Thank You - Magnolia-licious "W"ednesday #13


It's time for "W"ednesday Post #13 at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  This is when a few of the DT gals showcase those cute images from Wee Stamps or Wild Rose Studios that are now being sold at the Magnolia-licious on-line store.  Participating in today's "W"ednesday Post are Janiel, Jane, new DT member Karen and me.

And so, this is my card...

I like this card style and it was created by Marianne Skjelstad.  She calls this 'Double Tag Card'--I'm pretty sure that's the correct translation from the Norwegian 'Dobbelt Tagkort', isn't it?  You can find her tutorial HERE

I am featuring this adorable image is called Rowan Fairy, recently released by Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps and is now available from Magnolia-licious.  I've coloured her with markers. I've added glitter to her wings--although it's very hard to see on the picture.  In real life the glitter made the wings stand out from the background.

You can see the rest of the images from the Wee Stamps Collection HERE.

Beside other stamps available from Magnolia-licious--Magnolia of course, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and Candibeans--you can also find cutting dies from various companies.  Check them out HERE.  
I've used just one of the Poppystamps dies on this card called Meadow Leaf  PS 806.

I was trying to match my embellishments to the Rowan Fairy image, so I wanted to add rowan berries to my floral arrangements.  I made the berries by colouring some tiny white pompoms with my Promarker--although it's not quite the shade I was aiming for...tee hee.
