I got a chance to play a bit with my new Magnolia rubber and decided to join in with the Just Magnolia challenge this week of 'masking'. If you haven't popped over there already, get your skates on and go 'cos this weeks prize is fabulous - a MAGNOLIA INK MAGAZINE (amongst other things!!) I haven't used the masking technique in a while and thoroughly enjoyed playing with it again. The satisfaction you get when the scene comes together is wonderful!
So I've used the new christmas Tilda with Tree and masked the Magnolia christmas tree behind her. I have coloured with my Tombow markers on watercolour paper. To do something different with the tree, I spread glue over all the branches and added 'Diamond Dust' Twinklets to them. I found this gorgeous embellishment in Michaels last week and was so super happy! It is very finely ground glass and when adhered to your project gives it the most gorgeous twinkle and sparkle, but yet so very different from glitter or Stickles! Hopefully the photo below will give you a better idea of the twinkle!
I used BG Eskimo Kisses paper and distressed all the edges. I airbrushed with B01 copic behind Tilda and the tree. I used my SU! horizontal slot punch to thread the ribbon through and managed to tie a half-decent bow at the other end, lol!! The sentiment is Magnolia which has been distressed with inks and the tool.
Well, thanks again for your visit today. I really do love that you time to take to hop on over to my humble blog and leave me a comment! I wish you all a beautiful Sunday!
