Happy Monday everyone!!
Thank you for visiting me again, I am so Blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful Blogging Friends, who encourage me to use my talent, which is a Gid-given gift. I remind myself over and over again, so that I find joy in sharing my ideas, and make someone happy with my cards.
Today I have tried to make my forst ever criss-cross card. It is easy to do, and I thank Just Magnolia, for making this chalenge for us. It gave me an opportunity to try this one. I was reluctant at first, but I had just finished colouring my Tilda, and knew what paper I wanted to use with it, so I could afford a try! :)
If you want to try this pattern yourself, go to Just Magnolia's challenge Blog, there is a wonderul video tutorial that explains it all.
I coloured Tilda with Copics and added Stardust and Mulled Lavender Stickles on her wings. The stickles on her dress is called Eucalyptus. You can find Tim Holtz Stickles for your projects at Roses on Paper. If you would like any colour that you don't see in stock, just take the time to e mail Summer, to check when it will be in. The paper I used to stamp my image on is Neenah Solar White. Thank you Sonja dear for giving me the opportunity to use these lovely stamps, and try out the cardstock and Magnolia paper (called Bubbles).
After I finished colouring, I cut around Tilda. After I had finished decorating the card, I propped her on the side.For added dimension, on the bottom half I used glue dots, but from her wings up I used foam dots.
After that, I stamped some extra bubbles and after I coloured them I cut around and glue-dotted them on the other side, as if these are bubbles that Tilda just blew.
I embellished with lace ribbon, and a lovely flower that was also a gift from Sonja. Huggies for you dear. I used a Basic Grey brad in the middle, and some flourishes that I did using the Marianne Designs die that my brother and SIL sent me for my coming Birthday. Thank you sweeties :) You're the best! Can't wait to see you in 5 weeks' time :)
On the flourishes, I added a couple of matching gems.
The jotting panel has more bubbles, as you can see. I love this set of Magnolia stamps, they look cool together :) I distressed the edges with Milled Lavender and Dusty Corduroy Distress Ink, and added faux stitching with a fine black marker and Thank you sentiment.
I hope you let me know what you think of my first criss-cross card, I am also thankful for each comment, everytime... you make my day.
Blessings and I pray that you have a marvellous week. By the way, I recieved a lovely surprise Birthday gift from lovely Iris on Saturday. I will show you a picture
(when I have time to take it) of the lovely goodies! Thank you sweetie :)
