I'm very excited to be posting this card today, as it's my first as a DT member for
on the Romance team!
on the Romance team!
I can't thank Rina enough for picking me, it means such a lot. Towards the end of last year I lost a lot of my confidence and Mr Mojo went on an extended holiday, so much so I didn't think I would ever get back to crafting in the same way as I used to.
Anywho, enough of my rambling, I'm here today to remind you that you still have almost a week left to enter Marvelous Magnolia's current challenge #61 Seeing Red
and to offer you some inspiration (if needed!) with my take on the theme.
It was made with Valentines in mind but could also be a birthday card I suppose....
The spotted red paper was scraps so I don't know the name of it :( but the other paper is Magnolia's Red Romance. I thought I would go with these fab fabric petals instead of flowers,but still couldn't resist adding the poppy to the tag!
Magnolia doohickeys used were: scalloped tag and sweet lovely lace (again! I'm using them a lot at the mo)
Paper layers are machine stitched and I remembered to add some cheesecloth from my stash (it's been getting very neglected lately)
I had so much fun colouring in Tilda Rose Scent (I think she's my favourite, so far!) using DI's. I added glossy accents to the perfume bottle and sprinkled white frantage around to finish off.
