Magnolia Down Under Challenge #49 - Polka Dots

This weeks at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we're seeing spots - we're challenging you to feature Polka Dots somewhere on your creation. It's fairly obvious where mine are - LOL. I also used circles to create the setting for my Tilda - my large polka dots - LOL. I had originally coloured Tilda in brighter blues - but I decided to colour over her with some muted browns to tone the blue down and give her a more vintage feel - I was quite pleased with how it turned out!

Now its time to hop over the Magnolia Down Under blog and check out how fabulously dotty our DT have been this week (yeah a little more than usual - LOL) and hopefully be inspired to get a little dotty too!

BREAKING NEWS - For all you Magnolia lovers Kellie has her pre-order listed at Tickled Pink Stamps for the NEW WEDDING COLLECTION - check them out HERE - wooohoooo!!! I have mine on order all ready ; )

Love your polka-dotty creation. The blue looks great with the bronw tones, she looks like a little sepia print! Circles are a great touch too to go along with the dots. Great take on the challenge.
