Just Magnolia -- Chasing Butterflys




Hi everyone and Happy Saturday :) Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. My card today is my entry for this week's Just Magnolia Challenge. Our challenge this week was a sketch challenge. I love this sketch, it was so fun to work with.

I began by stamping my background image (from Magnolia stamps) as well as Tilda and Edwin with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto PTI cardstock and colored them with copics. I then cut out Tilda and Edwin. I added pink Stickles to Tilda's dress. I next created my card base (which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2) out of SU's Barely Banana cardstock. I added Pretty in Pink on top of that followed by my design paper from K & Co.'s new Wild Raspberry line (I love this new line :) ). I then adhered my background image to my SU cardstock and then to my card base. I adhered Tilda and Edwin to the card base with dimensionals. I used my Fiskar's swirl punch for three of the corners and added pearls. I added Primas and pearls to the top right corner. I then used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch for the butterflies. What do you think?

In other exciting news, I cannot wait, tomorrow I am going to a copics class taught by the one and only Suzanne Dean. I am so excited! Suzanne's coloring is amazing and I can't wait to learn from her. I'll be sure to share some tips and tricks with you :)

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you back here Monday with another project.

Big Hugs, Christine :)

Oh Christine, it was funny that I put these two holding hands too when I tried to do a layout on a card yesterday and decided to use another stamp instead. Nice to see yours turned out so well. Your coloring is wonderful. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

Wow!!! I love how they just leap off the card like they're chasing butterflies. So much implied movement.

I also love all the little touches you added. They all add so much to the card.

Lastly, I can't imagine why you'd need to take a Copics class, but enjoy it anyway!
