Magnolia Vs Stampavie Challenge Blog Week 1

Oh my goodness, so here we are, a different challenge blog and a super duper design team (I can't believe that I even made it on this one) I am so going to miss the design teams from Tilda and Sarah Kay though. I never find enough time to blog hop anymore but I really hope to look in on you all as I will miss your work terribly.

This is my piece for this weeks wonderful sketch by Jay Jay. Such a great layout and fabulous for concertina cards (which mine was going to be until I changed it at the last minute).

I used the X-cut shape cutter to make the curve, embossed and inked this before folding. The image was coloured using Prismacolors and cut out using nestabilities. I have added tiny amounts of stickles to the dots on the paper and some of the flowers. The edges of the paper were inked using distress inks.

Paper - Basic Gray
Cardstock - Bazzill
Stamp - Rachelle Anne Miller - Playtime
Ribbon - Poppicrafts
Flowers - Prima
Brads - Queen & Co
