Hi all & today it's time for another Marvelous Magnolia challenge. This week we'd love to see you 'Pearls & Lace' creations. As most of you are allready aware, we are operation a 3 tier entry system and this has had loads of positive feedback and been working really well to give all levels of crafters from beginner to expert a chance at being chosen or Top Spots. However there are some entries that are being put in the beginner category who arn't classed as beginner. The categories work of how many Magnolia challenges you have won in the past. Only those with less than 3 Magnolia challenge wins are beginners. We know it's just an over sight & appreciate how long it takes entering your creations into challenges - but if you do want to be eligable for the prize & Top Spots, then please ensure you enter into the correct category, just scroll down a little further & you'll find intermediate & advanced categories. Many Thanks for your continued support of this system.x
Anyhow onto my card. I made my second card with my new Once Upon a Time stamps, using 'Tilda Longstocking'...how cute is this one?!!
Papers are the new Vintage Spring collection by Maja Design, card has been made using Go Kreate Frilly Frame #5 die. Edges have been inked in Antique Linen using a blending tool.
I added Blue Frantage embossing powder around the image and set with a heat tool. Image has been coloured with Distress Inks and highlighted with Crystal Glamour Dust & white pen.
I made the key hole with Tim Holtz Alterations Hardware Findings die from grungeboard, then applied Snowtex to add texture. The sentiment is by LOTV, postmark by HOTP mini Paris collection. I finished by adding 3 vintage buttons.
Rolled roses and other flowers & berries by Kort & Godt, white spray from Live & Love Crafts.
Notice the cute little birdhouse charm! The swirl die a Doo Hickey as in the Lovely Fence (above) and Vintage tags (below), the sentiment is Tim Holtz from the Urban Chic collection.
