Good morning!! Yay!! It is Magnolia Down Under Challenges day!! This week we are looking for.... Easel cards! My goodness - you should really go and see what the DT have put together. WOW. Those girls really know how to make gorgeous cards. I've made a more... traditonal (if there is such a thing?) easel card using my new Magnolia Summer Club Bon Voyage stamps.
There are four stamps from the Club used here - Dangling Edwin, Porthole, Pelican and The Tide Always Turns sentitment. I had a great time playing with these. It was a great lot of stamps this time (and apprently the Fall Club includes some Christmas stamps so if you haven't ordered your stamp club yet......why not?).
My images are all coloured with Copics and the papers are Kaisercraft. I've added some little silver eyelets around the porthole and some pearl flourishs (Flourish with a Bling).The waves have some diamond stickles added to them and the sea has some Spica at You clear pen as well. The porthole is actually set in behind the front layer and I made my own little rope out of crochet cotton.
So you have until midday Saturday 14th August AEST to enter the challenge. It is a great opportunity to get out all of those new uninked stamps or even your older, neglected ones to play along with us. We'd love to see what you create!
