Just Magnolia Challenge ~ Ribbons & Bows

Magnolias Christmas 2009 - Page 063 

Hi Everyone! Boy, what a wet and windy weekend we are having here! You should have seen me on the soccer fields all bundled up in my layers of polar fleece and rain gear! Certainly not optimal weather for playing or watching soccer! Within about 30 seconds of being on the field all the kids were just covered in mud! We had exciting matches and won our games so tomorrow we are playing for the medals. My eldest scored the winning goal in his first match so basically, I have no voice because I was screaming so loud “WHOO HOO!”

Enough of my soccer ramblings! Here is a card I made a few weeks ago.  I had bought the trees and sled stamps a little while ago because I thought they would be great for a little Tilda Scene. I airbrushed the sky with my Copic system. Then I colored in and added Liquid Appliqué to the trees and I just love the effect it gave. The snow is covered in glitter and it just sparkles! Because the scene is quite big, the rest of the card is very simple and I just added some ribbon to it. I haven’t had the chance to post it until now and it fits in perfectly with this week’s Just Magnolia challenge which is to use ribbons and bows! This is one of my favorite challenges but I don’t always get the chance to play along! I am happy this fit the bill!

  • Stamps: Magnolia from last year’s Christmas and winter collection
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: Bazzill Bling, SU Black & Blue Bayou
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: May Arts Ribbon

Have a great evening! Thanks for stopping by and for all you lovely comments. They brighten up my day!
