I don't have many magnolia stamps so I had to use one of the 2 I recently required so decided to see if I could combine this challenge with another magnolia challenge and Just Magnolia have a sketch. I am getting more use to following sketches and am often pleased with the reults so thiught I would give it a go.
I must admit that as this collar is for a bottle of wine for my father in law I didn't want it too flowery so that did cause me some problems deciding how to interpret the sketch and not make it girly especially using Tilda. It's not quite my choice but I took it into the kitchen and put it around a bottle neck and my hubby sort of laughed and said very good and then asked if there was only the wine for his dad still to get so I presume that means its ok,well I hope so anyway.
Magnolia down under have a challenge to use a stamp for an occassion other than its original design use so as I have now found out this magnolia was originally for valentines day and as I'm using it for christmas it will count for that challenge.
Playdate cafe have a colour theme of blue, cream and gold and as these are the colours I've used plus a little white and pink white pearls and pink hearts I think I can enter that too. Creatalicious wanted something old- the cream pearl paper is from an old envelope I was sent a card in, something new, well the stamp I aquirred about 6 weeks ago so its fairly new, something torn, I tore the pearl paper and something blue , I have a blue base colour and tilda along with blue glitter on Tilda's boots and skeleton leaves, which I cut and punched to make the pointsettia and smaller flowers.
One stop craft challenge have a theme of recycled and I will enter that challenge as my cream pearl paper is from a recycled envelope.
