Hi everyone I'm running a wee bit late tonight. 1st of all I want to say that I'm so sorry if I've not commented on any new creations since last night but I havn't been feeling good at all & only finally pulled my self together tonight to make a card. 2nd of all I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your kind comments, I really dont think highly of my cards at all I'm always in awe of every1 else, its actually hubby & my boys that push me into even thinking about being on DTs.......I get told off all the time for thinking less of myself but I really cant help it. I've read all my beautiful comments & they have really cheered me up you all totally rock & I loves ya 'al you are just the greatest & I'm soooo lucky to have wonderful cyber friends like all of you. So again from me to you MMWAH & Thank you.
Right onto my ickle creation, I dont know if its cus I've been bad or what but my Icky-mo (my mo-jo lol) has got up & ran off the little bugga has..... I sat at my craft table for an hour just looking at what was on it....nothing...not a thing came to mind. So I thought right I will look see what challenges there was & try get something working in my wee little brain...........yayyyyy my Icky-mo paid a visit & here it is.....
This is my 1st step card I have seen these around Blogland & absolutely loved them, well I finally got around to making 1. For this I have used 2 pretty Tilda's, Travelling Tilda from the Bon Voyage collection, sitting on an Easter Cart (I chopped off the eggs lol) & Tilda with Wedding Presents from the Wedding 2010 collection. The cart I love & think it can be used for a multitude of sins once the eggs are chopped off unless you want it for Easter of course lol. They have both been coloured with Copics, my 1st images done with them & I have to say I do like these pens, its always the skin tones that take the longest when using a new colouring medium but I'm starting to get there.....I think.
Now for this card it is 2 challenges that gave me the inspiration, Colour Create & Magnolia Stamp Lovers, well I certainly am a Magnolia lover lol.
Over at MSL they want 'Sparkle' so I have tried to incorprate as much sparkle as is humanly possible lol. I have sprinkled clear embossing powder over the cart & warmed it with the heat gun, I also did the same to the edges of the nesties, the gingham flags, the butterfly & Tilda's presents.
This Travelling Tilda I nearly ordered the other day when I put an order into Sir Stamp A Lot luckily I didn't & ordered different 1s cus today I found 5 Magnolia stamps that I had ordered & not inked up so totally forgot about them.....how shocking is that??
Anyway onto the sparkly business I also glittered with Diamond Stickles Tilda's socks, flowers & the top of the flags...so hopefully that will be enough lol.
Over at Colour Create they want 'Pink, Green & Cream' so that is what I've gone for. Now onto the list of supplies.............
Gingham ribbon, pink pearls, glitter & embossing powder all from my stash.
Flowers from Wild Orchid
Small sentiment & Flag Die from Whiff Of Joy
Travelling Tilda from Bunny Zoe's
Tilda with gifts & Cart from Sir Stamp A Lot
Butterfly made using a Tonic Studios punch
