Hello everyone - hope you are all well today!
I am hoping to enter my card today in this week's Just Magnolia challenge (which is ribbons and bows) and the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge (which is distressing).
I have used the Magnolia stamps I recently won in Tab's candy - I have decoupaged Tilda (first time I have tried decoupaging a stamped image - quite pleased actually), and I masked her to add the strawberry to make it look as though she was leaning on the strawberry (first attempt at this too, and I think it could have been a bit more central). I then stamped the sentiment onto shrink plastic (first attempt at making my own charm for a card - not over impressed with it as I have not cut it out very well - uneven cutting seems to show up more after it was shrunk!). As I was adding the charm, I somehow managed to upset my bow and I can't get it to look good again (oh well - if I try anymore to put it right, I'll end up with no bow at all I think!)
I have distressed the edges of the image and the patterned papers (which are Kay and Co) a bit and added red ink - I'm not brave enough to do it too much yet, but I hope it's enough to be entered in this week's Spoon Full of Sugar challenge!
The layout I used was last week's Papertake Weekly sketch, but I didn't finish the card in time to enter that (just don't know where time goes!).
I've just realised that I forgot to glitter Tilda's wings, so I'll do that when I've finished blogging this evening.
Anyway, must go and link this post to the challenges before it's too late! Hope to see you again soon.
Love, Andrea xx
