Magnolia Down Under Challenge #187


This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges it's ... 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US

WOW I can't believe Magnolia Down Under has been going for FOUR YEARS now and I have been there since the very beginning! We've had some AWESOME ladies join us in our DT over the years - talented card makers and fabulous people - many of whom I consider good friends. The superb quality of the entries always amazes me too!

I had a little play with my background on this card. I stamped Tilda onto my blending card and then used my spellbinders nestie to cut her out. I used the embossing line to give me a border for my colouring and coloured in the background first. I then added some texture using some gauze and colourless blender before splashing on some more colourless blender to create the spots. Once the background had dried off properly I coloured Tilda in. Some stardust stickles add a magical touch to the stars coming off Tilda's wand.

Check out our BLOG to see the amazing inspiration from our fabulous DT and come and join us to help us celebrate.

Copics Used - Skin (E11, E00, E000, R20, R11) plus E49, E43, E42, E40, E27, E18, E15, E13, BG18, BG13, BG11, BG10, BG000, YR27, Y19, Y13, Y00, C4, C2
