Sketch and Bookmark birthday card
It's my Niece Stephanie's birthday next week so thought I would kill two birds with one stone and make it a challenge entry as well. I've used the sketch from the Tickled Pink challenge, sketch and bookmark #2. As she's an avid reader I know she'll enjoy using the book mark. She's had a stressful couple of weeks preparing for her last presentation for a Masters degree in Chemistry so I'm more than sure she'll be letting her hair down on her birthday. I will also be entering this card into Just Magnolia challenge 'In the Garden'.
Well I've managed to buy 3 issues of Magnolia Ink, but no luck in finding the first Christmas issue lol. I had a quick look on Ebay and found they were selling for £30 or more :-( Think I can live without having the first issue in my collection. I'd rather put the money towards the exciting prospect of enlarging my Magnolia stamp collection.
I've coloured Tilda and the Magnolia Tree mainly with Pro Markers with maybe a couple of Copic colours, they blend well together, I'm not a purist when it comes to brands, they all work the same. I've used very soft pattern pastel papers, lace, flowers, and heart embellishments and to finish I made a couple of bead pins.
Thank you for stopping by X
