Magnolia Down Under Challenge #111

Crikey!!! Tilda's got a bunch of flamin' Galah's....

Hahahahahah couldn't resist a bt of Aussie slang for my Magnolia Down Under Challenge card this week!!  The theme is Texture... we wanna see some different and interesting things whacked on your cards/creations.  For my texture I have used some Hesian or some people might called it burlap?? anyway the peice I had was old and a creamy yellow colour so I chopped a bit off and chucked it in a bucket with some Parisan Essence - you know the stuff that you make gravey with? anyway it stains the fabric... So here is my very Australian themed Textured card, I hope you love it as much as me:-)

So what a Galah?? It's an Australian Native Bird, and actually one of my favourites.  They are a little bit like a parrot and come from the Cockatoo family.  Galah's are a gorgeous Grey and Pink in colour. So for my Galah's I have used the cute little Tilda's Birds and coloured them so that they look a little like Galah's!!  In the next picture I've given you a little bit of a close up and I've actually managed to capture some sparkles this week:-) heheheheh Yay for me:-)

I'm really looking forward to seeing what textures you girls and guys bring to your creations this week:-) It's just awesome begining able to see so much creativeness each and very week:-) I love being part of the Magnolia Down Under Family!!
