for the last couple of days here! Today the sun has come out again, but we had some serious dull and wet weather which I REALLY love!! :)

Here is Tilda in Spring Rain from the 2009 Chasing Butterflies Colection. I opted for soft Copic colouring this time, and kept it as clean as possible - for me it IS very clean! lol

Remember that at Magnolia-licious you can still find some cute stamps from the older collections, and if you are looking for something specific, do not hesitate to use the email provided, or the FB business page (found here) to contact Shawn - I am sure he will do anything to help you get your goodies!

For this card I used a cute Sugar Pea Sentiment, which I really love. I also used a couple of dies from the Doo Hickey Vol.10 set - I love dies, you can use them in very different ways. If you'd like some for yourself - you know... Christmas is coming... you can also check the Store - there are a lot of lovely things for whatever is anyone's tastes! The cute large butterfly was a gift from my dear friend Suzi (thank you sweet!) and I also added some lightly coloured dew drops, as if they are drops of water. There is a lot of dimension going on, you can see that in the next photo.

I wish I had some glossy accent to put on Tilda's raincoat, umbrella and boots, but the one I had from quite long ago (it was called Crystal Lacquer) has become too thick to control properly. 

I hope you have a wonderful day, and that you have a lot of reason to smile and be happy! Advent is now around the corner and we'll soon be seeing a lot of Christmas goodies around!

Tilda is prepared for Christmas

She's a busy girl indeed! Yes, I'm talking about Tilda - this cutie is already prepared for giving this beautiful gift to her bestie - and she's ready to go and give it to her even if it has snowed! 😊

Alright - apart from the story I created from this card -  we at Magnolia-licious are presenting a brand new challenge for the month of November - This is challenge #15 - and this time we have an Anything Goes challenge with the option of Christmas.

Go and check the cute cards made by the wonderful Teamies, and check out the awesome Gift card ready for one of you if you join us again in the fun!

This time I went for some blues, browns and lots of shimmer for my card. I actually like how this turned out, with some snowy hills and couple of reindeers passing by! :)

Tilda is coloured with Distress inks, and I fussy cut her to add dimension to the scene, using near and far perspective.

 As for embellishments I added some small ponsiettas and some other coordinating flowers with some pearls as centres. I also added some cheese cloth and a doily behind the scene, and a "let ti snow" sentiment on top of a chipboard tree - which is also dressed with gesso, and some glitter for a shimmery effect. Some lace on the card was a must, so I just went with it as I LOVE lace.

I hope you liked the card, and that you come and join us. Do let others know about the Challenge blog, and about the awesome products Shawn has in his Store for all of you to play with! There are some more awesome Foamiran Starter packs for those who would like to try foamiran in small batches at first. Check them out HERE
