Magnolia Down Under Guest Design Spot & some more Magnolia Candy

Hello Magnolia fans!

A few months ago, the lovely Kellie asked me if I'd like to guest design for Magnolia Down Under for the month of May - so here I am.

This week they have a fabulous Sponsor - Tracey from Spesch Designer Stamps. Tracey is offering either three of the gorgeous Digital Stamps or a Clear Polymer Stamp of Bonnie. Check out the Spesch Blog to find out more about the stamps.

This is the sketch this week, designed by the fabulous Kellie.

I fretted about it at first as I was so stuck for what to do. Then I got my thinking cap on and came up with this:

I've used K&Co papers from Ancestry, gems, ribbon, charm and sentiment from stash
The fabulous leaf and the paper in the back ground which is text are from Mummylade (Helene). I won them in one of her Candy-Give-Aways, and I've only just got round to using them. The paper is ancient - well 1936 I think it said on the top. I almost didn't want to use it. It was so delicate and easily ripped.
I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks, mainly using Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain and a tiny bit of Black Soot
Thank you so much Kellie for allowing to guest design for you for the month of May.


To celebrate this month GDT spot. I'm offering one lucky crafter the chance to win this Brand New Stamp which I bought from Magnolia Down Under store which is now Tickled Pink Stamps
Lady Bug Tilda

All you have to do is leave your name and blog with Mr Linky and leave me a comment to tell me which is your favourite Magnolia Stamp!
If you can play along with MDU that would be an added bonus!
I'l draw the winner on the 8th of May ready for my next MDU challenge GDT post
Good Luck

My favourite Magnolia at the moment is Tilda with Flowing Hair, but this will probably change next week and then again the week after that, they are all so cute it's hard to stick to one favourite for long LOL!!!

Congrats on the GDT too.

This card is stunning Kimmi - i don't know how you managed to rip that paper though - i'd have been a nervous wreck with something that old!
