I was asked a little while ago if I wantet to be a guest designer for
Magnolia Down Under Challenges in February.
I think maybe it was a pity-offer because of some bad luck I had
with contacting them after winning a challenge,
but I`m very honored, and happily accepted. :)
The challenge this week is titled "Love is in the air".
I made this card for a friend of mine, she has been sick
and in a lot of pain, and at the time the doctors still hadnt figured out
what was wrong with her. Its scary, cus its something in the brain,
that made her face hurt. So I figured she could use a little love.
The papers are from Magnolia. I have been wanting to do something
colorful and bright like this for a while. I dont know if this ended up
just how I wantet it, but I`ll try again. ;)
The tag comes out like this,
I have decorated it with cut out fans from Poppy design,
and seem binding ribbon from WOC and ribbon from Kutt Ut.
The pearls I got in my calendar.
The flowers are a mix of Prima, Petaloo and Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have used some flower-ribbon from Bikuben, and large pearls.
The tag is Magnolia, and I used twine from WOC, and a charm.
The heart doily i also got in my calendar.
Oh the horror of my handwrighting, I just hate it,
but nothing else fitted the card and the frame.
The frame is from Tim Holtz, I just love it.
The metal did not fit here, so I painted it. First with Crackle paint,
wethered wood, but it wasnt right either, and the paint
just came right off. Then I dabbed it in acrylic paint.
I used Crackle Accents to make the letters stick,
and give it back the crackled look.
The letters are from Cosmo Cricket, I think.
I have used Magnolia swirl dies, cheese cloth,
and a left over piece of pink bling.
Tilda is colored with Distress Inks. Woops,
look at that. Now as I am making this post, I see that I forgot
a little something in her hair. I`ll have to fix that before sending it.
I have used a bit of Stickles and Liquid Pearl.
