I know we all have some love for our Tildas.. and all Magnolias, well this week the challenge at Just Magnolias - is LOVE! Just in time for your special Valentine ( My favorite day of the year! It is Hubby's birthday and our Anniversary!)
For my card I knew I wanted to use some new very yummy papers I got while at CHA - Vintage Valentine from Fancy Pants. I just adore this collection of papers! Again.. my love for "Valentines Day!" I used a white card stock base to start with and then used the solid red from the collection and layered pattern papers with the red as mats, sewing them all together with a zig zag stitch.
Then I went through my box of Magnolia images, I pulled out one sitting Tilda holding a heart - perfect! And I hadn't used this sweetie in a while so even better! But what should she be sitting on? Well I felt the rock wall was a nice place to have her sit and wait for her Valentine. I colored it all with my Copics, high lighted with white gel pen - and it was just all to bold and bright for the pattern paper.. uh oh... So I dug in my ink drawer and pulled out my Vintage photo Distressed ink and aged my image. This was perfect! I really think I need to leave this ink on my desk! LOL that is how my desk gets so cluttered, but then I don't forget my supplies -
Instead of a "sentiment" stamp - I just let the pattern paper speak for my card - "sending my Love" was too perfect -
Now for some more love... pop over to the Just Magnolias challenge and see the other DT cards! And again there is a fabulous prize :0)
