Cute Card Thursday.

This week there was no set theme instead we were told to make a card based on a sketch by Katharina, thanks Katharina.

This is my card, it features one of my very first Magnolia stamps, Tilda with basket. I bought 4 of the Tilda stamps last week and this is my first card using one of them.

Tilda was stamped with grey versafine ink and coloured with Polychromos and sansodor, before being matted onto a cream pearlescent oval. The square white card was covered with a dotty paper from the Pastel Designer pack by Paper Mania. This was straight cut at the top and sides but scalloped at the bottom. A piece of organza ribbon was knotted and secured onto this background, before the image was added. A sentiment on pearlescent card finished it off.

The person who has their name drawn this week will get 4 gorgeous Maggie stamps donated by Sally from Bootiful Stampz.

Sweet! I like the knotted organza, keep meaning to try a knot with no 'ends' and forgetting - looks fab!

A lovely card again Sue. I have not actually seen a Tilda stamp so can I ask something? And don't laugh if I am wrong LOL

Are those ears I can see there? X

Sue said...

Karen I must admit they look like ears on this one but in fact Tilda has wings.
