Just Magnolia and Stampin for the Weekend Challenges

The Stamping for the Weekend Challenge have a fabulous sketch for us to follow designed by Donna and the Just Magnolia Challenge is asking us to use 'Embossing' :-)




I used another newly released Magnolia image,, This one is callend Chef Tilda ;-)


As usual I coloured the image with copics and 3d'd her face and knees. I also used a little bit of Tilda's plate which I coloured then smothered with crackle glaze.The papers are all from Funky Fairys Papercrafts I used Gorgeous Gingham, Tiny Daisies, Doodlementals and Cherish paper kits on this one :-) I also used black magic coredinations which I swiss dotted in my cuttlebug folder and sanded,the ribbon is from my messy drawer and the brads are doodlebug, flower from Prima and leaves made using my Martha Stewart punch :-)
The sentiment is heat embossed with black sparkle EP and is from the Simon Says Clear Stamps SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS Lot Exclusive Set

Thanks for dropping by,, :-) I have candy at the top of my blog if you would like to see how you could win it !! but before you go please leave a comment so I know you've been :-)

What a cute image, I really like how you layered all of your patterened paper, very cool. Yes we are neighbors. I have been to Malta and need to come back soon. Does it get cold there in the winter?? Sicily is supposedly mild but to me I think it is cold, wet and miserable so I will be looking for an escape...
