Magnolia Down Under Challenge #1

Magnolia stamps are awesome character stamps.
They just vary with the season, occasion or festivity.
I have a few stamps with me. Its a very popular stamp.
Water coloring them is an art.
The result is beautiful.

You can buy these stamps at Bizzy Becs

There is a blog called Magnolia Down Under which has recently started
and there is a challenge every Sunday.
There are a few rules and has to use Magnolia stamps.

This is the first challenge:

  • Has to have RED
  • Has to have a Tilda not Edwin….
  • And lastly has to have a Autumn Theme
And this is my take on the challenge:

The Bo Bunny papers were perfect for the challenge. Base is red card stock.
I have colored Tilda using red sparkly gel pen and distress inks.

Love the challenge. Yay!!
All the best for everybody who are participating in the challenge.

OK until next time…

D is for daring daughter…

New month brings new challenges at Debs creations. There are plenty of challenges-Recipe challenge, sketch challenges, inspiration from a song challenge, challenge chic challenge, challenges from sponsors and many more.
This is Theresa’s challenge:
My challenge is to create a layout using a monogram and “is for..” as the title.The idea is to get a bit creative with listing some words to describe what is in your layout that start with the letter of your monogram.
I thought it was a fun challenge. I immediately knew what photo to use. It was a daring photo of my daughter. I was trying to use flash with the digital SLR and it was too bright for indoors. But I just loved the photo when I converted into black and white. I then played with contrast on photoshop. Beautiufl photo was the result.
Little Yellow Bicycle, Love Notes paper came to mind again. Perfect for the project. One of the paper is a embossed paper. Awesome. I think I have told about this paper before. I still have a piece remaining. Other products used are Black Bazzill card stock, pink Versa color ink, Prima Say it in crystals, RW laser cut chipboard shrub, Lace, ribbon, Vinyl shape from American Craft, Pink paislee alphas, the “D’ chipboard alpha and the pink layered flowers from Kmart and Kaiser Craft pearls.
I have done something different. I have used a piece of cardboard which I have inked round the edges. I have also inked the flowers of the chipboard shrub and heat embossed it and decorated the centre with the Kaiser craft pearls.
Here are some close up:

Until next time…
