Just Magnolia 28 & Magnolia Down Under!

Over at Just Magnolia this week, they have a fabulous Sketch by Martine.

And over at Magnolia Down Under, the fabulous DT team have set the challenge to useDistressing!

I've been feeling a little guilty as I've had the Fall kit for some time now, plus some extras I bought which I liked from the set and I've NEVER inked them up until now! How bad is that... Since the fall kit came out, Magnolia have released the Spooky set and I believe the Christmas set is currently on Pre-Order!!

So I got this little cutie out and stamped her on some thick white card, and coloured her with Copics... I started colouring her pinny first in the yellows and for the life of me couldn't decide what other colour to use. It was going to be Purple, but - I'm pleased I went with Green!

I distressed the oval and also the yellow patterned paper, then inked both with Green Memento Ink.

Here is a little close up of Gorgeous Tilda!
(Apologies for the oval - its hand cut and not the best - MUST get me some more Nestabilities!)


Stamps: Tilda Pickin' Peaches and Recipe Card from Magnolia, Sentiment from WoJ.
Paper: Patterned paper from stash, Green and Yellow card from Core'dinations.
Embellies: Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Lace and Ribbon from Stash.

(I will be finishing the inside off with Peachy Tilda (the one with the leaves floating around her [raining leaves if you know what I mean] from the Yummy Tummy collection, so that the Sentiment on the front makes a little more sense!!)

********** UPDATE *********

Have just found a little more MoJo and finished doing the inside...

Doesnt look too bad for a first Easel type card!

Little Close up!

How the inside looks.

Thanks again for looking xx
