Guest designer for Simply Magnolia

Hi, I'm back again as promised, and soooooo excited to be showing you this project! 
I was thrilled when I found out a couple of weeks ago that the lovely ladies over at 
had chosen me to Guest Design for them, (thanks so much ladies - it means such a lot!) It's the first time I've ever been a part of a GDT and don't win things very often so this was a treat for me!
The challenge brief that I was given was
Tilda Wearing a Hat
and I thought of this Tilda instantly lol!
I didn't have her so it gave me an excuse to go on a craft spending spree and I bought some Magnolia Doo Bee Pops at the same time, some of which also found its way onto my creation.
I hope the pictures do this justice as it looks far better IRL and I wanted you to get a good idea of what I made.
It's a decorated/packaged foam Easter egg. The foam Easter egg has chocolate eggs inside (but forgot to take a pic before I wrapped it up!) I first painted the egg white using acrylic paint(I had previously used it for Easter last year and it was pink) and then once that had dried I did two coats of crackle paint. If you click on the picture below you might be able to see the cracks - it worked really well but it's covered by the cellophane and outer packaging!

The 'packaging' is a strip of Kraft covered in Magnolia paper. Tilda with her bunny from Butterfly Dreams collection is coloured using DI's. The Doo Bee Pops egg has SU seam binding tied round it and most of the flowers are WOC. The nesties shape that Tilda and her egg are sat on is labels twenty two and this was all layered with cheesecloth.

Ruffled SU seam binding and curled yellow florist ribbon was used to tie up the packaging.

Simply Magnolia are sponsored by Tilda's Town
 with this fab prize up for grabs
and if that wasn't enough to get you entering your fab creations, they're also having a DT call!

Challenges I would love to enter:
MDUC - Easter Greetings

That's all from me this week, hope you like my decorated Easter egg, don't forget to check out all the Simply Magnolia DT's awesome inspiration! Thanks, as always for your continued support, your comments are treasured :)
