Magnolia looking all Vintage~~





Hi All...
Another card featuring the lovely Tilda!
I made this card for two challenges today, MDU "Olden Days" and My Time to Craft "Pretty Pearls".

I have used papers by DCWV Latte stack for this card, wanted it to have a vintage feel. The Tilda and bench were coloured using just grey, black anf white (that was hard)~ I have never coloured her in like this before, what a great idea for that vintage look... Not sure I managed it as well as I would have liked, but enjoyed having a go anyway. The matting is done with a new Nestability in a scalloped rectangle, I bought this a while ago and never used it.

The lovely old bench is not a Magnolia stamp, I just picked this up at a craft fair and hoped it would be the right size for her to sit on, I was pleased when it was. A very useful stamp indeed...
I added flowers from my stash and some Pearls and Pins.
and again I have used a MS punch for the border~~

Bye Debbiexx

This is a beautiful vintage-look card! You've colored Tilda beautifully, and that park bench stamp is lovely! These colors and papers are gorgeous. I love the flowers and punched border. Thank you for joining us at Magnolia Down Under!
