Wild Orchid, Just Magnolia, Friday Sketchers & Pro-Markers


My brand spanking new Magnolia Stamp Club kit arrived on Saturday so I whipped it out and started inking it up straight away!! Had real fun making this card, but I will admit I messed up a few times so I had to recycle a few parts into other parts. I had the brilliant idea of using the doily Marianne Designs die around the image, so I stamped away cut away and then went hrmmphh it looks cack!! So I re cycled it and turned it over and coloured it with distress ink and tah-dah my idea is re-born, shame I wasted some water colour paper though. So Challenges I am entering this into

I Love Pro-Markers: Think Pink - self explanatory which part is used to fulfil this challenge. I have used Aqua-Markers though so I hope this is ok.

Passion for Pro-Markers: Recycle - The ribbon came off a Christmas pressie from last year, I think that is suitably recycled.

Wild Orchid Challenge: Stitch it up - Did a little faux stitching ala Dyan Reaveley style.

Friday Sketchers: The sketch - I didn't add on the flowers in the sketch because it looked too much for my taste, hope this is ok.

Just Magnolia: 2 X 2 - Images are the new Magnolia stamp club, I have used 2X stamps, 2X papers, 2X ribbons, 2X main focal colours (slightly lying as their is a bit of gold in their too but I claim artistic license!!)

Thanks for looking

Keep it Simple Challenge 7 - Seeing Stars

Well its Sunday morning so that means its time for Keep it Simple!! This weeks challenge is ''Seeing Stars'' and what a fab challenge too especially so close to christmas.


I went with a traditional scene but slightly modern being a collage stamp. Decoupaged it up in two places and made my own background with book page and distress ink, as the challenge says ''keep it simple''. I am also entering this into the fab Winter Wonderland challenge which is ''Jesus is the reason for the season''

Thanks for visiting me
