Well, I tried to make this card last night. My brain had already gone to bed, I got up this morning and worked with it again. It just isn't going well. The sketch is from the Ismaki Challenge Blog and it really is a great sketch this week. I just don't have it all together. I finally just decided to leave it alone and accept it.
I started with a green Bazzill card stock, which I cut with my scallop blade on my Fiskar's Rotary cutter. I then decided to pull out my first Magnolia, very sentimental, ya know. I colored her with my Copics, and then matted her with the green, then a lilac purple, to match this piece of fabric. Yes, I had to take my mother-in-law to a quilt shop a couple of weeks ago. Oh my the patterns are intoxicating, colors so vibrant. So I purchased a few squares to try and see if I can use them. I have pieced them a couple of times as dresses on the Magnolias, but this time decided to use it as the focal pattern. I had to move things around alittle because the size of Tilda was to big and was covering too much of the fabric, so I off centered things just a bit. A couple of Grandma's buttons are used on the corners. I skipped the bottom corner title, because my ribbon had the words Absolutely Adorable printed on it. I then dotted with stickles, and it just felt unfinished with out my white gel pen edging. So what do you think? I think I just need more sleep... and try again.
Well hope you have a great Tuesday! We are hoping for some rain here today....please rain.... we need it!
