Tilda In Pink & Green xxx

I got these stamps when I was at the NEC a few weeks ago and this is their first inking!! I actually got them from Mr Magnolia himself - very sweet man, don't know what his name was though, but I just kept on stalking him.

Poor thing :(

This is my first card for the new Just Magnolia challenge . As there are quite a few of my blog buds on the DT, I just wanted to give them my support - not that they need it cos this is one popular challenge for sure.

This week the challenge is Pink & Green.
Well say no more, cos it is one of my very fave ever colour combis.

So this is me card :)x

I used a masking technique with 2 Tilda stamps and coloured her with my fab PMs (I do still sooo love them and will be demo-ing them at Port Sunlight very soon!!) and then added my usual sprinkling of Glamour Dust.

The pink papers are from the Wild Rose Studios Spring CD and the green are PP . And the old MSBP got yet another airing, although I have to say that it has been acting up again today. I know I over-work the poor thing but I wish it wouldn't muck about cos my heart misses a beat when it goes off on one!!!


I added a line of sparkle to the border as well, even though from this angle it does look a bit like a snail has crawled across it lol xxx


I got this ribbon from a local floristry warehouse. It's just so pretty.

So there ya go.


I did start another card for this challenge which I may or may not get finished today, so I may be back later on. But for now, I am going to love you and leave you cos we put up a new swing /slide thing this morning for Miss Kyla and she is having such a good time on it that I want to get back out there and watch her (sad old Granny that I am xx). Then it's off to Next and then I better get to Sainos or we will not eat this evening.


So if I am not back later, have the fabbiest of Saturday eves.

Hugs xxxxx

Masking the two stamps gives a clever result and I love the texture of that green ribbon. I just have to get me one of those MSBP's whether it's temperamental or not!!!
Love,

Sheena said...

Love the card and love the love stamps!
I just wanted to add that my MS punch like that can be a bit temperamental too - I was trying to punch through some card the other evening and the bugger just would not go through, so I had to use my other circly one which went through like a hot knife through butter.

Hope you had a nice evening!
