Pink, Green & Yellow at Magnolia-licious


Hi everyone! It's my turn to host the Colour Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and here's a picture to inspire you to use Pink, Green and light Yellow/Ecru in your creations.


I've inked Tilda Catching Stars from the new Princes and Princesses Collection available at Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious.  Tilda is stamped on MIC blending card stock, coloured with Copics and then cut out.  Copic colours used are E000, E00, E01, E11, E13, R20, RV10, RV21, RV23, Y000, Y13, Y17, C0, C2 & B000.  I played with mixing the C0, C2, Y000 & B000 for Tilda's socks and shoes to create an interesting shade of green which ended up really light and soft.  I also used 2 Magnolia Doohickey Dies for my card.  One along the bottom edge and the other to create a a swirl which I wound around the pink polka dot paper and attached at the back.  Both dies are currently out of stock but let Diana know if you're wanting them.  They will make a wonderful addition to your collection! Papers are My Mind's Eye and the rhinestone and pearl embellishments from my stash (can't remember where I bought them).  I kept the card really simple but wanted to have some fun with paper design by using swirls and polka dots and more solid colours this time.  Hope you like it!


I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Be sure to visit my teamies for a look at their fabulous work.  Can't wait to see what you come up and don't forget Dina has a $25 gift certificate for one lucky winner.

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous week.

Hugs,
Maria
