Distressing at Magnolia Down Under

Hey Magnolia Fans

This fortnight at Magnolia Down Under, the theme is Distressing.  Yep those little tattered or inked up edges are what we are after!!

For my card, which I have just finished this morning, (as I have been SUPER busy and no time for crafting) I have made a CAS card... a very Clean and Simple card to be exact! but I am rather pleased with how it turned out.  My colouring is a bit rusty so my blending could be better, but it seems to look worse in the photo than in real life.... Oh well! I tried!

So here is my CAS card, I hope you love it as much as me:-)

Favourite Magnolia Stamp at Magnolia Down Under

Hi Everyone

Seems like forever since I posted on my blog... and I guess it was last month, so it has been a while! I seem to be only making one card a month now and it's for MDUC, which is ok because I love my Magnolia Stamps

Anyway, this fortnight theme is Your Favourite Magnolia Stamp.... so I have used a new favourite - Tilda with Maggie the Monkey.  This is actually the first time I have used her, BUT I adore all the gorgeous cards I have seen with this particular stamp, and I just had to have her for my collection, even though I don't get much chance to play with those hundreds of Magnolia stamps now. So I hope you love my card as much as I do

My Paper is Magnolia, and Prima scrap I found and used for my Chicken Wire die... the die is from My Favourite Things. My Leaf is a Doo Hickey and cut out with I think Graphic 45... another bit of scrap I had lying beside my Big Shot! My Postage stamps are just some wooden blocks that I picked up in London... a very LONG time ago.... I must go there again... to London that is LOL and of course Tilda and Maggie are coloured with my copics.  My Monkey turned out a little more Polka Dot than I wanted... I guess since I am not colouring as much my skills have dropped a bit.  But it still looks cute, and that's all that really matters right?
