Just Magnolia ~19~


Again I’ve used an ‘older’ Tilda that hasn’t seen ink yet for this weeks
JUST MAGNOLIA challenge that provided a lovely sketch by Rach..
and I’ve used the equally unused shelf to go with her.

I’ve used the same papers as my previous card, there is always so much wastage when using 12×12’s that I’m now going to use it up for another card straight away instead of chucking the scraps in my scrapbag [which is overflowing anyway!] and hopefully it will declutter my workspace somewhat 🙂

Don’t you think it makes a change tho, when matting everything onto a different colour cardstock?


I was going to post a quick give away post last night.. but a couple of things came up..

Promise I will be back tonight, scouts honour..lol

Have a great day!

Hugs, Marlene x

    Glad to hear you are on your best behavious, lol …. for how long???? Also nice to finally ink up the rubber that seems to ever grow in our collections. This is just gorgeous sweetie – love it. I always think the layers show so much better when matted on different card – thanks for joining us this week hun

    She is such a sweet Tilda! A gorgeous card Marlene. Those papers look so different against the other CS compared with the previous card. Amazing colouring as always.

    This is stunning Marlene! I’ve had to do a double take at the papers as I wouldn’t have even said they were the same. It sure does make a diference when you matt them onto different coloured CS!
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
    Hugs, Vicky ~x~

    Yummy card! Love the cuite Tilda! You are right about the wastage….mine goes into a bag never to be seen again for months and months and by then something new has captured my eye! It doesn’t look at all similar to the last card..hardly even spotted it was the same papers.
    Have a fab evening,
    Judy xx

    eigenlijk valt het helemaal niet op dat je hetzelfde papier hebt gebruikt soordat je andere cardstock gebruikt lijkt het totaal anders
