Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog - Magnolia Stamps!

Don't you just love yellows and purples together? And I think they match some of my favorite BasicGrey paper, Wisteria. Our challenge over at Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog this week was to create something using a Magnolia stamp and that was right up my alley! I had colored up this Tilda with Tulips by Magnolia earlier that I got from Summer at Roses on Paper and just hadn't put her together. By the way, Summer is a great place to get your Magnolia stamps from! Well, I took care of this baby today for this challenge!

Tilda with Tulips was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. I cut her out and used this gorgeous Wisteria paper as a background for her. I popped her up with some foam dots and sat her on this beautiful yellow ribbon. The flowers are punched with my Retro Flower punch for EK Success and I placed some BasicGrey Bling in the center of the flowers and on the bottom corner. The butterfly is my MS punch and I had to stickle the flowers, her socks, a tiny bit on the dress and on the butterfly wings. And a touch of glossy Accents makes her hair ribbon look smooth and silky.

I love how the flowers came out and I used some Smooch on the middle of them. Just so pretty!

I hope you all stop over at Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog and enter your Magnolia card with us! You get the chance to win a great Magnolia Stamp! Not much could be better than that! And make sure to visit my very talented Design Team sister's blogs and see their great creations! They're absolutely fabulous!

We have another rainy day here in Maine and it looks like the weekend isn't going to be much better. Maybe that will translate into some crafting time. We'll see. I hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll see you over at the blog!
