Just Magnolias - A fun sketch by TAB!

Friday!! And that means time for Just Magnolias - today there is a really fun sketch by DT member TAB
Me... I decided to go with simple, clean lines - which isn't always me. In fact it ended up really being hard. But I wanted the Tilda to be the focus and POP off the card - so I kept at it. I used Making Memories papers on a cream colored card stock. I sewed down all of the pieces onto mats of the same color.

I used a vintage piece of lace as my band across the middle, and three dark red buttons for the dots.
Another challenge for me is to not just play with my newer Magnolias... so I am trying every other week to use some of my older Tilda's... this is one of my favorites. I colored her with my Copics, really heavily - remember I wanted her to POP. I doodled around the edges with a Copic multi liner. Also high lighted with white gel pen. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is punched out with a SU tab punch. Looking at it now.. it really needs some flowers and some bling. But at the time I did this I was really trying to do a more clean and simple look.... sigh... I just don't do it well.

I do hope you will pull out one of your Magnolias and join us this week - a great prize..... which is any C.C. Designs stamp set of your choice!! And oh my! There are some fabulous sets for you to choose from. Love when prizes are your choice don't you?

Hope you have a wonderful Friday - that pile of laundry I was going to tackle yesterday is still staring at me... I got the worst headache yesterday and laundry just fell of my list. So there it is again today.. and no matter what it will be done!! Sound like a super hero huh? I think sometimes I need one to keep up with this house.. and there are only two of us! Well Libbie and Gato for sure add to the mess!

I'll see you tomorrow for Donkey/Libbie day -
