Last night I was having a read of my google reader and the challenge from the TOMIC challenge blog caught my eye and I just had to join in!
Their challenge this week is No character stamps and embossing. it sounded like such a good one as I have loads of the gorgeous little scene type magnolia's that I always want to put a character with.
I decided on this one, 'Welcome to a lovely new home', isn't it sweet? and I stamped it on an old book page before colouring it up with my promarkers.
Then I cut it out with my lacey circle nesties.
The next thing on my list for the challenge was the embossing. I chose to do use my brick embossing folder on some kraft paper. I gently coloured the edges of my bricks with my sandstone promarker to make them pop out even more.
Now I totally love my new swirl with flower leaf Doo Hickey die, its gorgeous. I cut it and distress inked the leaf with a teeny bit of faded jeans and forest moss, then the swirl with forest moss. I then placed it so that it kinda snuggled the house stamp and added a couple of flowers from my stash to the leaf cuts on each side.
Then I popped on a few teeny punched flowers to the little loops on my nesty, added a punched heart where the swirls crossed and a little computer generated sentiment that I punched out with my SU Jewellery tag (...yup, I use it a lot!! its one of my favs!!).
And the exciting news........:) :) :) :)
Tracy over at Dies to Die For emailed me a couple of weeks ago and asked me to join her DT!!! I am so excited and its twice as nice as I get lots of bits from Dies to Die For because Tracy always has an awesome stock of the MFT Die-namics which I lurve!!
