Tilda With Cowberry Muffin by Magnolia


There is a brand new challenge blog on the block and it's called "Just Magnolia". It features challenges that use images from the Magnolia line of rubber stamps. I'm really excited about this new challenge blog as I love the Magnolia images.

The first challenge has been kicked off with a sketch and there is an awesome prize that will e given to one lucky entrant for this challenge that will be chosen by random. I didn't want to miss out on the fun of the first challenge so I managed to squeeze in getting a card made pretty close to the last minute in spite of my busy schedule.

Supplies Used:
Image: Tilda With Cowberry Muffin by Magnolia
Cardstock: Bazzill
Printed Paper: BasicGrey "Two Scoops" collection
Ink: Memories
Spellbinders Nestabilities
Martha Stewart Heart Scallop & Ribbon Threader Border Punches
Offray Ribbon
Chalk for background of Tilda
Techniques: Image is colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and blended with Gamsol. Crystal Stickles was applied to the wings and icing of the muffin.
Finished card size: 5 1/2 " x 5 1/2" square


Just Magnolia will be posting a new challenge every Friday. They also have a very talented design team to help with inspiration for the weekly challenges. Be sure to check them out!
