So Many Smiles…..

I’m back today to share my latest creation for Midweek Magnolia. Our new challenge is…

‘Pretty In Pink’.

I’m using one of my favourite stamps today and that is ‘London Tilda’ from the Little London Collection to create this pretty card in pinks.


My image has been stamped onto Cryogen White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copic Markers in the following colours:

Skin - E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair & Boots  - W7, W5, W3, W1, W00
Dress, Hair Tie and flowers - RV95, RV93, RV91.

Here’s a close up of my image.


and another…


My image has been cut out using a Floral Oval die from Spellbinders. I have sponged the embossed pieces and inside frame using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The pretty papers I have used are from Maja Design - Sofiero Collection.


I have machine stitched around the outer edges of all my paper layers and sponged the edges with Distress Ink. On the left side I have added a ‘Cute Corner’ Doohickey die by Magnolia as shown above, some gorgeous lace and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a shabby seam binding bow.


On the right side I have added my sentiment, 2 ‘Bloomy Tag’ Doohickey dies by Magnolia with more of that gorgeous shabby seam binding and a few pearls to complete my card.
