Marvelous Magnolia

Hi,
I was inspired to enter the challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia by Linda Levoir, one of the DT members. She has made a wonderful card for the challenge and you can see it on her blog Sticky with Glitter . I only have three Magnolia Tilda stamps at the moment so I chose one which looked fairly simple to colour as I intended to try something new. Instead of using my Promarkers I thought I would try water colouring with Distress Inks for a change.

Card Recipe
Cardstock - Kraft
Papers - Doodlebug Designs (spotted)
Distress Inks and waterbrush
Stickles
Flowers and lace - WOC
Corner Dies - Marianne Designs LR0280
Frame Die - Memory box Small Felicity Frame
 
As it's my first attempt at water colouring with DI's I don't think it turned out too bad. I know what to change for next time now. The challenge at Marvelous Magnolia requires lace in your project and as I've almost covered mine up here's a close up just to prove it's there, lol.
I'd like to enter this in to the following challenges:
Marvelous Magnolia - Lovely Lace
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Through The Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
Scribble & Scrap - Anything Goes
A Creative Romance - Something New (Water colour technique)
 
Well that's it from me, hope you've all had a lovely day and looking forward to the weekend.
 
See you soon,
Lorraine

What a lovely card Lorraine, you are brave trying out the distress inks, something I've wanted to do myself for a while but not gathered the courage to do yet :P I think it's a fantastic job for a first attempt and a very pretty card. Love the Tilda you've chosen and she looks so happy and sunny in yellow. I know where you're coming from about covering the lace, it's something I constantly do myself, but I think you can see more of yours than mine hehe. Thanks for joining our Lovely Lace challenge at Marvelous Magnolia and good luck :) xx

I applaud you for the DI watercoloring. Although I've tried it a bit, I'm more comfortable with my markers. :-) Your colors just pop and bring a smile to my face. Lovely job with this sweet little princess. Hugs!
