Magnolia Down Under #29

I finally got to do the challenge on the Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog. Their theme is "Stamp with Another Use?!"... which means you take a  Magnolia stamp from one collection and use it for a different theme than other than the one it was intended for. I used Jam Tilda from the Yummy Collection and made a Valentines card.

I used BG's Two Scoops papers and pink Bazzil, and they have both been edged using Worn Lipstick distress ink. My images were coloured with copic markers. I added glossy accents, crackle accents and Star Dust stickles to the hearts, ribbon images and the trim on Tilda's clothes. I used my MS Two Dot punch to do the double border.

 Not using any flowers on this card was really hard for me but I decided that I wanted to use the accessory stamps that came with the Magnolia Winter Kit as I rarely get to use any accessory stamps that come in the kits. The card just looked a touch 'unfinished' to me so I added some adhesive pearls to break up the bare areas, lol.

I made the card to a sketch which was created by Kellie Winnell for a friendly challenge between herself and a friend. I liked the sketch so I gave it a go :) You can can see Kellie's post and sketch HERE

And I am also entering into A Spoonfull of Sugar's challenge with their theme Hearts.
