Magnolia Girls

Well I found a couple of little Magnolia Girls I had stamped and not colored in, that is just tragic! So last night I pulled out my copics and colored them in!





When cleaning out for the garage sale last weekend I found a package of Basic Grey Infusion that I had not even opened, so the first girl went with the pinks and browns of the paper. I had seen a sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers and this is a vague representation of it. I went to look for it to link, but can't find it now. Sorry. I matted the patterned paper on some bright turquoise card stock, used my petite oval nestibilities to cut the image out and then the darker brown card stock. I cut out pieces of some queen and co. felt flourish border, and then used some of my pink glass beads. The Thanks is from the Studio G dollar stamps. Stickled the wings, and added some gel pen dots and border.



The second girl reminded me of the weather lately. Spring is trying to blow in... no really blow in! The past week or so it has been sooooo windy here. I am dying for spring as you can see from the past few days cards. But there is a few weeks of the start of spring where the leaves are just starting to come in, the grass is beginning to greening up, and small flowers are popping up. And then there is the wind!!! Well this girl is standing in this beginning of spring. I didn't want to use any patterned paper, I wanted to try and create this feeling. I stamped the trees with a Stamps by Judith tree, then added the leaves with a copic marker, and the grass is a stump stamp from Stamps by Judith that I stamped over and over and over. I wanted the feel of wind. In my goodies from the LSS I purchased a small stamp by All Night Media called Airwave, I stamped it all over the card with my Versamark ink. Then added some extra fine glitter. It may be hard to see on the photo, but I really like how it turned out. The girl was added with some pop dots, then some prima flowers with stickles added to the grass. Again the hello is a Studio G dollar stamp. I think it did end up with the feel I was going for.

I entered this card into the Papertake Weekly Challenge, it was just pure luck that the theme this week and my making a weather card the same time! Go over and see the fabulous work from a very talented bunch of people!
