I started with Tilda sitting - love her angle she is leaning - She is colored with my Copics and again I have used my chalks for the back ground -
- for my colors I found a K & Company paper stack buried on my shelf that I hadn't used in a long time - and pulled out a few papers to match. Probably more fall colors, but hey it was raining and cool the day I made this card.. LOLI matted each piece of pattern paper with the same brown Core'dinations card stock that I used for my base - I sewed each one down with a dark brown thread and a simple straight stitch. The sentiment I believe is a Penny Black - one of my favorites, stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, then doodled around. I used a Martha Stewart twill ribbon for the band across the middle. Love that twill.. especially when you find it on clearance for 2.00 ... there is a ton on those rolls!
Then my flowers.. really pretty huh? MIL has been messing with her flower patterns and making up new ones..don't you just love the frill to the edge of these? Really wonderful in person. I used a large Prima green flower for the leaves, jewelry spacer and brown mini brads for the centers -
Hope you will visit the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog and see all the DT work, and then put in for the prize.. really awesome prizes there!
Scheduled this post ahead.. so I'll check back later in the morning to catch up on my blog reading and will report if there is anything new in the Donkey world... doubt it as Vicki shows no interest or signs in having a baby... LOL she just wanted some hormonal attention last week!
HUGS and -
