Just Magnolia, Friday Sketchers & Tuesday Taggers Challenges

Finished this card today with my new Magnolia images that arrived yesterday. Love the pirate theme, but I did get stuck on how to colour the anchor LOL!. I am entering this into 3 challenges today.

Friday Sketchers: The sketch
Just Magnolia: Theme - ''Anything goes''
Tuesday Taggers: Theme - Childhood memories Sponsored by ''The Craft Barn''

You may be wondering how this fits into the theme of ''childhood memories'' well I have a partly fond memory of being taken to Disney Land Paris by my Grandma, While in the pirates themed area a very French pirate came up behind me and went ''Booo'' in my ear, I screamed, everyone laughed. I wasn't impressed at all!!

Main image and background is Magnolia, sentiment is from butterfly kisses, paper is from DCWV Once Upon a Time stack.

2 Challenges in1 card

Well I had to rip and cut the first cat image off as the pinflair glue gel had come through and marked it really badly, for future don't use pinflair glue gel with pro marker images!! Took this one outside to photo as the sky is so clear and bright and a lovely day.... then I got a splinter when I brushed off the bench to make a clean spot, sods law!!.

So challenges I am entering:
Sketch Saturday week 98: The sketch
Passion for ProMarkers week 47: Create your own background using only pro markers

Phew that was a fun one, just a shame the image had been marked by the glue. The cushion the cat is laying on was hand drawn by myself and coloured as well as the cat with promarkers.

Flowers: Crafty Feeling
Ribbon: Loose in the bottom of a drawer

Sentiment: Butterfly Kisses
Paper: Bottom of a drawer

Tuesday Taggers - Give us a tag

This weeks Tuesday Taggers challenge is ''Give us a Tag'' and sponsored by the lovely Georgina. I have been meaning to do this for about a year and never got round to it so I thought perfect time to start. Made myself a load of tags + extras for the future and started playing with my alcohol inks and making swatches. The camera reflected off the shiny card tho and it was very hard to photograph!!
