We're starting a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. For the next fortnight, the theme is 'Use Kraft Paper.' Hop over to the Magnolia-licious blog to get your complete details of the challenge, the prizes to be won and how you can play along with us. My DT teammates have each also created something to inspire you to join us, so don't forget to check them out.
This easel card is what I've created for the Kraft challenge.
And a close-up of the winter scene featuring a couple of Magnolia Stamps images:
- Tilda in Cozy Coat from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014
- Snowy Cottage also from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014
I had to do some masking when stamping the images to create the scene. Alcohol ink markers were used for colouring along with a few coloured pencils. I meant to add glitter to the snow, but oops...forgot to do that.
Both of the Magnolia Stamps stamps for the above images are available from Magnolia-licious. Diana carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps. And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Saturated Canary and Candibeans and Crafter's Companion, along with cutting dies from various companies including Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia Doohickey, Wild Rose Studio.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and you also get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.
