Just Magnolia ~5~


Oh my.. isn’t the weather just dreadfull?
I really don’t do miserable weather very well..
there is only one advantage and that is that there is no urge to go outside..
so more time indoors and in my craft room.. haha

New challenge over at JUST MAGNOLIA and this week there is a yummie sketch to follow by Naoual.

It’s absolutely lovely and I will use it again.


For my card I have stamped the little Magnolia Angel kitty first and masked her..
then rummaged through my ‘older’ Tilda’s and thought this cutie would do just the job..
so stamped her partly over the cat.

Then coloured the image with Copic Sketch markers.. I’ve deeply fallen in love with this medium!! 
The wings on both Tilda and the cat are very glittery but it doesn’t show up so much on this pic.

Sentiment is from the ‘Best Yet’ set from Stampin Up!, One of my favorites..
and I seem to be grabbing for them every time 🙂 
The papers are from the DCWV ‘Latte’ stack, Prima Flowers and everything else from stash.



Now, I love how the inside turned out..
I used the left over blue and cut into squares
then used my nesties to cut the circle and scalloped circle. 
Then I stamped the kitty  onto the inner circle and lightly coloured with copics.
Because the DCWV pad is textured I think the cat now looks as if it is embroidered..
such a cool effect!!

Right, I’m off to watch some telly and wind down..
Thanks to the JM challenge for the inspiration and have a great evening all!

Hugs, Marlene x
