To my fellow Canucks, hope you had a fabulous Canada Day yesterday. And to my American friends, Happy upcoming 4th of July!
We're half way into our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog. The theme is...Love is in the Air. This is a midway reminder--you have another week to get your entries in. Visit the challenge blog HERE to get more details on the challenge and how to join in the fun.
And if you need inspirations to get you going, check out the fabulous cards/projects of my DT teammates-- Team A was posted last week HERE and Team B is being posted today HERE.
So...for my DT card, I've came up with this easel card...
The main patterned paper is actually a self-stamped paper. I used a cream-coloured cardstock and a few Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink stamp pads. Images of Stampendous Agapanthus Bloom were randomly stamped in Dusty Concord (purple) and then I dabbed Wild Honey (yellow) and Forest Moss (green) all over the page.
The adorable images here were coloured with markers - Promarkers and Pantone Trias by Letraset. I'm featuring two Magnolia images, one newly released and one older one:
- Love Love Love Tilda from the Special Moments Collection 2013
- Tilda Spreads Love from the You Are So Special Collection 2011
