Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge

Although it’s a bank holiday weekend we thought we would still run with the weekly Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge and this week we have an awesome sketch by the uber talented Dena.  Thanks sweets, loved working with it, just my kind of sketch :)

My delivery of new Bo Bunny goodies arrived yesterday from Charmed Cards and Crafts and I just had to use the new stash.  OMW the new Gabrielle and Timepiece collections are just sublime (links at the bottom of the post).  And this time I have the trinkets to go with the papers, they are just fab!  I went a bit overboard with them on my card today but couldn’t stop lol.  Just peeking out at the top and bottom of the card is the starburst border that was punched with my new Martha Stewart punch set that was on HSN a couple of weeks back as a TSV (is that what it is called in the US?) and was so kindly sent to me by my little angel that lives across the pond.  This lady spoils me rotten, thanks sweetie xxxxx


The cameo and bronze butterfly are from the Gabrielle Trinkets.  I am def going to be using these lots – they make a special card just that bit extra special I think.  A close up of that gorge cameo.  Love it!


Tilda has been coloured with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils:
Hair: E25, E23, E50
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20, R30
Dress, butterflies, shoes: BG3, BG1, BG0, 0
Shading around Tilda: E000, E0000, 0
Ground shadow: W5, W2, W1


A close up of the white baby’s breath flowers after I had pulled them to bits (as I do!).   I snipped the wire off the end, pulled the pearl stamens out so I could squish the flower up to fit in under the roses then used the waste pearl stamens in the arrangement. 


I will list this card later in my eBay shop.

Whatever your plans I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend and a happy and peaceful Easter.
