Magnolia Down Under Challenge #16 - Cream, Brown and ... Blue!

There has been a little bit of a change over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges - we have decided to run the challenge fortnightly for a variety of reasons. And what happens this week - with 2 weeks to make my DT card I left it to the last minute again - LOL.

The challenge is to use cream/white , brown and one extra colour - either pink, blue or orange. Can you guess I chose blue!! The DP is from SU Bella Blue, my cream is Very Vanilla CS and my brown is Chocolate Chip CS. I've stamped Tilda with Memento Black ink and coloured her in with a combination of Copic and Touch markers.

I found this fabulous cobweb ribbon at a local store and and thought it would go perfectly on this card - so I bought a whole metre, and a couple of metres in other colours too - LOL!!! You can never have enough ribbon! I framed the right side of my image using half a nestie - I didn't want it to cover the ribbon but I felt it needed something.

Now it's your turn!!! Head over to MDUC and check out what the other DT members have done and then give it a go yourself!

I love the colours and the ribbon is pretty nazzy. What material is that ribbon made out of anyway? The whole design is very cute. Have to say I am getting tempted to give it a go. Probably a good thing I haven't seen you for a while LOL.
Love you

Very nice card Debbie. Your colouring is fabulous.

Very very clever card Debbie. I love it on ALL of its levels. I have never been adventurous enough to try blues and browns together....but this has given me a smidge more confidence. I think my FAVE part is the rusty brown. Thanks for so much inspiration in such an amazing amount of space.

Oh, Debbie, what an adorable image this one is! And you've colored her perfectly. Plus I love the overlapping labels.

Don't you know that nothing would get done if it weren't for the last minute? Case in point: if I don't get off this computer and get cracking on prepping for Stamp Club, I'll be in serious trouble! LOL

Love and hugs,

Leonie said...

Debbie, you're card is simply stunning. I love this shade of blue--it goes so well with the brown. Your colouring is always, ALWAYS, so perfect. The cobweb ribbon is wonderful--it adds a different texture to the card. Terrific!
