Just Magnolia Challenge 6 - Lets get in shape



Hi everyone, a card today for Just Magnolia Challenge where this week the theme is 'Lets Get in Shape' for a shaped card. There's fantastic inspiration as always from the DT, thank you ladies, I loved all your great ideas for shaped cards. My shape is I think called a tri shut card or something like that, there's a resource on how to make it on SplitCoast Stampers. The sweet Tilda with her huge bunch of roses was watercoloured with distress inks then cut out and she's been attached to the card front piece with dimension pads. I've made a punched border top and bottom from K&Co paper and done some stamping and sponging around the endges. The inside is stamped with a papermania flower border and lightly coloured and I've stamped on some flowers and added pearls then arranged them around the flower trail and sentiment die cut. Added the ribbons and some stickles to finish. Hope you all enjoyed your bank holiday weekend. Chris x

The colors are so pretty and feminine, but what is amazing is how you color those Tildas. Really beautiful art work, Chris.
