Just Magnolia

A little something different from me today. Found a new challenge blog Just Magnolia and their first challenge uses a sketch and a Magnolia stamp. I have quite a few tucked away in a drawer and decided to dust one off. Most seem to be winter themed but I found this one of Tingla in the bath.

Magnolia stamp, doodlebug rub ons, nestabilities, Pro-MArkers, Prima flowers, glitter gems, Cuttlebug emboss folders, DCWV paper, brads
I stamped the image and coloured with Pro-Markers, highlighted with a little Glamour Dust and some glitter gems on the water bubbles. Did my best interpretation of the sketch layout which I found really challenging to fit on the card well. I decided to limit my colours in case the Tingla image ended up getting lost in chaos. It was only when I went to pop Tingla on the card I realised she was too big to fit in the sketch, so I cut her out and mounted her on 3D foam.
A spot of Cuttlebugging to add some texture and some fab Prima flowers and I was almost done. Took me ages to figure out the text for this one and I decided to do a circle rather than a rectangle as on the sketch - hope that's OK.
Well it's another gorgeous sunny day so I'm venturing out for a walk for a coffee with my friend Tam and her little baby Eve. It'll be more of a waddle as bubs is lying very low down today, but I have the pushchair with Zac in to lean on so that'll help - I paint a pretty picture don't I?
