Magnolia Down Under - Guest Design Week 4!

Its my fourth week of guest designing for Magnolia Down Under and I'm so sad cos after this challenge I will only have one more to show you for next week and my Month of being a guest will be up. But, aaaah. Happy days and challenges these have been while I've been making cards and posting them for you!

So HUGE thank yous to Kellie and the girls at MDU!

This week, the Magnolia Down Under girls would like to see shaped cards. Circles, rectangles, diamonds, tents, side steppers – choice is yours!

I’ve gone for a Tent Card and even though I’ve had this Edwin since the start of the new year, I’ve never INKED him before now...SHOCKING!
Please forgive the funny bends in the card, I took the photo without letting it all dry, but now its all nice and straight looking, no wavy lines lol
 I used VersaFine Black Onyx to stamp him out and mask him with the swing, then coloured him with distress inks, used K&Co papers, added some raffia and some buttons. I didn’t put a sentiment on as I wasn’t sure what kinda occasion I was going to use him for. Turns out I have him on my shelf – Looking down on me – Keeping me company while he swings away happily!
Here is a little close up of him!

I am entering this card in to the following challenges

Stamp Something - Two of something. I used two magnolia images - Edwin and his Swing
ABC Challenge - Unused Stash - Well having not inked up Edwin counts!

Thanks for visiting. 
Please pop along to Magnolia Down Under and check out the fabulous work the team have come up with! Also – if you can – put a couple of hours aside and join in with the challenge! The girls would love to see your creations.
