Just Magnolia # 71, MDU # 62, A Spoonful Of Sugar, #120...You're Fintastic!

Hey crafty friends! Hope you are well...it is rather overcast and dull and dreary here! This weather is so not good for my head...its one of my major migraine triggers, ugh! Oh well, I have a quick post this afternoon with a card that I made for a few challenges. I was super excited to join the Magnolia Down Under challenge #62 as they would like to see, feathers, fur or fins on your Magnolia creations. It was the perfect chance for me to ink up my Summer StampClub stamps that haven't seen ink yet...shameful, I know! I also made this card for the Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge #71...Cracked Glass or Anything Goes. I did a very lose interpretation of the Cracked Glass...as I tried my Rock Candy Stickles for the first time it doesn't actually crack, which I originally thought it did, but it does give an antiqued glass like appearance. I also made this card for A spoonful of Sugar # 120 Challenge...Animal Crackers...hope Tilda's Seahorse friend counts for that, smile!

I made a 6x6 easel card from Colorbok cardstock and used Echo Park It's a Good Life which is just gorgeous paper and I am so in love with it. I can't wait to get the Christmas ranges of Echo Park they both look scrumptious. So I used the Magnolia Doohickey tag and cut it from craft cardstock I stamped the Magnolia Seahorse and then distressed the tag, crumpled it up and inked it with Tumbled Glass Distress inks. I then applied a thin coat of Rock Candy Distress Stickles and let it dry...it is very sparkly IRL and has a very cool affect IRL, unfortunately it didn't photograph well...I think I'm going to get the Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint though because that would actually crackle and give the Cracked Glass effect. I stamped Tilda as a Mermaid and coloured her with my Copics and cut her out with my Circle Nesties and then inked with Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Shabby Shutters. I then put a thin coat of the Rock Candy on Tilda's Tail and shell bikini top. I also added some Colorbok rain dots stickers and bling on the bubbles.

I added a few Prima flowers, American Crafts ribbon, and lace trim, and lots of bling here and there. The sentiment on the tag is a Melissa Frances rub-on and the other two sentiments are Kraftin' Kimmie sentiments stamps. Now, have you noticed my larger pics on my blog...I just figured out how to do this. It has been a long process for me to figure this out, I'm so not computer savvy but I am thrilled that I finally have bigger pics...although some of them have been too big, me thinks, but I am getting the hang of it so bare with me, lol!
