DVD pencil tin

Woohoo, last week my Magnolia stamps finally arrived! They are gorgeous. I can't wait to do more stuff with them. Ordering from the Swedish site can be a bit of a pain, It took over a month between when I ordered and when they arrived. Shipping was actually really fast and cheap all things considered. Anyhoo, I wanted to make something fun and feminine for my daughter. She never seems to have enough pencils, they always disappear on her so I figured I would make pencil tin to keep an arsenal of sharpened pencils. The main image is from the new September release of Magnolia. The background is Oh so Lovely. Both images are colored with Copic markers and the backgrounds are airbrushed with the markers. The Magnolia girl is enhanced with Faber and Castel color pencils, Solvent and twinkling H2O's. Spica glitter pens are used to add shine to the girl. Judikens MicroGlaze is added to protect the surface from the handling that it is sure to receive. Nestability scallop rectangle was used to cut the girls image and for masking. Hope you enjoy today's project, hopefully I will be back tomorrow with more!
