Just Magnolia and Die-ing for a Challenge

It’s Just Magnolia and Die-ing for a Challenge day today (naughty me combining challenges but needs must).  We are being sponsored by Jacobi nl at Just Magnolia and by Dies to Die For over at Die-ing for a Challenge. Jacque has done us a fab sketch to follow on JM, and we have a really easy challenge on DFAC – anything goes with dies.

I have been playing with my Distress Ink Markers and can now say I think I like them (so contrary).  They took a bit getting used to after colouring with Copics for so long and I have a fair bit to learn all over again but they ain’t going to beat me lol.  So here’s me first distress markers card that didn’t land in the bin.

A close up of the image Tilda catching stars – don’t look too close lol!  These markers are a dream to use, especially as all I needed was my old water-brush to blend the colour that I had laid down with the markers.

The gorgeous papers are Wild Rose Letters from Paris paper pack. I enjoyed making this card so much I got totally carried away with decorating the inside. The sentiment is Anna Griffin from QVC.  The die cuts are Do Hickey and Spellbinders on the inside and on the front I used one of the new Go Kreate doily dies that were released this week, this one is Spiral #3. The sentiment is from the  Whimsy Fanciful Birthday Notables 1 set.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used Large Wild Rose 40mm, cottage roses, tulips, 15mm roses, 10mm roses.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend, I will be back bright and early tomorrow with a new WOC surprise candy and later tonight with the winner of my LOTV blog hop prize.

    very pretty card, you have certainly mastered the markers. The jury is out on these markers,(whether I buy them or not), as I have spent a small fortune on Copic's.

  57. Hi Bev~

    This card is above amazing and stunning! I can't think of a word for it! I look at her and I think she is throwing the stars with her dreams out into the Universe to be put into action!

    Your coloring is amazing! The grass is super good. I wish you would put it on a list to teach us. These distress markers--are they a certain brand? How do they look distressed?

    I love how you put flowers together...you use the big ones, too! And, the inside is for a princess! Maybe that's what I see a princess in charge of dreams scattering them out over the Universe! Such an imagination! LOL

    He IS Able!
