Magnolia Down Under-Photo Inspiration

Hope you have all had a great week. I certainly have had a different one, but a very enjoyable one too, as I have started my new job this week! So lots of changes in store :)
I started this card last weekend and only had time to finish it this afternoon. I dont know what has happened to my mojo this week! But it had certainly disappeared!
At last this afternoon I felt like a play in my craftroom to finish my challenge card for MDUC. This week the challenge is  photo inspiration and is sponsered by Tilda's Town. Go across and have a look at the rest of the DT'S card. As always they are stunning :)
Ive used  Tilda blowing bubbles and painted her with DI's on 300 gsm Watercolour paper
Designer Papers are by Pion.

Again I used my Sizzix Die 'Clock'! (love this), and rolled my own flowers and finished off painting them with 'Picket Fence 'Crackle paint

Thankyou for looking and hope you have a fab weekend!!

Magnolia Down Under 113-Sketch

Evening All... or Morning to you lovely down under girlies! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
This weeks Challenge over on MDUC is Karen's sketch and a fab one too. Thankyou Karen.

Its been raining so much here in the UK this week, that's its the only inspiration I could come up with!!!LOL. But I do love this Tilda-'Tilda in the summer rain'. Its also a card for a friend who's been a little under the weather recently!!
I painted with DI'S, but tried to do the 'no lines look'!! but I havent a light enough dye ink pad yet, so used what I had which was Archival Coffee. Though it is definately much softer than normal.

For the flags I used the new Doo-Hickey Die 'Flag and Clouds' and the lettering used Tim's alterations die Typeset. For the shabby rose ribbon, I stained With Distress Victorian Velvet. I'm in love with this stuff!!


Again I did the same with the flowers and painted over with white paint!

And to finish I decorated the back too using Doo Hickeys Vintage Tag and Hearts. All papers are Magnolia.
