Yesterday was my good friend, Alison's birthday and here is a picture of the card that I made for her.
As with all my Magnolia cards, I had great fun making it. The images are Sweet Tilda, Tree Corner, Open Gate, Tilda's Butterflies and Bees. It has all been coloured with Copics, which I won't list for you because you'd simply be reading for too long - I seemed to have nearly all my pens out on the table by the time I'd finished!
With 20/20 hindsight (always a major benefit! Lol!) I would have watercoloured the background I created with the various stamps, simply because I think it would have been quicker and easier but I'm happy with the result I achieved. Not so happy with the dull photos taken on a dull day. Here's another one of the inside of the card.
Anyway, since it has a summery feel to it, I thought I'd enter it for the Lili of the Valley Challenge. Also, because it has butterflies and flowers on it, I'm entering it for the Sir Stampalot Challenge
The weekend away? Alison and I went to an Art from the Heart Journalling 1 weekend. It started on Friday evening and finished on Sunday afternoon and was packed with information and fun. Dyan taught us all so much and stretched us all into producing work of a type that virtually all of us had not tried before. If you haven't tried Art Journalling before, I heartily recommend it (sorry about the pun!!) Anyway, I know we'll both be going back for more.
When I feel a bit more confident about what I'm producing, I'll upload some journal pages for you all to see.
