Just Magnolia 1st sketch challenge

There's a fabby new challenge blog that has just started, if you haven't already you really need to pop over and check out the wicked sketch and delicious goodies that are up for grabs in celebration of Just Magnolia's first challenge.

I really did enjoy making this card, it did take a while but I'm quite happy with the way it's turned out. I love the colours on these Basic Grey "Mellow" papers. The Magnolia image has been coloured in with....I wonder if you can guess..........mmmmm.....yep Copics, again. The swirls are a sizzix die cute, flowers are a mix of Prima and some from my stash, Dew Drops. Sentiment is Autumn Leaves. Spacers and the cute lil girl charm are from Jill at The Hobby House, a fab site to order from, excellent delivery and customer service.



Here's a close up of that cute lil charm, please don't look to close at my colouring, I'm still not all that confident as yet with Copics, eventhough I've been using them for about a year now.

Thanks so much to all those who gave me advice regarding the music on my blog. Hubby thinks he's sussed it now, it's to do with the bandwidth and eventhough we paid to have extra bandwidth, it seems that other people can download the songs which uses up my bandwidth....grrrrr...hopefully it's sorted now though.

Well whatever your all up to this weekend, I hope you all enjoy yourselves xx vicki xx

Annika said...

You get amazing results with copics, that card is absolutely fabulous again! And I admire your sense of colours, what a lovely combination!
I'm soooooo drooling over copics but I really can't justify the cost at the moment...especially considering that I have pretty much all ProMarker colours...And loads of Prismacolour pencils ...and distress inks ... and so on.
Still - looking at your work - I NEED copics! :'(
Hugs,
Annika
