Get in Shape - Magnolia vs Stampavie Challenge

The challenge this week is to get in shape (I wish lol) - made a shaped card or project -- no squares or rectangles. The DT have come up with some beauties this week so I hope you will go take a peek.

This week had me stumped (says she who loves round cards as I always seem to resort to doing them when faced with a shaped card - very much in my comfort zone lol) so a tried something different, but the round is still there. I used a dinner plate to get the 1/4 circle shape, punched out lots of 3/4" circles and used these to make the scallop along the edge of the card. I've just realised I didn't use a single flower, spacer or charm - I must be ill lol!!!
magnolia-tilda-shape-chall3The inside, I used some more of the delish Bo Bunny papers that Jill sent me to play with. I stamped a border of butterflies from the Magnolia Spring Club Kit along the curve - then on the very last one went and got a blob of black ink ARGH!! Hence the crystals - phew it hid the mess!! The heart is punched with a 3" Woodware heart punch (cos I don't have any heart nesties - this must be the only nesties I don't have, best remedy that at Harrogate next week lol) and stamped out some of the butterflies from the kit which I raised with a blob of silicone glue to give a bit of dimension

A close up of the butterfly on the front of the card, also raised with some silicone.

Colouring medium: Distress inks and H2O's

  6. Another beauty. Fabulous colours and papers and I just love the shape (inspirational) and the sweet little butterfly & bee.
    I suspect you'll soon be better and your next creations will have it'd usual quota of brads, spacers, flowers and charms (lol).

  70. Your unique card and image are stunning Bev!
    It's funny because I also made a card using the same image. I guess great minds think alike...lol!
    On a serious note, I had a problem with the image(s) in Tilda's hand. I didn't know if it was a mushroom next to a bumble bee or what! I guess in the end, it really doesn't matter much.
    Thanks for sharing and have a great day!
    hugs
