Just one day after yesterday...LOL and it's the 2nd Tuesday in August, so this time it's a new colour challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. I love criss cross cards, so I made another one for the challenge.
For this month, the very talented Jane is our hostess and for the challenge she has chosen the colours pink, aqua/blue and white/cream.
I hope you will play along with us in our challenge. Have a look and see at the fabulous cards of my DT teammates for more inspirations, HERE. As usual there is a $25 Gift Certificate from Magnolia-licious for one lucky winner chosen by random draw.
This is Tilda Makes a Blueberry Blanket (although it's really a raspberry blanket...LOL). I did a bit of masking and had Tilda sat on another image of Swedish Chair.
For the pocket that was formed by the criss-crossed sections of the card, I've made a pull-out tab to write a personal message on.
This image is of Tailor Tilda, which I thought was the perfect match for the one above. The colouring of the images were done using alcohol-ink-based markers (list is below).
All of the 3 Magnolia stamps I used for this card are available from Magnolia-licious on-line store. Diana has a wonderful selection of both full-size and mini-size stamps. Check out also her selections of dies--from Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia, Cheery Lynn and Marianne Design--and other crafting supplies. Beside the discounted prices, you also earn store credits for future purchases.
I love my dies!!! I adore this Memory Box one they called Chloe Stem--I used 3 diecuts to make the white bloom at the top more 3-dimensional. The wings of the dragonfly (using another Memory Box die) are from white translucent vellum. The pink flower was made using Crealis Creative Flower No.2 dies. I used the Spellbinder Rose Creation dies for the aqua flower.
