Magnolia Down Under - Ssshh It's a Secret

Time for another Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week it's a secret! Yes that's right we'd like you to hide a little secret tag or panel on your creation!

Of course we have a wonderful prize on offer for the winner of our challenge! Kellie at Tickled Pink Stamps is giving our lucky winner the Winner Tilda stamps and Zig Zag Doo Hickey Die.

I've used cute Sleeping Baby Tilda this week - she is coloured with copics and I've added some clear spica pen for a touch of sparkle but unfortunately it's photographed a silver grey colour and not like that IRL.

My secret hidden element is a tag with the tulle end peeking out at the top. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the metal embellishments have been in my stash for ages. The cardstock is SU Almost Amethyst and White and I've added some pattern paper from Magnolia.

The sentiment on my tag and on the card are both SU stamps.

I'd like to enter my card in these challenges:-

TOMIC - Bingo (Metal, Ribbon,Magnolia Paper)
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
CES Challenge - New Beginings

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to drop by Magnolia Down Under to check out the creations by the rest of the amazing DT!

Colour Create - Burgundy, Green, Cream & Gold

Hi Everyone,

Time for our next Colour Create Challenge and this time our colours of Burgundy, Green, Cream and Gold (Perfect for Christmas) have been chosen our hardworking Team Leader Sharon with the optional extra being add some dimension!
Here is the pic that Sharon chose to inspire us with:-

And for all those wonderful bloggers who chose to enter the challenge we have a mystery prize this week!

I've decided to go with something a little different this challenge and coloured my Tilda using a tutorial I saw
that looks like the colouring is done using distress inks. I loved the way my image turned out but it hasn't photographed as well as I would have liked... it looks a little washed out.... but IRL it looks much better :)

The paper I've used are some SU pattern papers that I've had for a very long time and all other items have come from my stash including the roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The gold bell charm I found while looking around my local haberdashery store.

Thanks for stopping by,

Magnolia Down Under - Sketch Challenge #118

Good Morning Everyone,

Wow our summer storm season has certainly started here in Queensland this week, there is thunder rumbling now as I'm typing my post!

We have a great sketch for you this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges created by our very own wonderful DT Eulanda :)  We also have a fabulous prize on offer from our terrific sponsor Tilda's Town who ship free worldwide - you've gotta love that!

Here is the picture of the sketch - I hope you'll be able to join us!

I've chosen to use this gorgeous new image - that I received on Thursday in the new Magnolia Sweet Christmas Kit - she is called Sweet Christmas Tilda and looks so cute in her PJ's.

I've coloured her with copics and used the papers from My Minds Eye Lost and Found "Blush" 6x6 Pad. My flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid and Magnolia, the nestabilities and labels die are from Spellbinders and the Leaf Die is from Cheery Lyn. The snowflake charm, ribbon, lace and pearls are all from my stash!

It's little hard to see but all layers are inked with Tim Holtz distress ink and I've added a small snowflake stamp to the background.

I'd like to enter my card in these challenges:-

Charisma Cardz - In Stitches
Wild Orchid Crafts - Christmas Fun

Colour Create Aqua, Lime & White

So sorry to be posting my Colour Create Challenge card so late but I've had a terrible time with my computer, it's been having repairs for a week and I had to load all my programs again :(  To make matters worse it was my turn to choose the colours - sorry girls! I chose Aqua Lime Green and White with the optional extra being to add a butterfly.

Here is the inspiration pic:-

Before I tell you about my card - I must give full credit to the amazing Kathrin who designed this card and you can find Kathrin's tutorial here.

I've carefully holepunched to flowers at the base of the candles in the cake and used Dimensional Magic to give the balloon a glossy finish.

I've used copics to colour my Birthday Tilda and had a go at adding a spotted background.

The little box on the base of the card contains more candles and has a little present charm attached.

I hope you've had time to stop by Colour Create and check out the wonderful creations by the rest of the DT. We'd love you to join us and we are currently in search of some new DT members so make sure you check it out!

Liz Stampz - Sketch Challenge

Good Morning All,

I received at lovely email a couple of weeks ago from Laura at Lia Stampz asking me to join their DT... Thanks Laura :)

Here is my first card using one of the new images called "Tisha" - the challenge this fortnight is a sketch challenge and here is the sketch designed by our DT Mo :-

I've used Black and Purple Cardstock along with some PP from Magnolia. My Tisha image is colour with copics and it's a little hard to see but the cloud has a touch of stickles. I inked the doily with black ink and my flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts. The ribbon and charm were from my stash :)

If you don't have a Lia Stampz Digi you are still welcome to join the challenge. Hoping you'll be able to join us this week - Thanks for stopping by,
