I would like to extend a huge thank you and welcome to my blog's new followers! I am delighted to have you along on my crafting journey! I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I wish I could say mine has been, but my little one has caught a virus and is covered in a rash, so we are quarantined at the moment. He is handling it all very well, and had I not told him he is sick, he might not have known. He also very generously passed his little bug on to me, so I spent last night with a fever (but, luckily no rash).
Enough moaning and on to something far more exciting. A few weeks ago, I won a guest design spot at Simply Magnolia! The challenge this fortnight is fancy folds with a friendship theme. Here is my inspiration piece:
I used Seeding Tilda, which was a wonderful Christmas gift from my in laws. I wished I looked as cute as her while gardening! I masked her with Root Cellar Door, minus the root cellar door. I really liked the stones and flowers on this image, but it just didn't seem to make sense to scatter seeds in front of a door, so I masked it out. It also doesn't make any sense to wear white boots to work in the dirt; silly Tilda. The images were stamped on 300g hot pressed watercolour paper and coloured with distress inks (tumbled glass, tattered rose, peacock feathers, walnut stain, antique linen, frayed burlap, pumice stone, scattered straw, victorian velvet, and bundled sage) and a watercolour pencil for skin tone.
A huge thank you to the gals at Simply Magnolia for inviting me to guest design! If you haven't been already, make sure to pop over to the Simply Magnolia challenge blog to see what the very talented DT has come up with. I hope you will be able to join in the fun!
This project is also for the following challenges:
Just Magnolia - anything goes with optional doily
Midweek Magnolias - bling it on
Tilda's Town - use a magnolia accessory stamp with Tilda or Edwin
Thanks for stopping in and for taking the time to leave me a comment - good, bad or indifferent. I always love the chance to visit you back! Have a great week!
