Just Magnolia - Ribbons & Bows

Hiya guys, well today is my last day before I go back to work, goodness knows how I'm gonna get up in the morning after having 6 weeks of fun and lazy days with the kids...lol!!!

Oakey doakey, here's my card/s for this weeks Just Magnolia challenge. The reason for two cards same image is that I've been trying to get along with Sansador....again...not too pleased with the results so nothing new there.

The first card was coloured the easy way with a mix of Derwent Inktense and Karisma Aquarelle pencils paintbrush and water. The papers are BG and MME, hey check out the stitching......I seem to be getting a tad more adventurous with my sewing machine now....lol!!! SU Sentiment and Glimmer Misted flowers.
For this image I coloured using the same pencils as above but tried Sansador and papers stumps....again....me thinks I'm gonna give up now or maybe get some Poly pencils. Papers are Basic Grey "mellow" sentiment is SU.
Righty-Oh, better carry on with the dreaded hous*****...oopsss nearly said it then...you know that word us crafters don't like....lol!!

Enjoy your day and many thanks for popping by,
ttfn, luv 'n' hugs xx vicki xx

Fabulous cards, beautiful Tilda and wonderful papers.
Could it be your paper stumps, rough them up a bit with sandpaper, also some card stock have a rough side and a smooth side, make sure you have the smooth side.

Vicki -

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog & leave such a nice comment. You really make some beautiful cards! You're tissue flowers are pretty nifty as well - I just may have to give them a try sometime.

Thanks again--
