It’s that time again where my group shares our creations on The Official Magnolia Inspriation Challenge Blog! This week we are playing with the Magnolia Animal stamps and also asking you to incorporate Magnolia Designer paper in your creations.
I admit I don’t have very many animal stamps sand don’t really think to use the ones I have that often, so it was a good opportunity to pull out what I do have an think up a scene!
I made this scene using 4 different stamps and I masked each step of the way before stamping my next stamp.
I started with ‘Small Butterfly‘ – Butterfly Dreams collection – , then I stamped Petals & Palings Fence from Make it Crafty, then I stamped ‘Tilda in Summer Rain‘ – Sweet Rainbow Collection – but before stamping her I wiped the ink off the rain drops so she was using the umbrella to protect her from the sun (not rain) – then finally I stamped the background – Butterfly Background – Butterfly Dreams Collection.
I always fall to pieces when it comes to making the card especially when my card will be placed beside the gorgeous creations the Magnolia Team create. I don’t know why, it just freaks me out and I go into a tizz!! hehe
So I ended up spending longer trying to make my card look pretty than the actual time it took to colour the image! haha I kept going back to it to see if I could stuff anything else on there! haha serious!!
The gorgeous pink background paper is Fairy Tale Pink Rose from “Once Upon a Time” collection and the blue DP is Blue Foliage from “Sweet Rainbow” collection. I had originally tried to use a light purple DP for the background however it wasn’t offering enough contrast with the brightness of the image I had coloured.
I added some fancy lace from Webster’s Pages, doily, flowers, hat pins, leaves, lots of glitter around the edges, stickles on the flowers and charm.
I painted the flower leaf swirls chipboard with distressed white paint and then coated them in glitter and the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.
I think I ended up with more glitter on my table than on the card somehow!! haha
I used lots of colours in this image so I’ll just run through the main ones (no chance of me remembering all the greens I used!! just mix em up! lol)
Skin: E000, E21, E11, E13 – R20 cheeks
Hair: Y11, Y13, Y17 (to help the sun not look so bold!!)
Purple: V000, V01, V06
Turquoise: G000, G00, BG13 & BG49 – I had run out of BG10 and substituted with G000 & G00 – worked well I thought!
Sky: B000 & B00 -
Refilled just prior so they were nice and juicy – I used the broad end to lay down the bulk of the colour.
Shading was achieved with the warm grays
So pull out your animal stamps and magnolia DP and come join us this week at TOMIC!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
