DT-Magnolia Down Under gets charmed with Creative Inspirations!!

Hello there friends,
it is Wednesday and that means
we are hosting a new challenge over at
Creative Inspirations
which is to use CHARMS on your project!!

I've been itching to get my mitts into the wonderful kit that Kellie from Magnolia Down Under sent me to create with. The adorable stamps are from the Raising The Ceiling collection, all items used can be found in Kellies shop here, except for the charm, although Waffles is now stocking charms, do check them out!! She's got these cute little baseball caps that would be perfect for our darling Edwin creations!!

I've coloured in distress inks on watercolour paper and stamped the images onto regular CS, cut out a circular shape, shadowed the image in Faded Jeans and then placed the cut out watercoloured images in place. I covered the glass area of the honey jar in Diamond Glaze and Tildas wings are Stickled in Crystal. And apparently, I need to go back and colour the bee...

Thanks for stopping by and I just want to say thanks to all of you who are kind enough to stop by and leave me blog love in my most stressful times. I am missing so many fun challenges and fabulous inspiration from you all lately and while it bums me out, I know I will be able to return to blogging properly soon, so thanks for sticking it out with me, I appreciate it.
Take Care,

Beautiful Stephanne! I love the way you used the piece of lace trim! Your watercoloring is so gorgeous, it makes me want to toss my Copics and get back to water coloring - one of my favorite ways to color. Great work and thanks for the inspiration. Hope you are having a great week!
