It's Tuesday and another COLOUR CHALLENGE with the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog

Hi everyone!!

You don't want to miss this wonderful Challenge from Design Team Member CHRISSY LE.
Chrissy has chosen the colours GREEN, BLUE, and PINK.

Here is the picture we have for the Challenge:

I am sure you won't be surprised to learn that I made another Christmas Card.
I really enjoyed Chrissy's Challenge - I think I am into untraditional Christmas Colours this year LOL
For my card I have used images from the 'So Snowy So Jolly Collection 2009'
Tilda Singing Carols #3007; Snowy Circle #482 and Noel #457 Gosh I am sorry but all but the 'NOEL' seem to be out of stock at the moment, but I see Diana has lots on order for you.

Here is my card:

Tilda was stamped onto Cryogen White paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then stamped again onto a piece of 'Eclipse Masking paper'. I cut her out of the masking paper and laid her on top of herself * chuckle; then stamped 'Snowy Circle' over the top of her.
My Design Paper is digital from 'Bearly Mine'. My two card stock papers are from 'SU' : 'Taken With Teal' and 'Green Galore'. The design paper on both the inside and outside of the card have been painted with white acrylic paint on the sides, then touched over with my Versa-mark ink pad and sprinkled with white embossing powder and heated with the heat gun - just wanted to 'jazz' it up a bit more :o) * After I had done this, I received my Magnolia Ink Magazine:
'Merry Christmas', and read an article in it about doing this very thing*.
You will notice the circle that Tilda is standing in, as well as the inside of the card, have been distressed a lot and then inked with 'Tim Holtz': 'Tattered Rose'. I used 'SU' white 5/8" Organza Ribbon and coloured it with my Copic YG17. I tied a triple ribbon on my Bow-easy from which I attached 3 coloured jingle bells. I have used a bunch of 'SU' Dazzling Diamond Glitter on the snowflakes, the fur on Tilda's coat and hat and her wings. Her boots have Crystal Lacquer on them. I then sprinkled 'Polar White Flower Soft' on and around the bottom of her boots.

The very outside circle of the writing panel was made by cutting 1/2" strips of my Design Paper and punching it out with a pretty 'SU' Punch.

I hope you love the work your Design Team has done for Chrissy's Challenge!
