One of my favorite places online has added a challenge blog today! They have the greatest selection of Magnolia stamps I've seen anywhere as well as lots of other items...namely my new favorite stamps ~ Kraftin Kimmie. I just love spending time there dreaming about all the stuff I'd love to have. A nice $50.00 prize would buy a lot of Kraftin Kimmies, considering 7 Kids prices are the best around too.
I'm thrilled to enter their first challenge and can't wait to see who wins...me pleeeeez! I love altered art and distressing so this was a tiny return to my roots and an experiment for a momentous occasion. Good luck & thanks to 7 Kids!!
My card was created with a base layer of Bo Bunny Double Dots with additional antiqued & distressed layers sewn with a scribbly free-form stitch on a khaki Bazzill cardstock 5.5" square card. I made 1" polka dot button with 1" round Bazzill chips which I covered with polka dot scraps from my stash, added a bit of cluny lace & pink Bo Bunny DD ribbon to this sweet little Ladybug Tilda (purchased at 7 Kids, of course.)
I stamped Tilda on Neenah cardstock and hand colored her with Copics and a little added white highlight. Tilda is pop-dotted on a Spellbinder's cut scalloped oval that was stamped with Magnolia bees & handcolored. The bee wings were coated with an irridescent gel pen to give them bling. I intended to post Tilda tonight but my photos show a mistake the old eyes missed so I'm correcting and will post on Thursday a.m.
