Happy Hump Day, Friends! I am so glad to see you all at the Midweek Magnolias Challenge Blog this morning. Our next challenge this fortnight is a personal favorite of mine…
“Anything but a Card”
I love creating paper crafted items that I can give away as gifts. This is a “box in a bag" and I’ve had it on my “to make” list for some time now. There is a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and it is so easy to craft.
I used one of the new stamps from the “Magnolia Stamp Club.” She is not in the store yet so I don’t know her name. I can’t wait to see the entire collection. They remind me of the 60s “Flower Power” era. I will likely be adding more of these cuties to my collection once they reach the store.
I used some pretty Maja Design paper and a new die set. I created a paper lace trim at the bottom of my bag with my dies and added tiny flat back pearls for a delicate touch.
I colored Tilda with Copics; her dress is colored with one of my favorite BG color combos. I love the turquoise color hues of these markers.
Here’s a close up of Tilda. I am still a bit shaky with coloring since surgery and my wrist gets sore after long lengths of coloring time. So I am taking it slow but I’m making progress every day.
I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for the challenge. Have a great week.
Cath, she is just gorgeous! All my favorite tones and her hair is fabulous!
