Hot and Spicy - Just Magnolia Challenge
Hello everyone - I am so excited about this blog - you have no idea! - it is really motivating me to make cards and the challenges are just what I need. Today I am playing along with the Just Magnolia Friday Challenge - Hot and Spicy. This is only my second ever challenge but I love that they do challenge my creativity and also help me to ink up some of my older stamps that I may not ever use anymore. I thought for a moment or two and remembered my swimsuit Tilda (it has been a very long time since she has seen ink). I combined some of my new Basic Grey paper and voila!! - I hope I have interpreted "hot and spicy" with the makings of this card. I used the Magnolia Bridge Deck (what she is sitting on) and added a few Magnolia butterflies and sentiment. The water is punched using Stampin Up ovals and then I added Tim Holtz faded jeans to deepen the blue - I also did the same with the background blue of the sentiment. I free hand cut out the side (weeds) and added a few small flowers and curled some wire for a final touch. The copics I used were ROOO, ROO, RO2, YOO, YO8, Y11, Y14, Y21, Y26. I just want to thank you so much for stopping by and visiting my blog - I really do appreciate it and your comments so far have been so wonderful - thank-you! This is turning out to be a very good journey so far!
