Magnolia Down Under Challenge #17 - A Sketch

For this week's challenge the ever talented Kellie Winnell has come up with a fabulous sketch. If you love this sketch I also have some exciting news for you - Kellie and Kristy Young have decided to start up their own sketch & colour challenge blog where you can use ANY stamp or product you like!!! Delicious Diva Challenges is coming August 4th, 2009. Their challenges will be weekly and will rotate between a sketch one week and colour challenge the other week. Go check them out.
Now back to this sketch - I've stuck fairly closely to it - but couldn't help popping on a great big layered flower. I had made 3 build-a-brads for the top left but decided they looked too crowded - so the 3rd one became my flower centre.

The DP is from the gorgeous SU Bella Rose series and I've textured my Whisper White pieces using my Floral Fantasy cuttlebug folder.

Originally little Miss Tilda was going to be sitting on the bottom edge of the square - but I decided to pop her up higher where she didn't look so lost! A thin strip of Chocolate Chip CS came to the rescue as a seat. I thought she needed to be "grounded" and not floating in mid-air!

I've had a sneak peek at the work from some of the other DT members and it always amazes me how many fabulous - and yet so different - creations can be made from one inspiration! I highly recommend you pop over to MDUC and see what the other's have done before giving it a go yourselves!

Gorgeous card Debbie. Love the embossed card. Would never have thought to use WW on the backgrond.

Kristie said...

What a gorgeous Tilda! Love your card Debbie ♥ I don't blame you for adding in that FABULOUS flower...just delicious!

Sam said...

Very cute take on the sketch Debbie.

I think the flower with the third brad in it works very well. It draws the components together (especially as it includes all of the colours). The chocolate bench makes that colur part of the image for me instead of just borders.

Such a pretty card! Your coloring of Tilda is amazing.... especially her hair, with all the highlights. Great job! She is too sweet sitting there in her pink dress and scandinavian shoes. And don't you just love build-a-brads!
