Just Magnolia GDT

This week the challenge at Just Magnolia is “Punch it out” so get out your punches and your Magnolia stamps and get creative. Don’t forget that you can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice as long as the main image on your creation is a Magnolia stamp you will qualify to be in the draw for the fab prize. The winner will be chosen by Random Generator next week so to be in the running all you need to do is ensure you have at least one Magnolia image on your card and link your card (not your blog) in Mr Linky and have your card posted by 8pm UK time next Thursday 15th April.

Our sponsor this week is Jacobi Drachten and the fabulous prize they have sponsored is a Magnolia Ink magazine, five rubber stamps, Ranger Cut and Dry foam and card for Copics/ProMarkers.

I used the absolutely adorable 'Princess Tilda', coloured with Copics (list below) and glittered her petticoat, socks, gloves using Stardust stickles. I dotted liquid pearls on the Tiara and then scattered them with glitter to give it some dimension, sadly I couldn't photograph this as the light was so poor here yesterday. I used Basic Grey flourish stamp around the edge of the image and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, afterwhich I inked the edges with distress inks. The paper is once again of unknown origin - some idiot cut the label off again - who could that be I wonder ???  The border edges are cut with the MS lattice punch and the flowers with a combination of EK Success retro flower and Nellie Snellon punch and emboss flowers punches, the edges glittered - of course!!. The gauze bow behind the flowers is a wire mesh from the Ribbon Box which is great fun and can be pulled in all manner of shapes. The wired glass beads are Magnolia and the pearls and ribbon are from stash.

Copics used
Hair  -  Y0000   E71   E77  W1
Skin  -  YR0000  E00  E02  R20
Dress  -  BV0000  BV00  BV02  BV04  BV23

Check out the DT's fabulous inspiration and then get punching!!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend
Heather xx
