Tilda and her bunny visit Magnolia Down Under

Good morning! What do you have planned for your Sunday? I have to vacuum today, and do the grocery shopping, yuck, lol. Why can't grocery shopping be as much fun as clothes shopping? hahaha. Oh well, it has to be done and it is great when you've got a fully stocked fridge and panrty ready for the week.

This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we are getting all Shabby Chic! I've been poking around some gorgeous scrapbooking blogs lately and took my inspiration for this card from several ideas I've seen from those. I have used the adorable Tilda and her Bunny stamp from Butterfly Dreams Collection which was in the Spring Club set.


The adorable stamp is coloured with Copics: Skin- E 13, 11, 00, 000, 0000, R 21, 000, Hair - E 44, 42, 41, 0000, Green for shirt and bow: G 82, YG 61, Hat - R32, 30, 00, 0000, Pants - E 42, 41, 0000, Shoes - W 5, 3, 1, 0, Bunny - W 3, 1, 0, E 41, 0000, R 00.

The circle, leaves and flowers are cut using Doo Hickey dies from good watercolour paper. I have a heap left over from my pre-copic days. I just dabbed my green and pink ink pads on them and spritzed them with water so they had a light wash of colour. The rolled roses are cut using a "die namic" from My Favourite Things stamps. The paper is new Prima Spring Time and the large white flower is also Prima.  The label shape was cut on my Cricut using the SCAL software and a shape from SVG Cuts.


Here is the inside with the cute little sentiment from the Hoppy Easter 2010 collection. I've stamped the sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa ink.


And my last photo is a litle bit dodgy, lol. I was holding the card directly in the sun trying to get the Spica pen to show in the photo. Tilda's pink hat is covered in Spica at You clear.


So that is my attempt at Shabby Chic. I'm sure I've missed an element here and there, lol, I think you're supposed to use some vintage lace as well, but I ran out of room on the card! haha.

I could love to enter this card in these challenges:
