Magnolia Sketch Challenge 160


I was too tired to post last night. Yesterday during the day I had dropped my ring into the snow. I knew the general area, but not exactly where. Wasn't my brightest move as I spent the almost 5 hours scraping through the snow bit by bit till it was finally found. Never fool around with your ring! It's a bad habit of mine. So needless to say by the end of the day I was pooped from being out in the cold hunched over scraping at mounds of snow!
Ok , today's cards is for sketch challenge 160 which was from yesterday. In my defence it was done yesterday. I just didn't feel like posting it.
recipe:
stamps: Magnolia
ink: SU black, Soft Sky, Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue
Paper: Stamper Select White, Old Olive, Soft Sky DP, Not Quite Navy, Hunter Green
Other: Exacto Knife, Copic Markers, Color Pencils, Twinkling H2O's, White gel Pen, Stickles
I used Zindorf's card as a spring board! I used the same colors as her and then went from there. I colored my picture pieces and then cut them out. They were colored with a mix of Copic ( all) Then the fence was enhanced with color pencil, and the ground with Twinkling H2O's. They were then cut out and put aside. Next I took Whisper White, brayered it with Soft Sky and sponged with Not Quite Navy and Bashful Blue. Swirl clouds were then stamped on. The rest is just put together with swirl clouds added and white gel pen stitching.
hugs
Sophie

sorry about the hunt for your ring but glad you found it! I have a bad habit of taking it off for putting lotion on my hands...one time I had thrown it in the trash good thing I realized before it was too late! LOVE the scene on your card, too sweet!! would make a great Easter card.

Oh Sophie, so sorry about your ring but so glad you found it!! That must have been horribly frustrating! Your card is adorable - you are such an amazing artist, the detail you put into your coloring always blows me away!

Okay that's IT!!! When is the next train to Petawawa!!!?? My Copic skills are limited!! I haven't figured out how you blend them so beautifully! When I use my colourless blender, it just takes colour away and makes it look watery, it doesn't mix the two together so flawlessly like yours. KWIM?? I'm always in awe of your work! Just beautiful!!

I dropped one of my wedding rings in the toilet once...not a used toilet! It´s my biggest fear to drop the ring, it´s made from my grandads wedding ring.
Love your Magnolia cards..inspiration comes at once...
Have to go and make some cards...hAnglar cards though. The hAnglar clubkit will arrive next week in my mailbox!!!!!!!!!!!!!
