This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Red, Yellow and Blue Loves Me Tilda

Here is my entry to this week's Just Magnolia blog challenge, which this week is a sketch challenge by Bev.

The Loves Me Tilda image was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink, coloured using Copic markers and cut out.
  • Hair: E21, E35, E39
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51, R20
  • Top/Socks: Y00, Y08, E41
  • Shoes: B41, B93, E04, E07, R24, YR02
  • Dungarees: B41, B45, B93
  • Flowers: E04, E07, E41, R24, YR02, Y08
A panel was cut from white card and the Magnolia Old Wooden Stand image was stamped using Versafine Vintage Sepia archival pigment ink and coloured using Copic markers.
  • Fence: E21, E35, E39, E43
A sky was coloured also using a blue Copic marker and the blender pen. This was matted onto a panel cut from blue Core'dinations card using a Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities die.

The card was then constructed to match the sketch supplied by Bev for the challenge:

A strip of the Surprise paper from the Basic Grey Cupcake paper pad was matted onto a strip of the Kazoo Blue paper from the same paper pad punched using the Scallop Dot border punch from Martha Stewart. This was matted onto a panel of the Streamers paper which was in turn matted onto the blue card.

The Tilda image was matted onto the background panel and two holes were punched and red stitched organza ribbon from the Chatterbox Scarlet Ribbon pack was threaded through them.

The circle greeting sentiment from Aud Designs was stamped using the Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with the Copic markers, cut out with Nestabilities and matted onto blue card.

Three white Papermania Imaginisce paper flowers were stamped in the centres using the circle stamp from the Aud Designs circle sentiments set using ColorBox Warm Red and Burnt Sienna fluid chalk inks. The same inks were used to colour the petal tips.

The sentiment panel was added to the card front to overlap the image and the flowers to the right. Anita's 3D Gloss was added over the flower and petals in the Tilda image, over the sentiment and in the flower centres.
