Hello ladies and gents,
there's one or two gents out there, I've spotted them!!
Tonight I will share with you my
Magnolia Down Under Challenge project
that I've been putting off doing because, well,
I want to use some of the new images, d*@$it!!
So I thought, I will wait it out and hope
I can get my grubby mitts on them before
this project needs to be turned in.
Nope, that did not happen,
so a series of failed plastic attempts took place
before going back to my one true love: PAPER
with a stamped image that my dear blogging buddy
and fellow MDUC teamie Sue sent me,
thanks for saving the day Sue!!
And Kellie, thanks for letting me be a slack,
I am sorry it has taken so long to turn in my project,
your leniancy has allowed my project to flourish though ;)
So this is my decorative ornament card.
It could be a wall hanging or an ornament,
or just a card, it's up to the recipient.
And here is the inside of the project,
this lovely scene with Tilda and Edwin.
Look at that crumply bow,
I am having to fight back
the urge to retake the picture!!!
I've done a lot with this, so I want to just
hit the main points so as not to be taunted for waffling, lol.
The paper is Websters Pages, so so gorgeous,
it pains me to cut into them,
coloured in distress inks with lots of Stickles
and glimmer mist on Tilda's coat,
lots of assistance from the white Sakura gel pen.
Some "ghost" snowflakes are stamped on here with
StazOn opaque, stamps are Stampabilities,
and I doused them with some MS glitter,
which is rubbing off the flakes with every second.
The charm is by Jolees and that hook is beading wire
with a few beads for good measure.
Tea roses and mini rose buds are clustered on top of
several different MS punches, fern, oak leaf and branch,
with several different treatments on them,
distressing, stickles, glimmer mist, etc....
And here is the inside which will contain the sentiment,
and is still under works, nothing's been patched up or
smoothed down on it yet, I need a break, lol.
And yes, that is the backside of the DP,
just as gorgeous as the face.
Now let's talk challenges.
I have used the sketch from The Pink Elephant
Roses On Paper would like us to create
a romantic card in respects to the flick Sweet November.
Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential
has asked to see ornaments, so I get to play over there.
Aww, the benefits of being late, haha.
