Just Magnolia GDT

This is my first week as Guest DT for Just Magnolia and a fabulous start with this fantastic sketch by Jane

I chose this cute little Tilda from the Winter collection - she's definitely my favourite. I stamped her, cut her out using a Nellie Snellon rectange die, masked her and then inked the corners with with Walnut stain and stamped two opposite corners with an ancient corner stamp of unknown origin.  I then coloured her with distress inks - list at the bottom of the post.

The paper are a download  (I can't tell you who by as this information is in my computer at home) and I stamped the corners of the blue spotted one with the same corner stamp I used for the image. The sentiment is by WOJ and if I stamped it once I stamped it a dozen times. I wasn't happy with any of them until I hit on the idea of stamping it on some ribbon which seemed to blend with the rest of the card better.
The embellishments are all from my stash.

Inks used
 Skin  - Tattered Rose & Vintage Photo
Dress & Socks  -  Faded jeans & Weathered wood.
Hair and Shoes  -  Mustard Seed & Walnut stain
(This must be a first for me - using so few colours)

This post has taken me forever to do - I can't get on with the settings on my daughter's computer but she'd kill me if I altered them.

Tomorrow I'm off to meet up with my Basic Grey teamies down at the NEC, I do hope I bump into any of you who are there - if you spot me please, please say Hello, I'd love to meet you.
