Just Magnolia Challenge 8 - Sketch


Hi everyone, hope you've all had a good weekend. I had a fantastic time demonstrating at the Craft Barn's Extravaganza all day Saturday and Sunday and meeting lots of lovely people and also some blogging friends which made the weekend even more special (hello to Barbara, I know you're out there! :D).

This week on Just Magnolia there's a great sketch by Rach, thanks Rach, I love your sketch, really enjoyed working with it and will definitely use it again. I've stamped this sweet little cherry Tilda image which I've coloured with markers and then cut out. The background paper is 'Cherry Amore' by Doodlebug which is so pretty that I didn't want to hide any of it with the circles so I cut the circle element from red Bazzil card with my scalloped and plain nesties one inside the other to create the frame (the smaller circle is off centre so that I had room to put in the eyelet). I threaded some Bazzil tulle through the eyelet and round the back and tied a bow at the side. I shaped the image a bit with my fingers and attached to the card with gel glue, did some faux stitching with a white gel pen then added some Stickles and a rub on sentiment to finish. TFL. Chris x

Hi Chris, this is lovely - I especially like how you've off-set your circle, what a clever idea! It was great to see you again on Saturday. Thomas stayed asleep all the way around the shop (which really isn't suited to buggies!) and only woke when I was queueing to pay!
