Another Easel Card

Happy Sunday Everyone,

Magnolia Down Under Challenge #25 - Distressed

I have incorporated this in the Magnolia-licious Highlites October Challenge - Easel Card

Hope you all join in the challenge, remember you don't have to use a Tilda or Edwin, as long as you use a Magnolia Stamp. This month the fantastic sponsor is Gabby from The Soap Dish with some Yummie Handmade Soap. You will want to stock up on this beautiful soap, makes the perfect Christmas gift.

This is my 2nd Easel Card and I am loving it. I will be making a lot more in the future. I decorate the inside of my cards, making an Easel card saves time & paper, now I only have to decorate one side. Template here & directions here. I resized my card to 6"x6". Thanks to Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge & Suzanne Dean.

My Niece is turning 21 in a few weeks and she is a really girly girl, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make a her a card with a shabby girly twist. I used Magnolia Tilda with Lilac's. Thought she was perfect for this paper I bought a few years ago fback when I was scrapbooking. I stamped her out 3 times and cut parts of her to add some dimension. I coloured her with my Copics, masked her, airbrushed the background a little, added some diamond stickles, diamond glaze & a little flower soft on the lilacs. I have a wonderful distressing kit I purchased a while back from Making Memories, I mainly use the distressing edger and sanding block, perfect for this challenge.

I just received my first delivery of flowers from Bizzy Bec's and they are the most beautiful flowers ever, thanks Bec.
