MDUC #38 & Just Magnolia #47

This week is a Sketch at Magnolia Down Under, which I changed just a little bit because I wanted to make an Easel card for the Just Magnolia!! So the little sentiment is at the bottom. So I hope you all like my card!!

So one of my besties bought a new big Cricut on the weekend, off eBay in US saved herself about $400AUD what a bargain!! She has the original one already which is you know... is little. So now she has two, I haven't even got one!! *I'm going a dark shade of green I think* Its a pity she has moved, its just a tad to far to go and just cut something out!!! So I'm thinking about getting one myself (only because I can't stand being green LOL) but I'm a little unsure of how much use it would actually get? I already have a Bigshot which I don't really use that much or as often as it could be, so would a Cricut be the same?? Decisions, Decisions:-) This is this weeks sketch:

and here's a close up of my water colouring with Distress Inks.... still having a few problems with it bleeding, and getting it to "shade" like I want!! (and I can't stay within the lines very well which is making it harder still LOL!!!)
Paper: Stampin' Up Kraft, Bazill, Basic Grey - Nook & Pantry
Embellishments: Flowers from Magnolia Down Under Store, Buttons, Ribbon, not so good machine stitching (LOL), Crystal Effects, White Gel Pen.
Stamps: Magnolia Ladybug Tilda Raising The Ceiling Collection 2010 & Stampin' Up
Colours: Water Colour with Distress Inks

  7. Wow – what a fabulous job you’ve done with the sketch.
    I've just bought myself a craft robo - now to find time to learn how to use it - LOL. It's like a cricut but you generate your own images via computer rather than needing cartridges!
    Thanx sooo much for joining us at MDUC this week.

  8. Your colouring looks fabulous, I can't see and problems. I am terrible at staying in the lines so that why I cut most of my images out, lol. Don't tell anyone :) Thanks for playing along with us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges!
