Just Magnolia #2- Pink & Green

Saturday, 25 April 2009
I know, I've been absent again!! I've had a really busy week back at work which has limited the amount of time I've had crafting. I was also having problems with my ink pad bleeding with my copics so was unable to colour any images until the lovely Stacey sent me her Memento Dew Drop ink pad for me to try out. Thank you hun!!

That was the main reason I was unable to take part in the first Just Magnolia challenge last week. However, I successfully managed to colour one of my Tilda's last night and (with a struggle) made a card this morning to fit this weeks theme of Pink and Green

My mojo appears to have deserted me a bit so I'm afraid it's a fairly simple card. The one aspect I was pleased with was the colouring. It felt like everything was working well. I've added a close up of Tilda. I hope you can see the shading!


Stamp - Magnolia,Cardstock - Co'oredinations, Ink & Colour - Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics and Rangers Inkessential highlighter, Tools - Nestabilities and D'vine Swirls embossing folder, MS Lace Doily punch

I didn't add a sentiment as I wasn't sure whether this would be used as a birthday card, but a friend of mine has now asked to have this for her niece's birthday.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I hope to catch up on every one's blogs this weekend. Thank you for stopping by and any comments you may leave as they are greatly appreciated.

    Beautiful card and you certainly have worked out your pro-marker colouring it is beautiful. Any dye based ink works well with these markers I use impress and it never bleeds.. at less than £3 a pad at hobby craft they are a good option. Sue :o)
