Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge.

We have an Autumn and/or back to school theme for our challenge on Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge.  Autumnal colours are not something I use so I struggled with this one a bit.  You would not believe the mess in this craft room – I had piles of papers and paper pads everywhere trying to find something that would work lol – looked like a whirling dervish had struck (again lol).  Anyway, thank goodness for My Minds Eye paper pads, especially all the new ones that I just had to get from Dies to Die For a couple of weeks ago.  Totally yummy.  The paper pad I used for today’s card is Lost and Found Rosy, love it!

I used a Marianne Design Creatables Circles die instead of nesties for a change, love how it worked so well with little Tilda (wot a gorgeous friend sent me, thanks sweets mwah xxx).   The leaves in the flower arrangement are also a Marianne Designs die, Flower and Leaves.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts – I used hydrangeas15mm roses, 6mm rose buds, Curly Wild Rose.  The pins are also from WOC.  The gold pearls I have had for years, can’t even remember where I got them from, sorry.

I used Copics and prismacolor pencils to colour Tilda
Skin: E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E25, E23, E50
Lace and shoes: E42, E41, E40
Jump suit: YR18, YR02, YR00, YR0000 and a light red pencil

Have a fabulous weekend, I am going to be working on some magazine commissions (and maybe interfering downstairs as all the cupboards are going in this weekend whoop whoop whoop!!!!)

  11. Hi Bev
    you have made a lovely card (as usual), not the colours that I would use (so I can fully understand why you struggled with using them), I think it's got something to do with autumn colours reminding us that winter is just around the corner lol, love the die that Tilda is sitting on.
