I´ve bouhgt some more Magnolia stamps. A member of Swedish Scrapbooking was selling her stamps as she didn´t use them anymore. I´m so happy that she didn´t throw them away. They are as good as new ones, one of them didn´t even seem to be used at all.
I can play with my new stamps as much as I like as the weather over here has turned out to crafting weather, cloudy days with some rain and small glimpses of the sun, lucky me. This time I´ve tried masking and making a background.
A pic from the inside as well. There´s some space for writing, not enough for me really as I always tend to write long stories, hehe.
I´ve managed to make a card for three challenges. Funky Fairies wanted to see something girly. I don´t know if my card is girly enough...I´ve never been that girly myself. And when I´ve looked at my sons schoolfriends many of the girls are so much more tougher nowadays, even though the carry small handbags. So this is my version of girly!
The fab sketch is from Simon Says Stamp and I really enjoyed playing with this one.
The flowers, animals and colours fits in for Cupcake Challenges; pink, green and brown (there´s some brown at the ribbon and sentiment tag). Although I´ve added some purple too :)
Stamps and inks: Tilda and backgound are from Magnolia, Inkido butterflies, Memories and Versa Color
Colouring: Derwent watercolour pens and Sakura pens for some glitter
Papers: Bazzill card stock, gorgoues pink downloads from Funky Fairies, Origami paper for leaves, rabbit and paper piecing
Misc: flower from The Scrapbook House, ribbon sticker Magenta, gems Panduro, sentiment tag from my stash
Tools: Nestabilities scalloped ovals, swirl die from Sissix, small flower punch Panduro, dies for leaves and rabbit are QK, unstitch tool for distressing
Hope you get a nice day!
