Blueberry Tilda

HI everyone, hope you’ve had a good weekend. A card today which was sent to my friend Jo, I know that she’s received it now so I can blog it. I coloured the sweet Blueberry Tilda with distress inks and added lots of stickles and copic glitter pen before cutting her out with an oblong nestabilities die. The background paper is Magnolia blueberry paper in such pretty colours and the scalloped die cut oblong and card blank are Core’dinations card. I added some purple tulle that I got from Tab’s lovely shop, some lilac gems in the corners and some faux stitching to finish off.
I also want to wish Magnolia Stamps all the best at the CHA show in Anaheim, California which started today. If you’re lucky enough to be attending they’d love you to pop into their stand and say hello. I’m sure it’s full of fairytale magic and I certainly wish I was lucky enough to be attending :). The new Magnolia Ink magazine is now available and full of fantastic inspiration from my DT friends, gorgeous projects and how to’s, I just got my copy so I’ll be busy wearing the print off it for a while :D. This might be a good time to show my projects from Magnolia Ink 1, will do that tomorrow probably. TFL.
