Just Hanging Around !!!


Today I would like to show you this cute card I've made using two Magnolia Stamps - Dangling Tilda and Elegant Heart Ribbon.  I've had these stamps for ages and this is the first time I've used them!!!  I have to confess that I got the idea of hanging Tilda from the ribbon when looking through the lastest Magnolia Ink Magazine, Kim made a lovely card using the same two stamps.  Thanks for the inspiration Kim. 

 I coloured the image using my Copic Markers and also added some Shimmerz Paints for a bit of extra sparkle.  Here's a close-up.


Stamps: Dangling Tilda and Elegant Heart Ribbon from Magnolia
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black.  Ranger Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet
Colour Medium: Copic Markers and Shimmerz Paints
Papers: Magnolia and G.C.D. Studios
Card: From my stash
Tools: Nestibilities Labels 8 and Nellies Multi Frame Dies Flower with Sizzix Big Shot
Embellishments: Button, Ribbon and Heart Charm all from my stash

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Really Reasonable Ribbons Challenge - Heart Theme
Craft Your Days Away - Love Theme
Paper Cutz Challenge - It's Your Choice
Stamp Something - Cute Somethings
Sweet Stamping Challenge - Clear as Mud (use brown and one other colour)
