Tilda with Trumpet White Challenge @ Magnolia-licious


Hello Dearest Readers,

Happy Tuesday to each of you! I hope this post finds each of you well and happy!

Did you know that Magnolia-licious is now carrying From the Hollow Fairy Stamps as well as Saturated Canary Stamps? From the Hollow and Satruated Canary Stamps are both 20% off! Need a little Christmas gift idea? Well, these stamps would make such wonderful stocking stuffers (even in YOUR own stocking! LOL)

Today begins a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Our new challenge is to create a card or project that is

White


We would like to see your predominantly white colored card or similar project. You may add just a touch of another color. The Design Team has lovely inspirational examples for you! Check them out on the Challenge Blog and their personal blog for details! Here is my example:



For my card, I chose to use one of the new Magnolia Waiting for Christmas Collection Stamps entitled Tilda with Trumpet. I thought she was just the cutest little thing! I love the way her body is positioned.

I chose to dry emboss snowflakes to the background and then apply all of the die cuts above that. There are dies from Joy Crafts, Frantic Stamper, Cheery Lynn, and Marianne Design. I thought I'd add a bit of lace and found this lace with the ribbon sewn into it. Great! I now had an accent of red to match the Tilda! A pretty bow and pearls finish off the card. I did choose to elevate the Tilda mat on Pop Dots so that it had some dimension, Then, I had some snowflakes punched from another project. I thought they'd look great around Tilda. I decided to add some of those and place a clear rhinestone in the center of each flake. Now, it is impossible to see, but I used my Spica pens to add subtle sparkle to the trumpet, buttons, and trim on the coat, sleeves, and hem. A little turn to the light and you can see the sparkle highlights. Here is a close up.



I chose to color the image with Distress inks this time as I liked the color of the green.

That is my design! I hope you like it and will find some inspiration in it, We would so love to see your lovely works of art at the Challenge Blog!

Love this white on white design and it features this sweet Tilda stamp so well. I love her eyelashes and I like her stance too. She is most definitely jammin out.

hugs,
