After the great luck I had last week winning blog candy at the Sugar Bowl, I decided to give a few more challenges a try. Magnolia stamps are among my favorite stamps and I am an admirer of the Just Magnolia challenge blog. That design team has some impressive cards. The theme for the Week 18 challenge is friendship. Basically anything that you would give to a friend qualifies to enter. The prize is a Basic Grey Sultry collection pack from The Hobby House. I used this Cherry Tilda that I got from Amy over at Splitcoast Stampers. I have had this cherry paper in my stash for a while trying to think of a way to use it. The sketch is modified from a sketch a found at SCS. I tried to distress the edges of the blue cardstock by rubbing my scissors on it but it didn’t work out quite as I had expected. Next I resorted to some white chalk and paper piercing. The images is colored with prismacolor pencils and gamasol. (I’m trying to decide if I want to move on to copic markers or not??) Let me know what you think.
