What a fabulous response we had to our first challenge last week - thanks so much to all that entered xx. This week on Just Magnolia we have a colour challenge - Pink and Green, so anything goes as long as your creation is done with these colours and has a Magnolia image on. We have another fab prize up for grabs this week, and the winner will also be our Guest Designer for the month of May.
Okay - so I need more than a lie down in a dark room - I need therapy big time!! I used up sooooo much of my BG Porcelain papers, I was weak at the knees and sweating bullets!!! Take deep breaths Bev, slowly ... slowly ...
I love this colour combo, so much so I think I prefer it to Brown and Blue and that's saying something lol. I had some stamped and coloured roses left over from last weeks card that were begging to be used so I popped them on the inside of the card.
I went a little bit OTT on the inside, told you I need therapy! I made a little pouch to pop the tag/bookmark that I wanted to go with the card.
This card has been made for one amazing lady and I wanted a special sentiment inside to say just how much I value her friendship. The sentiments are computer generated, font is Duchesse (a freebie font download), and I stamped around the border with chalk inks and Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamps.
Another view of the card, these little roses add such depth and texture to the card I think.
Stamps: Magnolia - Tilda with bunch of roses, and Roses, Rubber Stamp Tapestry for the border on the tag
Colours - Distress inks: Tattered Rose (skin), Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint (clothes and flowers) - I also added a touch of Tombow green 192 to the green to lift it a bit, Brushed Corduroy/Vintage Photo (hair)
H2O's - Pink Anthirium, Wintermint, Fern (clothes and flowers), Chestnut Brown (hair)
Papers - Basic Grey Porcelain
Tools - Nestibilities, Stampin Up slit punch, Martha Stewart Branch Punch
Embellishments - Tulle (The Hobby House), Hydrangeas, Roses, Pearls
Thanks for looking,
