Bouquet of Roses

Hi everyone, hope you're all having a good Bank Holiday weekend.

My post today is for the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog. This week we were set a sketch challenge.

Here's my offering:-

I had this lovely DP by Making Memories "Vintage Rose Bouquet Crackle" which I thought would look really nice with the Magnolia Tilda with Bouquet of Roses image.

I stamped the image using Adirondack Pitch Black ink onto Canson Manga Art Board and coloured her in with my Copics - I had to miss off her feet so that she would fit nicely onto my large oval nestie - hope she doesn't mind too much!!!!

I mounted her onto a scalloped oval cut from green vellum. The dusky pink paper is the reverse side of the Making Memories DP. I've also cut some Sizzix flourishes in pink & green for the right top corner. The flowers are Prima with a spacer, the ribbon and "Made for You" charm are from my stash.

I enjoyed this sketch challenge and I'm really please with how she turned out.

Thanks for dropping by.

I don't think Tilda will mind about her feet. I was blog hopping today and saw a lady cut around the feet the slot them over the nestie before cutting it out, I'll have to find the link for you so you can have a look, Hugs Sarah B X
