Hello. Happy Tuesday!
We're into our second week of the current challenge at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog where the theme is to use VELLUM in fun, creative ways. This is a sort-of midway reminder--you have a couple more week to join the challenge. It's Magnolia-licious Team B's turn to show our cards/projects for the challenge.
Here's my card...
Parchment craft or Pergamano is a craft that interests me but I have done very little of it. I have made use of some of the Pergamano tools that I have to make this faux lace for the vellum element on my card.
This cute image being featured is of Happy Princess Tilda and she's one of the images from Magnolia's Once Upon A Time Collection 2013.
In the inside of my card...
I am featuring another adorable image from the same Once Upon A Time Collection 2013. This is Tilda Longstocking. Yes...again! I don't usually feature the same image in two postings in a row--just bad planning here! This one was actually done before the previous one. Oh well.
The images on this card were coloured using my Letraset Promarker and Pantone Tria markers.
Both the Magnolia stamps I've used here are available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious--an excellent source for your Magnolia stamps, both full-size and mini stamps. If you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Also available now at Magnolia-licious are those adorable Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet and also cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps.
Diana offers discounted prices, excellent customer service and you also get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase!
