Hi everyone!

Guess what I made? Another Magnolia card? You got it, LOL !!!


This is a colour challenge for February at the Magnolia-licious site. I am very late in getting it done! :o(


The colours we were to use are all SU colours: Rose Red; Regal Rose; Old Olive; and So Saffron. Some of the girls got it done very early and didn't seem to have a problem - well they didn't say one way or another !! LOL

I had a problem. There was no way I could use all of my plain coloured paper and that is mostly what I have from SU. So I got out the colours and went through all of my paper from YEARS ago until I found some that had the correct colours in it. That was a job in itself - I am sure many of you know what I mean LOL LOL!!!!


In the end my card is made with Rose Red, I have cut Regal Rose with my Fiskers border punch and layered that on top. I found a tiny checkered paper of So Saffon and white - this is layered on top of the Regal Rose but it is terribly hard to see the checks. Next I found a lovely design paper that actually has all of the colours in it plus a few more. Unfotunately the other colours where purple and blue on butterflies but ended up being completely covered by Tilda.

As usual Tilda has been coloured with Copics - tonight however she has a paper pieced dress with all of the required coloures in it. Her basket has been filled with one of MS puched leaves in Old Olive and I have added several flower shaped brads in the required colours as well. I decided since you couldn't see my So Saffron layer well; to stamp and cut out the sun in that colour and I have just shaded and highlighted parts of it with Copics. Parts of the sun and Tilda's wings have been glittered, and her boots have diamond glaze on them.


Here are the photos. The front of the card in full:

I hope you like it! Good night all. Have a great week!
