Tilda and Her Tangled Balloons - Magnolia-licious 'Anything Goes'


We're midway into our 'Anything Goes' challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  Today it's Team B's turn to post our cards to inspire you to play along.  Visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge to get complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun.  Don't forget to check out the fabulous cards my DT teammates have created for you.

Here is what I've created...

This picture below is to better show the 3-dimensional look of the floral arrangements. 

And the inside of my card...

By the way, that green-coloured designer paper is really more of an olive-green tone in real life, a shade that I realy like.  I don't know what it looks like on your computer, but what's showing on my laptop right now is a more lime-green colour...pukey green, eeuww!

I like finding small parts in Magnolia images that I can play around with and do a wee bit of Zentangle.  In these two Tilda images, I found the balloons to tangle.  Not really happy with the pattern I did on the balloon on the card front...oh well, too late now...sigh.

Up Up And Away from the With Love Collection 2013

You can find the stamps for these two Tildas at Magnolia-licious on-line store, as well as other equally adorable Magnolia images--both full size and mini.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose StudiosPenny Black and Candibeans.  Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia Doohickey.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and what's more, you get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.  Sweet!

Oh I like using these dragonflies on my card.  Makes a nice change from butterflies.  I used a Willow Dragonfly, Memory Box 98319 die that is available from Magnolia-licious.  I used translucent parchment paper for the wings and drew lines on them for the veins (or whatever you call them).  

There's also a larger-size similar dragonfly die called Meadow Dragonfly, Memory Box 98318.
