Just Magnolia - A Sketch

Morning friends, as you can see it's weekend and so I get to craft, as I don't have much time to do so during the week.   I received some new Martha Stewart punches from Scrap-a-Doodles. They are reasonably priced, so pop around and pay them a visit.  I couldn't wait to use them.

Just Magnolia also have a sketch for you to follow.  I had an adorable Tilda to use which was stamped for me by my friend Paola.  Paola has really blessed me with a lot of Tilda images and I am very grateful.
I have used a pale blue AC cardstock as the base for this card. Matted soft pink card onto that and then I used my new (almost finished) gingham blue paper. The other DP is soft pink with butterflies on it, from the Wilson & Maclagan range bought at Merrypak.  The doilie was sent to me by Paola and made a nice background for Tilda and her fence to rest on. I used foam dots to mount them onto the doilie. Tilda and her fence were coloured in with copics. The flowers and pearls are from my stash. Notice the new MS stamps please... first the huge Monarch Butterfly - I really didn't expect it to be quite so large but I still love it. The other is a border punch, Traditional Eyelet.

This pic highlights the glaze used on Tilda's flowers and also to show you the dimensional butterfly I made with the new MS punch!

By the time you read this I'll be at the hairdressers with my Mom. We're both going for a "tune up"... lol  Well, at least I am, Mom's hair is white as snow and we love it that way, so no colouring for her, just a trim!

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday, I'll catch up with you later.  Tons of hugs, Sharon x
