PDD Tuesday - Just Magnolia - Magnolia Down Under - The Sugar Bowl

Hello all! Today was another busy one.. but this time it was busy for the right reason, lol. I finally got a little crafting time!! Which is a good thing because today is my PDD Tuesday!

I have 2 cards to share with you today. The first one is for The Sugar Bowl and it is from a sketch by Judy.

It's been a while since I got to play with these Gorjuss stamps so I was really looking forward to inking one up. I think this particular one has to be my favourite. I coloured her using copic markers and added a little highlight to her cheeks with the Inkssentials White Gel Pen. Then I cut her out and mounted her on the circle I'd cut using my circle nestabilities. I inked the edges of all my papers with Vintage Photo distress ink.

I finally broke down and used one of the deeeeelish big white roses I recently bought from Tab's store. This was a huge breakthough for me as I like to hoard, lol!!! I also got the gorgeous trim and pearl top pins from Tabby Crafts. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy's Fall kit.


The second card I want to share is one I made for Just Magnolia's monthly challenge, which is to use Distressing on your project. I followed the sketch on Magnolia Down Under so I am entering it into their challenge too.

I coloured my Tilda using both copic markers and distress inks. I added Star Dust stickles to her wings and liquid applique to her hat. I've never used liquid applique before and was quite amused by how it exploded out when I put the heat gun on it, lol... yes, yes.. I'm easily amused!!

I inked the edge of my papers with distress ink and then distressed them using a Heidi Swapp distresser.  I also inked the edges of the white flowers with Pine Needles, to match the colour on my image.

Both cards were made using K & Company papers. For the first card I used McKenna and for the second card I used Bailey. The adhesive pearls on both cards are from my stash, the charm & spacers are from The Hobby House.

All linked supplies above are available @ Pez-A-Doodle Designs. Please do pop over to the other DT members blogs to see what wonderful creations they've been making.
