Marvelous Magnolia #1 'Anything Goes'

Hi all today I am thrilled to be posting for a brand new Magnolia site called Marvelous Magnolia. It is a weekly challenge that starts today & will run each week on a Thursday. The design team is simply fabulous & there is a wealth of talent and beautiful creations waiting to inspire you, so don't forget to check out their individual blogs too.
The first challenge today is an Anything Goes, so why not enter your latest Magnolia creations? There is a wonderful prize from Magnolia-licious & Creative Treasures for one lucky winner chosen at rondom so what are you waiting for - we'd love for you to join us & we can't wait to see what you create.

I used my new 'Dancing with stars' Tilda from this years 'Little Christmas' collection & she's just gorgeous!!!
The beautiful papers are mainly Inkido and also some by Poin Design. I've coloured Tilda with Distress Inks as usual & then she's been highlighted with Crystal Glamour Dust & Viva Declor Pearl Pen 'Cream'.
Distress Inks:
Skin - Old Paper, Tattered Rose
Cheeks - Fired Brick
Hair - Old Paper, Antique Linen, Walnut Satin
Dress & tights - Spun Suger, Victorian Velvet
Trim & tights: Weathered Wood
Wings: Pumice Stone
Shading: Pumice Stone, Black Soot
The lovel sentiment stamp which I thought was just perfect for this little angel is by LOTV.
I have made above 2 little scrolls & below some butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch using some lovely manuscript paper. I have loads of this stuff from when I used to play piano & love to use it on my cards, I thought it complimented these papers by Inkido perfectly!
Doo Hickey Dies:
Lovely Fence
So Wrapped 'Lovely'
Heart Swirl
 Other Dies:
Marriane Design (the little kraft foliage leaves)
