Hi everyone I got inspired this weekend by the new edition of Magnolia Ink Mag. Just wish I could afford all the nice stamps they do. This card is for my mum as it is her birthday next month. I shall also be putting this project in at http://sirstampalotchallenge.blogspot.com/ and at http://justmagnolia.blogspot.com/
It would be nice to win something, but hey its still fun to create.
Stamps; Tilda with puppy and rustic bench, Magnolia greeting, flower and leaf stamps
Inks; Versa fine sepia, and regular versa inks, Promarkers, Copics and gel pens.
Papers; K&CO, cardstock
Punches; 3 different size daisy punches, Martha Stewart fence and leaf twig.
Circle cut out using a Fiskers circle shape cutter.
The instructions for making the card was not very clear but I think I managed it OK. I used K & Co for the paper's, I cut the butterfly's out of the paper, and I punched the flowers from the paper too, the fence is a punch from Martha Stewart also the twig leave thingies. Its a kind of box card that does not open up, the back is decorated with the same papers with the greeting on top. Mum has 2 dogs so that made it easy to pick which stamp, Tilda with a puppy.I stamped the edge of the circle with some flower and leaf stamps also at the base of the fence, I used my chalks for the background of Tilda so as to cover the whiteness. I used some gems on the centre of the flowers I made and on the tag. I coloured Tilda with promarkers and some of the copics that I have, but I think I should have stuck to one kind, someone said you could mix the two but I am not so sure. If you look close enough you can see a side view of a butterfly to the left of Tilda
